Start your computer up in Safe Mode and see if you can get to your recovery management that way.
when you first boot up look for the F-8 key that will allow you to enter and select Safe Mode (only) that should allow you to get to your desktop.

How do you do a hard reset on a Compaq Presario cq50-130us I've tried the F11 thing and it didn't work

According to the manual, only certain models had a recovery partition. The manual covers F11 recovery partition procedures for Windows VISTA, but not for Windows 7. If the unit has an SSD installed, it probably does not have a recovery partition. In that case you should use your recovery disks. These are the disks you were told to create at the time you purchased your PC. You can only make one set of recovery disks with the software provided, but they are only intended to allow you to restore the factory image should it become necessary. Many people do not read their manuals or the setup tutorials and fail to create these disks. Then, later, when they need them they are not available. If you don't have the recovery partition, and don't have recovery disks, then you have a problem. You will need to reload the OS manually, and then download and install the hardware drivers from the Compaq support site.

Click Start/My Computer and see if you have a drive label Recovery. If so turn off the computer and immediately hit the F1 thru F12 key repeatedly until you get into Recovery. The most common key among manufacturers to get into recovery is F11.

Sometimes there might be a Recovery in the Program List. Click Start/Programs and look for Recovery. Sometimes the Recovery will be inside of one of the eMachines Folders.

You can always go to your manufacturers website and see if they offer a restore disk and you can try eBay.

Recovery disk for xp operating system

if your pc came with disc and you have lost them, contact the pc manufracture and ask for replacement, you may need to pay for shipping or some sort of set fee.

if your computer did not come with recovery disk then do following.
most notebooks/desktops makers try to save money by not making recovery cd anymore, instead they put the recovery partition on the hard drive, which is hidden.
your computer should have come with recovery disc creator tool software from which you can make cd/dvds.

acer has e-recovery management tool built in.
here is your manual...

good luck

I lost one of the recovery to get another one...

if u have OS installed on hard drive there is a separate partition on hard drive that hold OS files in a safe place in case u lose ur recovery disk u can get ur system reset to Factory Default without recovery disk

if u want to factory reset ur system without recovery disk u can do following but it is always safe to have recovery disk in store in case ur hard disk crashes and u are in trouble

Factory Reset W/o Recovery disk

Compaq/HP: When you first turn on the laptop and see the Compaq/HP logo screen, press the F11 key (you need to do this before the Compaq/HP logo disappears).

if u want to make recovery disk with ur running system u can do this

The recovery disc program prompts you at first startup, but if you ignored it, you can search for it in the start menu. Once it's running, it prompts you through step by step.

the program is called "recovery disc creation wizard" u can type rec in search and u can find it easily

for more detailed procedure read this it is for desktop but steps remains the same
