It sounds like you aren't using a proper restore disk - most manufacturers make them fairly simple to use, certainly not needing to put in anything complicated. Even using a 'standard' Vista disk gives you options but accepting the defaults is enough.

What make/model of computer is it? Laptop or desktop? You may have an option of not having to use the restore disk - try getting into the 'safe mode' menu (press F8 at boot up) and see if the is a 'repair my computer' option.
