What is the make and model of your pc?

Usually finding out hot to run the recovery option is not hard to find out with this info.

On systems that came with an OS like Vista you would be able to access the recovery partition unless major changes to the disk structure occur. The installation of Win 7 is one of the major changes, it modifies the boot structure of the drive and after that the ability to boot with the recovery partition is normally lost. If you do not have the factory install disks you would need to contact them to rebuild the system to out of the box condition.
