There is recovery partition on my compaq presario CQ50 - 209wm and I'd like some help oh how I can use that to restore/reinstall my vista?

Normally during the early start sequence (when the laptop displays the Compaq logo), you will need to press F9, F10 or F11 repeatedly (model varies)
Some also require you to hold the key down before you press the power button, then release it after the laptop has finished displaying the Compaq logo.
Hope that helps.
If you are still lost, post back.

Compaq Presario CQ50 Comes on but the screen is very dark!

The Presario's have an intensity control for the screen.

Mine is holding the function button (Fn) down an pressing F8 for brighter, F7 for dimmer.

The marking on my F7and F8 show an asterisk indicating "sun" for intensity.

Compaq presario CQ50 106CA. When powered on the power light and wireless light illuminates. The DVD sounds like it's initialising and fan runs, but screen blank. Ihave tried all basic fault finding...

Have you tried turning it on and selecting the function key combination for the screen? For example some screens use FN+F7, hold down the Function key and F7 to cycle between presentation modes.

I need to remove and replace the DC socket in a Compaq CQ50-209WM. How do I open up the casing in order to do this.

If you go to the Compaq web site and type in your question it will direct you to a pdf manual on how to remove the DC socket. Most Computer web sitetes offer great help on fixing your computer...

Good Luck Darren

Key on keyboard came loose

This is issue with laptops when you type fast sometime you hit the keys from the side and overtime they come loose or from overheating…the only way is by replacing the keypad…sorry.
