Having problems with your Gateway M360X Notebook ?

Hitting the F11 key by mistake when booting up

\015 When booting on today my granddaughter hit the F11 key and I lost all my files. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Try this.
\015\012Press F8 key (several times) as you boot up.
\015\012Then select Last Known Good Configuration
\015\012Hopefully you can then see your files.
\015\012If you can then back them up, you should do this regularly in case the hard disk fails.
Data recovery!!! its the only way, you have to send the hard drive away and its expensive, sorry

Kind regards
