How do I access the recovery partition on an Aspire 5532?

I think my hard drive has taken a serious dump. It won't boot into windows home premium, I get the message: "Unmountable_Boot_Volume". How do I access the recovery partition on an Aspire 5532? Am I wasting my time trying? A friend says the hard drive is trash, I should replace it. That's fine, but how do I install my operating system on the new drive? I don't have any discs, everything was pre-installed.

There is definately a problem with the drive or partitions on the drive.  Whether that requires replacement, I'm unable to say.
