Re: how to recovery my Windows Vista?

Try this.

Hold down the ESC key while it boots up.

This will bring you to a screen with 5 different options. Choose F11 and hit enter.

Follow the on-screen prompts.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: how to recovery my Windows Vista?

Use Disk Management to view your hdd partitions, select the Presario_RP and 'Mark as Active".On reboot the laptop should boot into Recovery. 'Do Not' tap any keys.

 

This is on XP's Disk Management, but the principle is the same in Vista:
