3000 N200 Can't access Recovery Partition to do system Recovery

Hi,

 

I have a Lenovo 3000 N200 running Windows XP. Windows XP crashed beyond repair and I need to do a system restore. I do not have any Recovery CD's.

 

I am told to press the "Lenovo Care" button. This gives me various options and option 3 is to press F11 to diagnose hardware or recover your system.

 

If I select this, it is ignored and trys to boot Windows - obviously to no avail.

 

I have checked the hard drive. I have run a disk test and all is fine. I have also connected it to another computer and can see the various partitions including the recovery. I have also been able to remove important data and back this up.

 

I am therefore happy the hard disk is fine and the recovery partition is in place.

 

Is there any way of getting the system restore to kick in?

 

All help very much appreciated!

 

Mark
