I am using a Compaq C770US laptop and i cannot boot up my Vista Home premium 32 because of a disk read error. I don't have a recovery partition because I accidentally deleted it but i can easily order the specific recovery cds for the laptop to return it back to its factory condition. I am not sure if they would work because of the windows installation cd which i made in an attempt to have the computer repair itself using it but it failed due to no windows OS showing up and that is why i'm not sure that the recovery cds would work.
Would ordering recovery cds fix the problem? because i don't want to waste $16 if they don't work
