Recovery not working and couldn't able tomake recovery partition activ

Product Name and Operating system: DV6 21124el (windows 7 ultimate 32bit)
Hi,
I have this laptop for the last 3 years and never used the recovery option as I didn't need to, the recovery partition is there never been formated, now my windows is too slow and wanted to restore it to factory install settings but when i press the F11 button in the start to boot in to recover mode it just take me to windows boot screen without giving an error, I did some research and found out that i have to make the recovery partition as active partition but the problem is that i couldn't do it as there is no such option to make the partition active in WINDOWS DISK MANEGEMENT and couldn't see the recovery partition in DISK PART (in windows).
images will be attatched if needed actually there was no error so that's why I didn't upload any image.

thanks in advance hoping i will get a reply here.

The manual for the HP DV6 says to invoke the restore function the following way:

Quote:

Turn on or restart the computer, and then press esc while the “Press the ESC key for Startup

Menu” message is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Then, press
f11 while the “F11

(System Recovery)” message is displayed on the screen.

Is that what you are doing?

If so, and the Restore is not working, that implies that the recovery partition got damaged in some way.

You DID use the option to create Restore Media -- as indicated in the HP information -- right?
