How to use Recovery Partition

 

Hi everyone
I'm thinking of formatting my laptop(v6182ea)  to restore everything to it's original state(actually kind of have to!) but the problem is that I've never done so via the partition.I used to use the Recovery DVD but since it's broken this is my only choice.So how do I do it and will I need to install the drivers myself after??
A step-by-step guide would be appreciated.

Run Recovery again by tapping F10 key immediately after power on. If you have an Advanced option choose it to format the hdd and reinstall XP.

 

If no joy,contact HP to order a Recovery set HERE
