Error loading operating system

while I was searching for solutions to a problem with windows mail (not sending emails) I encountered a runtime error. The solutions to the error were way beyond my abilities to understand so I started a system restore to the previous day, before I started trying to fix the problem with windows mail. During the restore a screen has come up dispaying th message "error loading operating system". There is nothing else on the screen and I have no idea how to go about sorting this out.
The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1720, windows vista is the operating system. It is an old laptop and I am unsure if I still have the installation disks.
Any help with this would be amazing. Thanks.
