The recovery partition will delete the existing files of the drive, and restore windows to a factory state. If this is what you'd like to do.. then you can boot to the recovery partition by pressing the key combo during the bootup.

It should either be F11 (press it repeatedly) or sometimes its F8, and then choosing the option of 'Repair your computer'.

If you provide a model, it'd be easier to do research.

Thanks for your reply, thats what i want to do to recover it to the factory setting, for hp you can use f11, but for dell you have two options f2 for setup and f12 for boot options and there is no recovery option like hp computers, my cmputer is dell dimension 5150.

From what I see, it should be CTRL+F11.

I haven't looked, but it should explain restoring to factory new from the restoration partition in the manual.
