Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I recently bought an acer pc and installed several cd's and downloaded music. today I turned on my pc and everything is gone. I tried searching for them and I also noticed that my email was gone and had a new message from windows about initial set up. I did not reinstall vista or anything and my programs are still there. So I have no clue what caused this to happen. Help!!


Answers :

Did your clock stop for a period of time.
if so you may need a new CMOS battery on your motherboard.
This battery is a flat battery that is the size of a nickel. It keeps information fro being deleted when the computer is turned off. It saves the CMOS settings in windows.
But it won;t delete files
However, your computer will act up and lose info to make it run right.
