In a post I read it says NOT to use the Resource DVD that came with the computer. Where/how do I get a new valid DVD to replace it?

Just go to support.dell.com download all the latest drivers then burn them to disc

Software and driver versions change too quickly for any DVD-Rom to stay completely current.
You can use those old drivers if you wish, but why? The exception is the Alienware Command Center ... only download and use the newest version from support.dell.com (especially if you have an AW laptop).
It's better to follow Jeff's instruction above (if you really want a burnt DVD version).
