Repair your computer option not working (restoring factory backup)

Hey!

I am facing this issue since morning.
I have Dell Inspiron N5010 with WIn 7 home premium. I want to start its built-in recovery but When after pressing F8, I click on Repair your computer .This option didnt work and windows 7 begins its loading.
Kindly tell me any solution for this problem

The option works complety fine by using deskettes, but I want to use internal recovery.

F8 normally show the advanced boot options. does it?
Advanced Boot Options


selecting "repair your computer" shows you Windows 7 "recovery environment" does it? Most of the time it has been modified by manufacturer and displays an extra option like "factory restore" or something like that. Is that option there?

do you want to restore to "factory defaults"? So you wanna go to the state that it was when you bought it? If so... why?

Restoring Your Computer´s Software to the Factory Settings | Dell

or maybe CTRL+F11 on boot (?)
In particular, they’ll tell you that in order to perform a PC Restore on your Dell Inspirion you need to:
  1. Turn on the computer and during the bottom process, a blue bar with
    Dell Official Site - The Power To Do More | Dell appears at the top of the screen.
  2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11> if you wait too
    long and the operating system logo appears continue to wait until you see
    the Microsoft Windows desktop; then shut down and try again

Sorry I posted so many suggestions in a few minutes. Is your system still bootable? If so start it up and show a full blown screenshot of disk management

1. Yes , when I used that option long time ago ,it shows recovery environment with an extra option of Factory restore.
2. No i just want factory default recovery but it doesnt mean that i want to go in the state when i bought it. Only C: will be affected with the option.

3.The problem is now when I click on Repair your computer option,Instead of starting of recovery environment ,The windows booting start.I am curious why this option is not working or there is any solution to that.

Option "repair your computer" seems to be linked to normal startup now. Don't know why.
Can you show me the bootmenu... because that's where the link is defined.

From elevated command prompt Elevated Command Prompt :
bcdedit /enum all >c:\bcd.txt
and post c:\bcd.txt here. You can delete c:\bcd.txt afterwards
