Using an E-machines desk top with Vista 32-bit Home Premium.

Recently, I tried to install some service pack update & it wreaked havoc on my computer. After fiddling around with it (it had basically frozen while installing the pack), the whole thing ended up wiping Everything clean & in the end, I needed the install disc to fix it. (which I *just* found)

So now I'm stuck on some "Welcome Window" & it won't connect to the internet. I know the connection works, cause I'm using the same broadband line to it on my laptop now. I keep reading online about fixing w/ a "Recovery Manager" in the start menu, but I'm not seeing that anywhere. There's an error I see that says "Error 815"..."WAN miniport", etc.

What to do now? Thanks.

Recovery/restore mechanisms...are the province of the system manufacturer and implemented to slloe users to overcome the fact that they have no Windows install disk.

If you want to know the details of such for your system...a good start point would be the website of your respective system manufacturer and some scrutiny of the documentation/support for your system.
