Question about Intuit Quicken 2001 Deluxe (256101) for PC

Lost checking account data

I have had difficulty with back up to a floppy recently as it tells me "source file" cannot be found. I input my checks on December 16th and planned to reconcile when my statement arrived, which occurred yesterday. When I went to reconcile, all my data from 4/20/08 to date is missing.

I have searched my entire computer and cannot locate the files with data. If I cannot restore somehow, I will have no choice but to enter 8 months of data.

If you can help me, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you and Happy New Year.

    Thanks for your help but I have done every possible search on my computer for back ups of any kind. I can still only find an account that ends with 4/20/08. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know as I have started re-entering data and it is a lot of work.

    Thanks much and have a good day.

Hi Donna.

Do a backup of the most recent data first, so that at least data up to 8 months ago are fine.

If you are sure that you searched for your data properly, and data is not found, then a possible explanation is that somehow an 8 month old backup had been restored by mistake.

If this is the situation, the only thing you can do is using an undelete software.

This may not work, sometimes there is no way to recover deleted files.

Do a backup of all your files before starting undelete.

Below you find different undelete tools, download, install and test a couple of them:

Hi
first a suggestion, please don't use floppys for data backup as they are quite unrealiable in my opinion.

if the file was ones stored on the computer and you remember the filename and file type? it is possible that you would be able to recover it.

Give this software a Try and see if it can find the file

Use the demo thats free to try.

    also it just came to me, you can scan the floppy with the software I posted above and see if it can recover the file from the floppy.

Have you looked in the quicken folder on your computer? In there, should be a folder dubbed back up which should also have a backup of your account.

Outlook Express data missing.


Offer several options.
1 As the .dbx file for the account has been lost, then you need a data recovery software to recover back that .dbx file. As the email recovery software comes into action when you have an .dbx file where the email recovery software can scan that file and then extract emails from that.
Your case is different, you have lost your .dbx file which means you cannot retrieve your emails.
To recover the .DBX file, through OE-Mail Recovery http://www.oemailrecovery.com/outlook-express-recovery.html
This data recovery software recoveres every file which was recently deleted or was deleted long time back. It can also recover files if your partition has been formatted, deleted or recreated.

Give it a try as it had helped me when the same case happened with me when i had lost my .dbx files.
2 You may need to unhide hidden files to see them. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.


Try also to restore the file using this online service. I found it in Google. https://onlinefilerepair.com/en/outlookexpress-repair-online.html

My grandma has recently been gifted a Polaroid TV as a Christmas gift. When the free view channels had the TV reset she lost the signal to an outdoor cctv camera for the building. We can't seem to get it...


probably the camera is either analogue or video . How was it connected to the TV via the Aerial Cable or via an AV input
If the camera is Analogue it may be on a ATV channel. So you would need to switch the input Source on the remote for the tv and check the ATV channels. If it was on a AV then try checking the AV input sources.
The free view channels is probably DTV source . .

How to recover my lost contacts from my iphone 4s?


If you already have an iCloud account, you should be fine.
Just restore you iphone with icloud and you will have all your contacts again.

if not, check if you got contacts on your SIM card. To do that, go to settings, Mail and contacts and choose import SIM contacts.

If you have a google email adresse set up in your phone, you can recover them from gmail.

hope i helped you

How do you flash the BIOS


What happens when you turn the computer on?

If the bios is working enough to enable you to boot from a CD download the new bios from asus along with there AFUDOS.exe flash utility and make a bootable CD and copy both to it.

If the bios is completly none functional you should be getting this msg when you turn the computer on,
Boot Block Compatible Version Ver .010
Bad BIOS checksum. Starting BIOS Recovery
Checking for floppy . .
Floppy not found
Checking for CD rom . . .
CD not found
Checking for floppy . .
Floppy not found
Checking for CD rom . . .
CD not found

Repeat adinfinitum.
If this is the case you need download the most recent BIOS from compaq and either copy it to a bootable CD if you have this capability or buy a floppy drive for $5 and make a bootable floppy on a working computer and copy this BIOS file to it. Then rename the bios file to A8N32SLI.ROM.

You may not even need make the floppy bootable but I would just in case.

Stick the floppy in the drive turn the computer on and you will see

Boot Block Compatible Version Ver .010
Bad BIOS checksum. Starting BIOS Recovery
Checking for floppy . . .
Floppy found.
Reading file "A8N32SLI.ROM" . Completed.
Start Erasing...
Start programing . . ./
Please turn off your system and power on again to get system back.

and happy days will be here.

My file won't open and the backup isn't working


I have had similar problems with an older version of MyInvoices, yet I first get a message saying, "Customer file is corrupted." I actually was surfing to see if anyone has had similar problems with the customer file. I have had to go to the extent of restoring things on another computer and then putting it back on my original computer. I have even, at times over the years, had to delete all of the files from the one computer in order to restore it from the other.

However, there is sometimes an easy fix to your problem: the program intermittently creates "Safe" versions of your file. These versions can be found in the "Safe" folder (which is located in the MyInvoices folder of the MySoftware folder under Program files). There are numerous "Safe" folder which are likely numbered. You can check the date and time that they were automatically created and select the most recent one. However, restoring it this way will cause you to lose any information that you inputted after this date/time. Hopefully you will have a very recent one and will be able to access your data. Hope this helps!

Bad bios checksum


You need to go to the website of whoever made the motherboard and get the BIOS flash utility and the BIOS binary file to update your BIOS. Make sure you get the right one, as using the wrong one can render your motherboard worthless. The BIOS file has to be the exact match. There is no such thing as close in this situation.
If you are not sure of the exact make and model, get te free Belarc Advisor from http://www.belarc.com
The BIOS chip holds information about your motherboard hardware. It is reprogrammable. It uses what is known electrically erasable read only memory. This is also called Flash memory. Reprogramming is called flashing. When you flash the BIOS, all data is erased, then the new data is written. The flash utility will most likely allow you to save the old contents, but you might have an extremely tough time recovering from an improper flash. You'll also probably need a couple of floppy disks, one of which may have to be bootable. If you need a bootable floppy disk, you can get an image file from http://www.bootdisk.com.
