Sounds like you may need a data recovery company to try and get it back for you. Doing this is not cheap, it can cost a lot of money, so you best get a quote first before you decide. The cost of recovery may not be worth the data you want back. At any rate, I found one company in a search for you...

How to recover my pictures that was erased


If the pictures were on a memory card and nothing new has been written to the card (no new pictures), you may be able to recover them. Put the card into a card reader attached or built-in to your computer. Run a file recovery program.

To find a file recovery program, do a Google search for "file recovery" and your computer's operating system.

Restore advent z100


This process will erase ALL data. Your music, email, pictures, documents and other important files will be deleted.
Make a backup of everything you need to keep, before starting Advent Recovery.
To recover your Advent:
As soon as you press the power button on the computer, press F8
You will see an Advanced Boot Options menu screen, select Repair Your Computer
Once the recovery program has loaded, select Reinstall Windows
On the next screen select Start Full Destructive Recovery
Another screen will be shown and you will need to put a tick into the box to start recovery. It will also give you another warning about data loss.
Press the arrow that points to the right and the process will begin automatically
Your computer will take around 30-45 minutes to complete this and can be left to get on with it. Once finished, Windows will be reinstalled and your computer will be just like the day you bought it.

My computer will sometimes get stuck on MicrosoftUpdates-show


Updates immediately take over if you boot in safe mode?

Try turning the machine off in the middle by just hitting the power button to see if it will go to the Startup Repair screen so you can get to the Recovery Console. Let the startup repair run, then if it says it couldn't fix it, get to the Recovery Screen and see if you can run a System Restore and select a Restore Point (date and time) before the update was downloaded. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). System Recovery on the other hand Deletes Everything and sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

Try running the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.



If after the check disk utility you are still having problems then you might have to reinstall your operating system.

I accidently reset the laptop for orginal factory settings now user name is coming up howard neet a password to log on?


Geezus, with all the steps you have to do to start the Recovery to Factory Settings, how could you accidentally do it? Once you run the Recovery everything you had on the computer is gone. The computer is set back just like it came from the factory before you purchased it. You music, documents, pictures, videos, data and any programs you installed are history.

Format acer n214


Format? Format is for a hard drive, so what is it that you want to do? Are you trying to Format your hard drive so nothing is on it. Formatting a drive wipes out everything, the drive is completely empty until you put something on it.

Maybe you are talking about doing a System Restore which will set you computer back to a particular date and time before you started having problems. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was install after the restore point date and time you selected). To get to System Restore Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a restore point (date and time before you started having problems).

Maybe you are talking about System Recovery. System Recovery sets your system back to when you first purchased it from the store. It deletes everything. All your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and any program you installed after you purchased it will be gone. Normally to get to System Recovery you will have to hit one of the F1 thru F12 keys repeatedly when you press the power button. Your manual will tell you the exact key to hit. Sometimes the Recovery will be listed on the program list. Click Start/Programs/ and look for System Recovery, it might be inside of one of the Acer Folders in the program list. Hopefully there is a Recovery Partition on your hard drive called Recovery. Click Start/My Computer and look to see if you see a Recovery drive listed. Sometimes the drive is hidden so you can't see it. If the drive is not present you will need a set of Recovery Disks you created or the manufacturer gave you.

Maybe you are talking about Reinstalling Windows. If you do a Clean or Complete Install it will format the drive and delete everything before installing windows. There are ways to do a Repair Install that will save all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. You will need an Operating System Disk to perform a windows installation. It has to be the exact operating system as that which is on your Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker on the computer somewhere. If it says Windows XP Professional you cannot use a Windows XP Home disk to do the install and vice versa.

Restore or Recovery? Give us more details on what it is you are trying to do.

System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, programs (unless the program was installed after the restore date you selected).

System Recovery DELETES EVERYTHING and sets your computer back to when you first purchased it.

Aspire will not recover


LOL, not surprising, I've seen Recoverys not work lots of times. Your only option now is to reinstall windows. You can try doing a Repair Install which will save your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. But since you were trying to do a Recovery which wipes out everything, you might as well do a Fresh Install which wipes out everything.
