Retieving Documents and Pics after system restore

I did a system restore after one of the idiotic Techs w/Verizon Fios told me I needed to do that. I lost all of my docs and pics. Is it possible for me to retrieve them? I have a HP pavilion a808x.

Hello there.

Yes system restore is a double edged sword, i personally wouldn't use it for much.

Fear not as we can download all the drivers again and set things up to how they were.

Please click here if you wish to order a setup CD that contains all the drivers. This is only for US or Canadian residents.

Alternatively click here to get the page with all the drivers listed. You can download them one at a time. The drivers you need will be:

Realtek AC'97 Audio Driver Update
HP Multimedia Keyboard/Mouse Driver Update
Agere Systems PCI Soft Modem Driver Update
and finally HP Update Security Vulnerability Update

The rest of the drivers should be set up nicely.

Please try these drivers and get back to us.

Hope this helps.

How do I update my FIOS


FIOS is not the right word, you mean BIOS. This is software for the motherboard. You need to know the make and model.

It may be best to kill the Virus or Malware first on another PC by using a USB Hard Drive container or connecting directly to the Bench PC. The PC you use to do this needs to be on a PC that is not connected to the Internet and can take on a Virus... a Bench PC made for repairs. If your Hard Drive is that infected you could create more damage the longer it is running. Your Pics could be just deleted and mybe able to be Restored from the Recycle Bid or using a Data Recovery Tool... again from another Machine. if you do it youself... start with a new HD and reinstall fresh with all updates and virus protection. Add old drive and clean. See if the data is present on the old drive after clean.

I already have verizon internet"fios' how ever i want to purchas cable for my hd tv


Usually Verizon can offer HD TV over the same FIOS cable. If you call them, they can connect it to your TV for you.

If you call the cable company they can probably set up cable for you. The two shouldn't interfere with each other.

Bundling my services with Verizon but they say it may not work as i have Windows 98, 128 omb Ram. What do i need to do?


You need to upgrade or just buy a new computer. Im assuming your getting Verizon DSL or FIOS
which need more computer power for the software that it needs.

Try looking for a new computer that is Windows XP Service Pack 3 or Windows Vista
with at least 1 gig of ram. That should fix the problem of verizon services notbeing compatible with your hardware.

I have Verizon Fios install in my home. I use to have Comcast. This is the situation, before the Fios my linksys wireless router was connected directly to a modem. Now my linksys wireless router is...


Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
