Unfortunately tony if it was a hard install all your info will be gone and you will not be able to get it back as I said if it was a soft install you can search it in the way i described if you can't find it doing that it is gone forever. I'm sorry to hear about your mum and the fact someone has lost your pictures of her in this way but if it was a full restore it would have formated your drives and drivers which dumps everything and starts again set to factory. The only other thing I can think you may be able to do but won't work if it was a hard restore is to go to control panel and restore your pc to a earlirer date but if it was a hard restore this will only take you back to the date this was done and the restore was completed. I will how ever make a few enquiries with a few more computer techs and see if there is any possible way known to retreive this info but to my knowledge if you do a hard restore it is gone, Unless you can retreive the fragmented info on the hard disc so do not defrage your drive. I will see if you will be able to and if I can get you a program to do it with but no promises. Once a gain I'm very sorry to here this, it makes me very sad to know this could have happened and god willing it never happens to me because I save all my pics of my grandparents who have already passed on my hard drives to and I can't replace them either.

    Well tony I have some hopefully good news for you I have found a way you maybe able to retrieve your pics but I need a bit of info from you and you will not be able to do it your self you will have to send it away I beleive but you would have to contact a company I have been able to find to do it. So please tell me this1 what is the type of computer the pics were on ie desktop, laptop.2 hard drive size 3 have you had anyone try to retrieve your data for you if yes what did they do 4 what country are you in

    I will also need to know if you know when the restore was done was it a full restore or not

  • jeff moore Jul 26, 2008

    my email address is email me the info

  • jeff moore Jul 28, 2008

    Tony if you want your pictures of *********** and all the other pictures you had back the only thing I can suggest is you send your hard drive away to vantage tech. They have a web site you can visit and a number you can call but they will need the info I asked for. thier address is and thier Phone number is 800 487 5678. This is why I wanted to know what country you are in. They are a usa company I believe but if you are not in the usa or canada let me know and I will try to find you another way, or another company.

I need to know how to reset bios password on a Dell Inspiron

you have forgotten the password?

one way is to simply remove the bios battery (remove the PC from power) and hook a paperclip (very carefully of course) around the 2 sets of terminals where the bios battery would usually go.. leave it for a good half hour to an hour to ensure all the circuit power has been drained, out the battery back in and boot it, you should hopefully be able to get in!

you might also reciave a message along the lines of "CMON checksum error, defaults loaded" - this is good it means the bios has been reset.

good luck

Restoring to factory settings

What Operating system? If it's XP start hitting F8 as it begins to boot and see if it will start up in Safe Mode.

Does she use it online? It could be a virus. If you have antivirus software and it boots in Safe Mode perform a scan.

Do you have the OS installation CD? If it's XP you can try a repair function.

Give us more info please.
