You can try:
1. go to your "Recycle Bin" and search for any semblance of the document. The filename maybe different as well as the extension. You can try use Notepad to view the text contents or even MS Word if allowed;
2. go to your c:\Documents and Settings\"your username"\Local Settings\Temp. Do the same as in #1;
3. Use a file recovery program. Do a Google for freeware. A good one (though paid) is GetDataBack.

Since it was not saved, you might be able to only recover part of the contents (if ever).

Hope this be of help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Ran toshiba recovery media and didn't back up or save documents and picturses can i restore them

All documents, programmes and data on the disc cannot be easily restored as they have been deleted. There are several companies that offer a restore service but can be very expensive.

How do I restore a word document that I accidentally saved another document over?

Not possible, once the word document is over written with another document using the same file name. If you had made a backup of the document then you could retrieve the backed up document.

My gateway nv59 laptop is missing the BOOTMGR, also all my data was deleted from doing a recovery issue, but i did not save anything onto a dvd or flash drive.

As you said the BOOTMGR is missing , and you lost your all the Data. Then i Would like to suggest that please re-install the Operating system of the computer , and do a Fresh Start.
In order to get back your Data, try to recover the data using data recovery software, sometimes they work.
They wont be able recover all files, but they does in order to pics, and documents file.

In case if you have any trouble come back to fixya.
Thank you

Re-set factroy settings evehams laptop

Most Evesham laptops have PC angel protection this allows you to access the factory hidden image created by the manufactures before it was released for sale. Some users remove this but I believe its a great way to get you laptop back to the way nature intended.

Unless you have either deleted this using a partitioning tool it should be available for you to reset the laptop back to the original.

N.B> make a backup ot all your documents first to either USB drive or optical media as these will be lost.

N.N.B> all application programs that you have installed since you bought the laptop will also be lost so make sure that you have copies of the licences, one of the best ways to do this is to use a U3 stick drive using this U3 Product key from Nirsoft this way you will have then on a separate media and saved to a text file.

Hope this Helps

N.B. > Its a good idea to buy Norton Ghost now at version 14.0 when you get you laptop back to the way you want it and save the compressed image to a DVD-ROM for 20min recovery the way you want it

I want to transfer a typed page from Windows office to usb flash drive thanks

you have to save the typed page as a document. These are usually saved to "My Documents" but you can go to "File" and then click on "save as" and it will bring up a window. The default location is in "My Documents" in the top part of the window. Click the drop down box and choose your flash drive instead. Give the document a name if it doesn't already have one and hit the save key.

Saving documents from the internet to 'My Documents'

It will usually do it automatically. Have you looked in all the folders in my documents? Also, if you can't get it to do it automatically, go to save as, choose my documents then click save. It should be there.
