Unable to boot to Recovery Partition

HP Recommended
Pavilion 500-311no
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I am currently unable to boot to the recovery partition to restore my computer to factory installation, but the Recovery partition that was around 13 gb is still there and has files on it and i did not touch them, but still i cant use F11 to boot to recovery.

 

Any help ?

Please explain.

 

Turn the computer off.

Turn the computer on, and repeatedly touch the ESC key, to see if a menu appears, giving you the option to use F11.

 

Or, turn the computer off.

Turn the computer on, and repeatedly touch the F2 key, to try to force that menu to appear.

 

Or, does pressing F11 _begin_ the recovery process, but it displays an error-message, and does not complete?
