I did a system restore back to the out of the box state without saving my files is there anyway i could recover them now or were they deleted from my laptop?


Which operating system ?

Performing a system restore can be useful if your computer's operating system has become unstable because of viruses, malware or missing files.


Prior to performing a system restore, you should backup your personal files and save any programs to removable media.


Recovering lost software can be more time-consuming if you do not have a media backup of the installation software.


In most cases, you can download applications from Internet sites and recover missing license keys and other information through the software manufacturer.


As a last resort, you may also opt to undo your system restore so that you can recover your lost software.


Go to your computer manufacturer's support website.

Enter your model number, computer type, serial number and other information requested. Browse through the system software selections.


Select any that you need to reinstall.

You may also be able to order a system recovery disk.


Insert a software installation disk or connect removable media that contains the installation program.


Allow Windows to autoplay the disk.

Begin the installation program.


If you do not have the license or key required to run the software but have purchased the program, contact the software developer's customer support department via email or telephone.


Visit the software developer's website.

Browse through the products page, and click on the download link for the lost software.


Select a directory to save the installation program.

Once the program downloads, open it, and re-install the software.

Undo System Restore


Click on the "Start" button. Select "Control Panel." Click on "Classic View" in the left column.


Open "System." Click on "System Protection" in the left column.

Click on the "System Restore" button.


Click on "Undo System Restore." Click "Next," then "Finish."


also you might have a look at this


Performing a system restore will keep your data files intact; however, certain files may be deleted in the process.

Deleting a file doesn't mean that it's lost forever.


If nothing else has needed the space since the deletion, the file is still available and can be recovered.


Undelete Plus makes it easy to recover these lost files.


Download and install Undelete Plus.


http://undeleteplus.com/


Once installation has completed, launch the program.


Select the drive(s) under "Drives" you would like to recover deleted files from.

Click the "Start Scan" button.

Once the scan is complete, the right-hand pane will list files that are available for recovery.


Select the files you wish to recover.

By default, they will all be selected.


Select a location to which you would like to save the undeleted files.

You will be given the option to save the files in the original folder selection.


Click "Start Undelete."

Your files have now been recovered and restored.

Hope this helps.

I have apply NO TRACK software on my windows xp. Now itn shows NTDRL MISSING want I start my Laptop i have tried alot to fix it but none is helpfull. Please help me soon.


Hi,

The error can be resolved by the following steps,
  • Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  • When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  • Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  • Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  • You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  • Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk.
  • In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\
Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Regards,
Shrey

Hard drive is missing a pin on the ide connection is or can it be fix or repaired or a way to get the information of the drive


IDE hard drives connectors are supposed to be missing one pin. That missing pin acts as a "key" to prevent connecting an IDE cable upside down.
Sample picture to show where the missing pin should be: remaker.jpg

When plug in the pc the hdd can open but the problem is some files is missing but if you check the properties of the hdd its full and i can only see few items inside it.


It's clear from missing files that your hdd is infected from virus. Virus has a property to hide your files so that no one could see them but they these files are not permanently deleted. Thats why hdd properties shows they are full.
Method 1: Click "My Laptop" Switch to the advanced view (if you're using Windows XB.) Click "Folder Administrator" Click the tab called "Viewer" Check "Show all files or folders or applications" If you also wish to view system files, Uncheck "Show protected operating system files"
Method 2: Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box. Go to this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoft WindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvanced In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1. Now you're all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect.
Method 3: If none of the above methods work, please download Smart Virus Remover or any other good software from internet. GOOD LUCK

DdI bought a pc without a hard drive.When i replaced the hard drive, the screen then told me i had to activate windows.Do i need to purchase software for that?


Maybe. This depends on Microsoft's view of your product key. First attempt to let Microsoft activate Windows over the network connection (if the computer is on a wide-area network). If it isn't able to activate, you should call Microsoft's activation: (888) 571-2048 . (A set of windows should come up to walk you through the activation over the phone.)

Activation checks if the same product key is being used by one (and only one) computer. It also notes if the computer has undergone major changes - and is a new computer by Microsoft's viewpoint. If you have a valid product key (not on any working computer) but have a new computer, you should be able to get it activated without paying for any new software. However, if Microsoft says you have an invalid license, you may have to buy a product key.

Please note: activation with Windows 7 can be a pain if a false "invalid or pirated software" conclusion is made by the Microsoft computer. The Microsoft staff can walk you through the fix - I found it online back when I was upgrading to Win7 but have lost the link. (WinXP -> Win7 at the time)

Activation is required to keep Windows working normally. Without that, Windows Updates will be unavailable and you will eventually get a weird background with regular "not a valid copy of Windows" messages.

I hope this helps.
