Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

I got hung up with a website this morning and had to unplug my computer to unfreeze it. When it came back on, the icons and print was enlarged. I wasn't able to bring back the proper size, so I did a system recovery (not a former date), and now all my games, printer, etc. are gone. Can you help?


Answers :

Well, if you did a system recovery, you reformatted your hard drive. Now you have lost all your data (unless the recovery gave you an option to save a copy).
You will have to reinstall everything.
Hint: NEVER do a system recovery unless it's a last resort. Hint #2: Always perform regular backups of your data.
