Format / Startup Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I was attempting to clean my laptop using the System Restore (I beleive it's called that). My goal was to reset it to it's factory settings before setting it. The laptop accidently shut down in the middle of the proccess. Now with starting my Compaq Presario F700, the error message Err2Err3 appears. It's an error found when there is an issue with the operating system. How can I put Windows Vista back on this computer. I do not have any backup or starup cds. I tried making one with my current laptop, but since this is a Windows 7 version, I was unsuccesful. Please help!
