Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have Window Vista on a HP conputer. I have 3 companies on Quick Books. Turned off the computer on Friday working fine. Turn back on Sat evening and the computer message was all programs lost reboot and recovery F11. I did F11 the computer reinstalled Windows Vista but all was lost. I reprogramed in my Seagate hoping that this had did its job. It reinstall the Seagate program but I cannot find where this machine has backed up any of my work. Is it all lost or am I not doing something wrong?

    If the seagate was your only hardrive and you reformatted or did a full install of windows , it is lost.

    If you did not format or the seagate was an external backup drive, then there is a good chance of the info still being there..

If you reformatted the drive the data was on (as well as where the backup was (don't backup data from one hard drive to the SAME hard drive)), then all hope isn't lost.  go to download.com and look for file restoring programs.  a number of them are free and can recover data on hard drives as long as their sectors haven't been rewritten.

My touchsmart iq770 wont run windows vista unless im in safe mode and i have lines through my screen


Go to support.hp.com and look up your computer.
Download and install the Vista drivers.
If you don't see Vista drivers the computer won't run Vista. Go back to XP.

If this helps please vote for my solution.
