Sorry friend you have lost your documents permanently.
You shuld made backup before recovery. Actually the recovery disk removes all the data/software you have install after first boot. After recovery your lap is looks like new one which you have bring from store, regarding software and data stored on your lap.

Thanks

Factory reset hp Compaq 6910p


This is how you put it back to Factory Settings...
1) Press and Hold the F11 key during boot.
If you are unable to get into Windows to start the recovery then you start the process when you first switch on the PC.
As soon as you turn on your PC, tap the F11 key on the keyboard until you get the "Windows is loading files..." message. When Recovery Manager has loaded click advanced options. Choose system recovery.
If you wish to try and backup any data then choose backup your files first and follow the on screen instructions. To run the recovery without backing up your data choose to recover without back up.
The recovery will launch and restore your system back to it's factory default state.
This is how you put it back to Factory Settings from desktop...
1) You can start the recovery from within Windows as follows:
Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Recovery Manager
Click Recovery Manager again
Click next when the Recovery Manager program loads. You will be prompted with several questions before the recovery starts.
"Would you like to perform a program recovery?" - choose no
"Would you like to perform a driver recovery?" - choose no
"Would you like to launch Microsoft System Restore?" - choose no
"Would you like to recover your computer to its original factory condition?" - choose yes
The computer will now restart and launch the recovery program.
NOTE: Some computers are F10.
OR
1) Turn on the computer
2) Start tapping/pressing F12 for Boot Menu
3) Insert HP Recovery Disc
4) Select DVD/CD-ROM and press enter
5) Press any key to start the installation

Restore factory settings programs step


On newer (Vista and up) to restore to factory press F11 at HP splash screen this will put you factory restore mode ( not earlier restore point) then follow the on screen instructions including backup option of files if you haven't done this if no backup is needed choose to continue without backup and this will bring your HP laptop back to factory, out of the box, condition. You will have to reinstall programs of choice and update adobe free products like Adobe Flash and Reader and all of the windows OS updates good luck

Need too restore to factory


The HP Mini laptop comes with either the Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating system.
You can restore the HP Mini to its factory settings using the laptop's recovery partition.
Restoring the HP Mini to its original factory settings will get rid of hard to eliminate viruses on the laptop's hard drive.
A factory restoration is also a good way to get rid of older files still stored on the computer that you no longer need and start with a clean slate.

Windows Vista
Click "Start" in the lower-left corner of your HP Mini Windows Vista home screen, then type "Recovery" into the Search box at the bottom of the Start menu. Click "Recovery Manager" in the list of options that appears above the Search box. The HP Recovery Manager will open. Click "Advanced Options" and then "System Recovery." Click "Next." Your HP Mini will restart. The HP Recovery Manager will open up automatically after the restart is complete. Click "System Recovery," and then click "Next." Click "No" if a message pops up on your screen asking if you want to use Microsoft System Restore. Select "Recover without backing up your files," and then click "Next." The restoration process begins. This could take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the of your hard drive and how much information you have stored on it. The HP Mini will restart when the laptop has been restored to its original factory settings, and you will be prompted to set up Windows Vista. Windows 7
Click the "Start" icon in the lower-left corner of your HP Mini Windows 7 home screen. Click "All Programs" and then click "Recovery Manager." Click "Recovery Manager" again to open the HP Recovery Manager program. Click "System Recovery" from the list of options beneath the "I need help immediately" section on the left side of the program. The HP Mini will automatically restart and open the HP Recovery Manager. Click "System Restore," and then click "Next." Click "No" if a message pops up on your screen asking if you want to use Microsoft System Restore. Select "Recover without backing up your files," and then click "Next." The restoration process could take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the of your hard drive and how much information you have stored on it. The HP Mini will restart when the laptop has been restored to its original factory settings, and you will be prompted to set up Windows Vista.

Unable to reinstall DVD backups after HP SYSTEM RECOVERY failed


Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.
