Computer Boo Boo



This has nothing to do with Halloween...Unfortunately!

I just did something to my computer that made everything go away. All my files and settings....EVERYTHING! I was having problems with my computer, so I thought I would be the computer guru (NOT) and fix it by reinstalling my Vista. BAD IDEA! The computer said it was going to save everything and it did, but I don't know how to get to it or get my computer back to the way it was before the reinstall. SO! Now, I am going to run my computer to someone tomorrow and hopefully they can fix it and get it back to the way it was before I decided to ruin it. I am going to bed now and sulk! I won't be on here much until I get my computer back. I am using my DH's computer and he is patiently waiting......

I don't even want to know how much this is going to cost. Boo Hoo!

Oh Kim! I'm so sorry this happened! I know so well how you are feeling. I tried doing something similar once years ago and messed things up completely. Steve was able to fix whatever I did, but I stay far far away from trying to "fix" anything on the computer now.

Good luck and hopefully it won't cost too much!

there is a way to tell your hard drive "brains" that you want to return to all your settings from a certain date.......like last week.

call someone in tech supt and ask them how to restore the brain back to previous times...

Oh no! The good news is that the computer saved everything. It's just a matter of the techies, restoring it for you. It shouldn't be too bad cost wise either.

I no longer "touch" the techie stuff when it comes to the 'puter. I learned my lesson! I hope everything comes out okay Kim.
