A little more information would be enable people to assist you better :) such as

1) What phone are you using?
2) Which version of the Windows Phone are you running?
3) Did you to hard reset (same as factory reset) or soft reset?

Presuming you are using Windows Phone and did a hard reset.

This will completely wipe your phone.

1) Download and use the lumia recovery tool
2) Connect your phone with the usb cable that is provided with your phone as that is a factory cable
3) Follow the on-screen prompts
4) Post back with results - if it worked or not :).
