Probably something somewhere got corrupted, that was what used to happen on the dial up connections. I remember somebody exclaiming they were the only person to use the computer but that doesn't stop it becoming corrupted, just one of those things

It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Helpdesk: Did the keyboard come with you?

A customer couldn't get on the internet.

Old woman: I was working in Word and clicked the help button more than 4
hours ago. Can you tell me when you will finally be helping me?
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Helpdesk: How may I help you?
Customer: I'm writing my first e-mail.
Helpdesk: OK, and, what seems to be the problem?
Customer: Well, I have the letter a, but how do I get the circle around it?

help needed in recovering data

Postby ptsy » Wed, 31 Aug 2005 5:42 pm

Hi banana,

You seem like a pro and a helpful one too!

My PC crashed recently and I had the hard disk replaced. The PC's now working fine. My problem is the computer guy told me that there's no way I could recover any data in my old hard disk.

I am still holding on to the old hard disk, praying and hoping that someone (perhaps you) would come along and help me solve this problem.

Appreciate your reply.
