Lost files I suspect that my Aspire 5101 has the wrong drive identified as I appear to have lost all the files in My Documents. The drive has a strange ident in the BIOS setup. Can the drive be auto detected?

    I have got the same problem where I lost everything. The computer does not boot all the time especaily when it is cold. Once started it seems to work ok. Save some dinero, I thought it was the hard drive so I bought another one and guess what, it didn't fix the problem. I tried all the updates, even the BIOS update and it doesn't work. One thin I noticed, when I go to the BIOS, it doesn't have my DVD rom drive on it for some reason. Seems to disappear. I contacted Acer tech support and they said I got a hardware issue but would not go any further than that.

Check your downloads directory on your hard drive. You should be able to get there by going to "My Computer" - " Drive C-Local Drive" and the it would either be "My Documents" or "Users" - "Downloads" or "My Documents" .You can also go to Start - Search and search for files with a date stamp of the date you downloaded them. You should also be able to go the NavMan website and just re download the files to your system again and note the folder it is saving them to.
