Hello all
I have had a bad experience and need help
Yesterday I could not boot up my computer running XP every time I pushed the start button I got NO SIGNAL on the monitor and I could not switch off or switch on after a lot of reading of the handbook I followed the instruction to press F10 while booting up.I now have the system running but completely starting from scratch nothing of my original programmes including outlook express,bookmarks and internet connection .
What has happened????
Please help

You have reset your machine back to its factory condition.

You will not be able get back anything you have done since you bought it.

If you run a disk rcovery program you MAY get back some photos and or documents but do not count on it

Hi Fruit Bat/\0/\
Not the answer I was hoping for but I am going to give it a go with Test Disc as you suggest.only what do I need to do as I cannot get on line on my computer at the moment,do I need to download the programme on to cd and if so which part of the programme do I need there seems to be a lot of sections
Thanks for your help
