Does "Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu. " erase my memory or files from computer?


No, delete restoration data just removes data that was saved just before your computer crashed or shut down without going through the normal shut down procedure. The operating system makes little temporary files while you are working on something so that it can restore them if the system goes down. Nothing happens to your real data files, documents, music, pictures, videos or memory.

Recover data from my backup


Which operating system and what data do you need to recover ???
You can create a backup disk with Microsoft Windows 7 or any other version of the operating system.
This disk will contain the files, programs and settings that you chose to save during the backup operation.
Yet, this disk does little good for you if you do not know how to retrieve that backup data.
Luckily, Microsoft offers a simple process for restoring this data to your operating system.
Even a basic computer user should have no problem restoring her backed up data from a backup disk.

Insert your Windows 7 installation DVD into your optical drive.
Reboot your computer and press a key to boot from the disk once prompted.
Click "Repair your computer."
Choose the hard drive that contains your copy of Windows 7.

Click "Windows complete PC restore."
The latest backup data will be selected by default. I
n the event you wish to restore earlier backup data, press "restore from a different backup."
Click "Next."
Your computer will now restore the backup data into Microsoft Windows 7.

I need reset


Looks like you have a major problem.
If the notebook can not start from a fresh reboot, then you may need to restore the entire system from either the restore partition on the hard drive, or from the supplier's Restore CD-ROM (disk).
Be warned that a full system restore will "wipe" all your data from the hard drive.

Before you do that:
FIRST STEP: If the hard drive is still operational, you will probably still be able to get to all your useful data and make a copy of it. Then you can perform a system restore/install and transfer the data back to the newly-installed system's hard drive.

If you need to access the data on the laptop in a hurry, then the easiest thing to do is get access to another (2nd) computer, take out the hard drive from the failed laptop, put it into a portable drive carrier with USB connection (you can buy this from a computer shop) and access the data on the hard drive that way via the 2nd computer. That can be a real help when your laptop is not working and I have used it on several occasions when I or my customers have had a broken/failed laptop.

SECOND STEP: Once you have copied all your data that you need from the failed laptop's hard drive, you can put it back in the laptop and perform a system restore/install and after that transfer the data back to the newly-installed system's hard drive.

Good luck!
