Note book - how to boot up the recovery partition without the REcovery CD (DVD)

 

  I have a HP G56-126NR note book.  I would like to know is there anyway from the turning on the PC and then invoke certain Key(s) on the keyboard  to execute the Recover partition in order to restore the hard drive to original factory conditon.  I do not have

a copy of the Recovery disk.  I recalled I came across on HP documentation which would allow you to execute the recovery process by pressing certain key(s) without using the Recovery Disk.

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

You can usually launch Recovery Manager from the partition on the Hard Drive using the f11 key - see the link below.
