Computer OS: Windows VistaBrowser: IE
Tried to recover my system thru hard disk drive by pressing F11, can't even get to the start menu so no go there. Help!
Hello,First confirm that the hard drive is still working. So next reboot the computer and then look for a message on the screen that instructs you to press a key to enter "Setup", usually the key is Del, F2 or F10. Once you press the key the display is redirected to the motherboard Bios setup pages. From there use the keys specified on the page to navigate to the list of drives installed and confirm that the hard drive is listed along with it's make and model number.

Finally, got my answer, other computer problems! Did as you instructed. How do I know which is the hard drive listed? Make and model would be like what? Where are we going with this? I don't consider this the second question as you really didn't answer what I asked which is how do I order or download recovery disks?
Unless you have added another hard drive there should only be one hard drive listed. The purpose in checking the hard drive is just to see if it is still working and determine if a new hard drive is needed as well.For the recovery disks please follow the instructions at the link below:http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07143&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3820313
