Vista Repair Disc
It explains how to burn the image to disc and you can use it to repair your installation by booting from the disc.
There's no such thing as a stupid question, but they're the easiest to answer.

useful information if you have not given a recovery DVD then Recovery is on Hard DISK
Restart your computer and start tapping the F8 key approximately once per second, until the Advanced Startup Options appear
tap F8 on boot up(power up)

Also after f8 I do not have a repair option.

it looks like some one has formatted the hard disk and removed the recovery partition
which contained the WINDOWS Vista install.wim file.
and installed a copy of windows XP
you can purchase a copy of XP it is not too expensive(unless you buy it from PCwoo)
or if you got access to i386 folder make your own
This will show you how to create a bootable Windows XP Home Edition or Professional installation/setup CD-Rom.if you got i386 folder on a computer you can use SP2 instead of Sp1
if manufacturer is selling Vista recovery DVD for £47 it is a bargin.as it has all the drivers and extra software.

here is a bootable windows Vista ISO
you downoad the ISO and then use imgburn to burn it to a CD
then you down load a little program File manager called A43.exe
and put it on memory stick
boot with the CD and on command prmpt navigate to the CD rom drive
say if your CD is E:
E: and enter
then DIR if you see A43.exe
A43.exe and enter
that will give you a GUI windows like explorer copy your data to memory stick
to download imgburn and A43.exe google
alternative the one they probably recomend at PCWoo
is to buy a hard disk USB container for £29.99 and put your 2.5 inch hard disk in there
then plug it into your new laptop and you can see your Data.
there are also lots of bootable linux Cds like Knoppix and ubantu
which are bootable and let you see your C: drive

you said you just want to recover your data for instance word documents etc
Basically all I now want to do is recover all the stuff on my hard drive and buy a new laptop
that vista bootable cd will not repair your Xp but will let you see your C: drive and copy mydocument folder.
that is the only PE preinstalled environment CD Microsoft allow people to distribute.
Microsoft also owns an XP PE called ERDcommander
but they do not distribute that one.
