HP Pavilion. Reset to Factory Settings advice

Im wanting to restore my PC to factory standard. Ive backed up all the files i need to keep, removed all periferals. Im wanting to start from scratch again, hense the restore to factory standard!
Got the book out that came with my PC it says to press F11 key until system recovery starts then advanced options etc but it wont work!!! It just starts up as normal!! All the info i pull up on the net says to use the F11 key too.
Another option is to go thru the vista start menu, into All programs then PC help & tools then recovery manager BUT i cant see PC help and tools in the 'all programs' area!
I have done a system recovery ages ago and can vaguely remember having the same problem but cant recall how i fixed it!!
My system has a recovery partition rather than disks!
