Hi gateside,

When you say the computer crashed you mean Windows is not booting up to the desktop or it gives you a Blue screen error message on your monitor. If this is your case then your data actually is still in the hard drive, but the problem is that you are not able to access it since your Harddrive is not able to bootup to Windows.

What I would suggest that you do first is try booting up to Safe Mode, to do this you can keep pressing F8 as soon as you turn on the PC until you get the "Windows Advanced Options" menu then use the arrow keys to choose Safe Mode and press enter. If you don't get any errors and you are able to login to your account in Safe Mode, then you can still copy and backup your files and pictures in your computer.

If this doesn't work the only other option for you to get your pictures is by making the hard drive that you have as a slave in another computer so that you can copy files. This is a tedious process, since you will need another computer and that you have to open up the case and take out the hard drive. I would suggest that you have a tech friend help you out with this procedure or bring your computer to a shop so that they can do this procedure for you.

Now in the worst case scenario that your hard drive is not being detected at all, or the hard drive is just making "clicking sounds", then you most likely won't be able to retrieve the data anymore. Except if you have a 3rd party data recovery company work on it, which is costlly, that I can't recommend it to you.

If you bought your PC from a manufacturer like Dell or HP, check with them if you get help or parts replacement for your hard drive if required.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

First you need to figure out wether its a hardware or software problem. If the power supply went bad all your information is there when you put a new power supply in. If the hard drive is bad, you might have lost some data.

if you do a partial install and not a full recovery on the computer you should be able to recover the files. consult your computer manual for the directions on how to do this. if you would post your computer make, model and operating system, it would help me help you better

is the computer getting power?
are all fans clean and operating inside and out? (may require removing the computer cover or side)
do you have the manual and/or CD?
please answer a few of these questions and post again..

How do I transfer my pictures from the kodak easyshare to the shutterfly gallery? I cannot even transfer my recently added pictures to the Kodak gallery.

If your pictures are in jpg format, you can download Picasa, free from Google at and use it to upload your photos. You can also do it using your browser if it handles Flash. If not, use the one by one uploader at Shutterfly. I recommend using Picasa, because it will find all the pictures on your PC and sort them by date. It includes a photo editor and facial recognition too. I would drag all your pictures to the "Pictures" folder to make it easier to work with them.

How to install software for kodak m530

Two software programs are recommended for your camera:
  1. KODAK Share Button App:
    • Upload your tagged pictures and videos from your camera to the KODAK Gallery for FACEBOOK, FACEBOOK Social Network, YouTube and FLICKR Services, or e-mail.
    • Transfer pictures and videos to your computer.
    • Set the date and time on your camera from your computer.

  • Organize your pictures with your own tags, star ratings, and date and time stamps, then use the search feature to quickly find any picture in your collection.
  • Edit your pictures with ease; select from a variety of simple tools that reduce red-eye, improve lighting, remove wrinkles and blemishes, and add text.
  • Create photo projects online or at home; choose from hundreds of templates and designs to create album pages, cards, invitations, and much more.
  • Manually upload pictures and videos to the KODAK Gallery for FACEBOOK, FACEBOOK Social Network, YouTube and FLICKR Services, or e-mail.

My computer crashed when they fixed it all pictures were lost

How did they fix your computer? If it has the same hard drive in it, but has been re-imaged, then yes.
If they replaced the hard drive, no.
Unless you have uploaded the pictures to a Kodak share site, they would not have a copy.

Lost photoes on old computer

Hello, Don't know what you are calling "crashed" was it do to the operating system, the power supply, or hard drive failure ? Hard drive data can be recovered even if the drive has failed. If th PC died for some other reason you can install the drive in a different PC as a slave and get your data back.
I am a computer tech.

DTXPRESS IV SPECIAL changing cymbal(crash) sounds?

the right crash is a '3 zone pad' (notice the semi-circular groove around the front edge of the pad).

this means you should get a different sound from the bell, the main area of the pad, and the front edge.

In order to mimic a real crash cymbal, the 'crash' sound comes from hitting the edge of the pad.

In reality, there are ribbon switches (like mobile phone keypads) underneath the bell & edge areas of the pad that detect hits to these areas.
