Replaced PST. How to recover?

Q: Replaced PST. How to recover?

Hello everyone, I am in urgent need of your help. While making a copy paste from a users profile, a friend of mina accidentally replaced the .pst of my Outlook. Now, I've lost all e-mails from the day the old .pst was recorded, ultil today. Is there any tool that can recover the replaced .pst? I already looked for something to solve this situation on the Internet but I only find recovery tools for deleted messages or corrupted .pst, which is not the situation here. Can you help?

Not to my knowledge either, as you have also found.

As the .pst file hold all emails and attachments, contacts etc it is a high priority for backing up. I do mine daily just in case...

I replaced the crashed hard drive and im now getting this message, No bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key. Please help me i dont have any idea what to do? 

A:Replaced HD,want to up grade IOS and do not have any recover...

Hi: You're getting that message because there is no operating system installed on the hard drive you replaced. You would have to order recovery disks for your model (if they are available from a 3rd party vendor) and they are only for Windows Vista. Do you have the 1245dx, ca, ef or eo model? Otherwise you would have to purchase a full retail or OEM version of W7.

Lenovo laptop G580I have created a Windows 10 recovery onto to a USB stick.I have replaced my faulty hard drive, but now I can't recover windows to the replacment hard drive.When starting up with the new hard drive installed I get the blue screen with "Choose Language Option"After choosing language I get the Troubleshoot or Turn off  optionWhen choosing the Troubleshoot option, I only get the optionsSystem Restore - use a restore point recorded on your PC to restore WindowsSystem Image Recovery - recover Windows using a specific system image fileI am not seeing the option Recover from a Drive, which should be there, I believe, from various Internet messages and posts I've seen Can anyone hlep please to get my laptop back up and running Windows 10 ? Geoff

A:Can't recover Windows 10 on to replaced hard disk

If you are not getting the Recover from Drive option, you must have missed selecting the option to "Backup system files to the recovery drive" when creating the Recovery drive, so you will have to download and create Windows 10 Installation Media to reinstall Windows 10 to you laptop.     Download Windows 10https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 When you get to the point where it asks for a Product Key, select the to skip  (or I do not have a key) option and Windows will automatically activate upon completion of the installation.  Unfortunately you will be starting clean, so any data will have to be restored from backup, and applications will have to be reinstalled.  FYI, If you do no have your data backed up, with luck you may still be able to recover it from the old drive if it just failed to boot from the drive, by mounting the drive into an external 2.5 inch USB enclosure, and copying off the the c:\users\<username> folders to your new HD.  Cheers,

A routine hardware scan found errors in the hard drive and the motherboard, so I contacted Lenovo support.  They had a technician come to my house and replace the parts, then started the recovery DVDs to get the system running again.  However it failed to install!  He called Lenovo service and tried several things to get it installed, to no avail.   They sent me a new set of six recovery discs, but these have now also failed.  I contacted support again and they tried to help me through several boot options to get it to work, but nothing has worked.  They have "escalated my case to the Customer Relations Office" so they can resolve my issue, but I am now worried that this is going to drag on for a very long time.   Does anyone else have suggestions about how to resolve this issue?  Could my upgrade to Windows 10 be complicating this?

My monitor goes black and I am forced to reboot. After rebooting I get a blue screen prompt telling me that i've recovered from a BSOD. I've been monitoring them since October.

In October, I RMA'd my graphics card. Oct 27. You can see that after I got a new GPU, my BSOD's halted... so obviously its the GPU right? if you look at my BSOD dumps the last one is OCT 27, new gpu, and i don't get one until Feb 7.

So on Feb 7 I call up eVGA again and say, ok so my GPU is bad again and I wonder if its something im doing to kill them.

So I am going to get a second RMA and the tech tells me that they received my first card and they ran it for over a hour in a diagnostic app and didn't have a single problem... aka my card was fine...

so i explain my BSOD issues and the tech tells me that it may be a voltage issue and that it may be my power supply... soooooooooo

I goto Tiger Direct down the street and buy a "whatever i can get" thats over 1000 watts supply because I have a 850 watt PSU and obviously its not enough power so i go big... and guess what... My last BSOD dump before the PSU is 3/18 March 18. So new PSU and I don't get a single BSOD until 6/14/2014.

So I have attached "All" of my dumps and all my info with the issues.


My problem is... if its "not" my GPU, why did getting a new one give me no BSOD for 3 months.

A:BSOD 0x116 (stop error) Replaced GPU, replaced RAM, replaced PSU

Hi Zuriel.

I read your OP. I would suggest you to have an open mind; and dont decide that it is not it. Because during troubleshooting you have to get everything tested.

The BSOD is a stop 0x116. That is an error from the part of the display environment. That means ....
The GPU itself
The display driver
The PSU
The system temps and dust allocation inside the computer
The hardware parts like GPU fans
Overclocking failure
And etc. I would suggest you to go through a thorough troubleshooting, whatever may be the idea you may have about those.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU, 850 watts you said) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

I have a HTII 713 luggable PC that will not power on. When this problem first started, you would hit the power switch and the power would "stutter" but not come on or make it to post. I upgraded the power supply. It originally had a 460W PSU and I upgraded to an Antec 650W PSU hoping that would cure my ills. Still displaying the same symptoms. I got an exact replacement Intel motherboard (Intel DP965LT) and swapped it out.

Now I get power lights, but no fans, or hard drives spinning up. When I hit the power, the case fans and PSU fan will move just a tick but not spin and this only happens the first time I hit the power switch. I have to wait about a minute or so and try again to get this to even do this much. I've triple checked the power connections and mobo connections.

Any ideas?

Hi all, a while ago I had the idea to start from scratch to clean up the system and gain more performance. But I have not done yet because I have some doubts.


On the PC I have Acronis True Image Home 2011
--> In the part where it says My backups I see the image that I have saved.
--> When I click on "Explore and recover" :To the right I see 2 items to recover: "Reserved for System and Local Disk (C)"
Therefore, the partition (D)will remain intact. Right ? But if I want to restore everything, both partitions, i have to use the option "Files and folders" ?

Extra info : I did not create the image, other person is who created it :P

A:Difference between recover partitions or recover files and folders.

How long ago was that Acronis image made?

I guess I don't understand your intent. You talk about starting over to clean up and gain more performance, but then express interest in restoring "everything".

Was that image made at a time when your system was running perfectly? How has your system changed since that date? If you restore, you will have to reinstall any applications you've acquired since the image was made. And that image won't contain any personal data acquired since it was made. Maybe it contains no personal data at all?
If you are going to "start from scratch", I assume you mean you want to do a clean install of Windows.

If you were to do that, the only thing in that image file that might possibly be important to you would be personal files---pictures, videos, mp3s, Word documents, browser bookmarks, possibly email, etc. And that would be personal files as of the date of that image, not your current personal files. And not Windows itself.

If I wanted to "start over", I would:

1: back up all current personal files to some other drive, probably external. I would NOT use an image for this. I'd just copy them with the mouse.

2: reinstall Windows.

If I did those 2 things, the contents of the Acronis image would be irrelevant.

You should forget about Acronis if you don't understand it or know whats in any images you have. Particularly if you didn't make the image yourself. Images can fail you anyway. I'd never rely on them exclusi... Read more

I had the thread CPU usage @ 10 0%. Although it is marked solved I never did figure out so I tried something else. I bought a faster CPU. Motherboard in computer is AMD AM37 Salsa with a 2000+ CPU and 1048 RAM . After lon, long searching I found that this board would support up to a 3200+ CPU. I ordered a 3000+ CPU and removed original then installed new. Powered up tower, PSU fan started, CPU fan started, but thats all. Floppy did not make normal startup self check and screen power button light changed from yellow to green showing it was getting signal, but all that light up on screen was a small 1/4 inch white blinking rectangle upper right corner. Thinking I might have screwed up new CPU I took it back out and reinstalled original 2000+ CPU and now it won't work either. Same exact problem. The place I bought the 3000+ new CPU checked it and said I did not screw it up. It's OK. Now my question. Is there something I needed to do to the settings, BIOS, or what ever of the motherboard to make the computer recconnize or hard drive reconnize the change in CPU? Acts like motherbord is no working to load up anything.

Awhile back my computer started issuing one long beep instead of booting. Nothing would come on screen, it just beeped.

So I was told that long beeps mean memory errors. I switched out the ram but it did no good. I switched out the video card,motherboard and powersupply for good measure, but the damn thing is still beepiong at me.Considering that the Hard Drive and DVD/DVDRW/Floppy Disk should not affect the boot process at all, I have to assume that it's my processor.

However, I wanted to make sure that there wasn't something I was forgetting before I plop down money for a new processor.Could it be anything else?

This is going to be a little long but any help would be great. I am trying to fix a AMD Duron 650 machine that died a little while back. My brother was on vacation and when he came home is computer was turned off and would not restart. When I opened the case, the heatsink was filled with dust. I used a can of compressed air to remove all of the dust from the case and heatsink. The computer still would not turn on (not a surprise to me). I figured "well, the processor probably couldn't cool thus it overheated (no burn marks on processor)". After purchasing a used Duron 800 chip and plugging it back in (with new thermal grease) I still got nothing. Back to the store and picked up a motherboard. Plugged it all back in and still nothing fan would spin and stop. So, next what's left of course... PSU. I bought a brand new AMD 350w PSU came home and installed it. Reset CMOS, and pushed power, what do I get ... nothing!!!! I think if I can remember right the processor fan would spin but nothing else. No video, no beeps.

First, I must say that I have never taken one of that model apart.  I am just looking at the service manual.  It looks to me that the charging port is soldered to the motherboard, as you were told.  Sometimes, if you look at the port, you can figure out that it is similar to one on another model and if you can find a damaged motherboard with a good port, you can do an "organ transplant".  Very few shops do that kind of repair.  The shop would need to have a good rework station, the port and spend the time to disassemble and reassemble.  The repair might not be cheaper than the motherboard, but I cannot be sure without examining it.  Sorry.

Netsters replace IE with Firefox

Dear Lord ....

p2pnet.net News:- "Security concerns prompt Internet Explorer defections"

That's current a Google headline (7:08 Pacific) based on a Reuters report in Indian Express, and Firefox biting off Microsoft's browser market, says the Chinese state news agency, Xinhua.

Even more to the point, The Fox is in Microsoft’s henhouse (and salivating), says ABS CBN News in the Philippines.

In other words, it's Firefox up, IE, down. And the whole world is paying attention.

Brtiain's PC World has IE Continues to Lose Grip on Market and its report states:

"Between the beginning of December and mid-January, IE's market share dropped 1.5 percent to 90.3 percent, while the Mozilla Project's Firefox browser rose 0.9 percent to a total of 5.0 percent, according to market researcher WebSideStory. Researchers have shown Explorer's market share falling since June, when WebSideStory had its market share at 95.5 percent.

"Other browsers, including Opera and Apple Computer's Mac-only Safari, also gained just under 1.0 percent to 2.1 percent, WebSideStory said."

Is Microsoft listening to Chicken Little and will we soon see amazing new IE developments as Bill and the Boyz try to shore up their browser?

Stay tuned.

It was like that for 3 days until now when I turned on my laptop and a strange screen appeared saying something is wrong with my battery and it may need replaced. I know batteries eventually die but I don't use my laptop often, and have only had it for a year. I can only use it when it is plugged in, and it says, "plugged in but not charging".

My computer recently stopped wanting to turn on recently so i bought a new power supply but that wasnt the problem. So i did the whole putting the motherboard on top of cardboard and troubleshooting. What happened was i turned the pc on then the 6 pin slots on the graphics card basicly threw sparks and smoke came out so basicly convinced my motherboard was taken out, i tried it without the graphics card. What happens is the cpu fan powers on and stays on running pretty loud. So after i reseated the graphics card but didnt connect the 6 pins and the cpu fan and the gpu fan just runs loudly also without stopping. Now obviously since my graphics card cant even boot up the screen since its broken i want to know if theres a way to find out if anything else is broken or if thats a sign of the motherboard still working fine. What i also saw was when connecting the 6 pin slots on the graphic card the computer wont start the fans on.
 

A:Need help finding out what needs to be replaced

Well, I dont know if processors can be changed. i currently have a celeron d processors at 2.93 Ghz but i would love to have a pentium 4. Do i necessarily need to buy a new motherboard in order to get a new processor? Or can they just be poped out and changed as long as the motherboard supports a p4? here is my motherboard right now

http://www.asrock.com/product/product_775vm8.htm

well. i just really would love to get rid of the celeron, i can't say its a bad processor, I say its highly underated cuz its actually pretty decent. well I still would like a p4 seeing as they are faster and more powerful so can processors be changed? and if they can can my motherboard support a p4, i know my motherboard support ht tech by the way, it said on the manual.

My sons XP operating system quit. I slaved his hard drive to my XP system to recover files. Now the back slash on my system has been replaced by a W with a line through it. Virus checks revealed nothing. Everthing seems to operate normally. It's more anoying than anything else. Does anyone have a fix for this?

Thank you

A:/ replaced by W with a line through it

I had a hunch that your keyboard language settings might be altered. I had to find out what language the w with a horizontal bar across it was though. I found it here
http://user.services.openoffice.org/...t=14380#p67430
it's korean! (says it's the "won" symbol, which I think is the currency)
Anyway, go to control panel, regional and language options. Under language, details, set the language to whatever keyboard layout you're using.

I just replaced my motherboard ( that died) with a ASROCK K7VM3, I have not change and of the jumpers on the drives I hooked the all up the way they were when I took the MOBO out, and It will not find anything. Primary, Secondary, CD, or the A drive. The fan works and you can tell that it is up and running now, but it is not finding any thing . Is there something ( in the setup) that I am suppose to do? I thought it was pretty much all plug and play.. Thanks in advance
 

A:I replaced my motherboard, now what?

I thought it was pretty much all plug and playClick to expand...

A couple weeks ago my motherboard suddenly stopped working overnight. (I tested all of my other components with another (similar) computer and everything else was working fine.) I just finally got around to replacing the motherboard with an identical one. However, when it boots up it prompts me to select from Safe Mode/Last Known.../Star Windows Normally/etc.. If I choose Start Windows normally, it just freezes and nothing happens. If I choose Last Known Good Configuration, the screen turns all black and nothing happens. And if I choose one of the Safe Mode options, a list of filenames (I think) fill up the screen and then nothing happens.

The computer I used to test my parts also uses the exact same kind of motherboard, and I had no problem using my hard drive with that. Any thoughts? And thank you very much in advance.

Just a few weeks before its first anniversary, my P50's FHD LCD started showing a yellow color near the bottom of the screen:   This is a known issue with some LCD screens, that occurs when some of the layers separate inside the panel. There's no software solution, of course, and the panel needs to be replaced. I opened a ticket with my IT department and within three days the screen was replaced under warranty. This is the new screen: The phone photos are pretty bad but you get the picture. I couldn't get the manufacturer's names (old and new). Without any adjustments, though, the new screen looks brighter and with better color reproduction, when compared to the same external monitor, than the old one. Which lets me to believe that the old screen was trash. Sad. D.A.V.

Hello!

I'm hoping someone can help.

My parents have a pretty basic emachines PC. The other day it was switched off for the first time in months! Now it won't power up at all, not even a standby light.

I did a little 'research'. From what I read, I gathered the issue could have been a failed PSU. (I am quite certain that it's not the power cables or socket or anything like that). I bought a new PSU and installed it but still no joy.

Is it likely that the motherboard has been wrecked?

If so, am I right in thinking that it's just aswell to get rid and buy a new PC?

Many thanks for any advice.

Sweet x

Hi there

NO WAY will tablets etc take over PC's -- I've just been messing around with some Video files -- not too large -- and even on a 16GB QUAD 3.2 GHZ processor video conversions and DVD burning take a LONG LONG TIME - even paralleling up for using all 4 cores -- no way on this or any other planet in the universe would a tablet be capable of performing these sorts of tasks in any sensible timeframe whatsoever.

(It might complete ONE project in time for YEAR 3000 left running 24 hrs a day (Y3K - where I suppose people will be wondering why their leap year stuff is broken !!!!!).

Tablets may have their uses but not for these sorts of tasks in any shape or form - I could really do with an 8 Core I7 (if there is such an animal).

Cheers
jimbo

A:No way will PC's die and be replaced by tablets

Yeah, PC's will always be around for these type of tasks. But the average computer user is doing far less or stuff like that these days....hence the reason that tablets are becoming the norm.

Hi all

Back again with an update to the HUB/Switch swap.

HOLY COW batman. What an amazing difference. The speed is unreal. Also the footprint is a lot smaller as well. But I do have one annoying prob.

I have 14 comp on this network and on the HUB they all work fine. But when I switched to the Switch...there are 2 computers that don't work at all on the net. The server can see them but can't access the files or anything. But on the computers with the prob they can't even see the workgroup. What's up wit dat? The 2 computers in question are a brand new Dell P4 w/DLink NIC running XP and the other is a Dell PIII with 3Com NIC running Win98SE.

Could it be a wiring hitch? I mean if a wire is snagged or kinked or whatever...could it work on a HUB and not a Switch? What about taking out the NICS and resitting them?

Any insight to this prob would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Todd

Hi

Before the PSU failed completely the PC was running slow, it would take ages to boot up but would eventually get there. Once it loaded some programs run fine but some were very slow. For example it would take a while to launch firefox but once it was running the web and relative speed seemed fine.

The PSU eventually failed completey so I have replaced it and now it boots up as it should but is still slow.

I have two HDD's both partitioned. The C drive and the F drive are on the old disk and the Y and the Z are on the newer one.

I took the c/f drive out and run it in as an external hard drive on my laptop and it was fine, i could browse through large jpegs no problems and it was much quicker than when installed in the desk top. The C drive is mainly program files and the f drive is documents etc.

I have run spyware docotor , ad aware, reg mechanic etc and it all seems fine I have inclueded the HJT log below but from my little knowledge it seems ok, I would appreciate your thoughts though.

chk dsk is fine too.

I don't know what to do now, I have disabled the start up progs that aren't necessary etc etc and seem to have tried all the common fixes and have now hit the wall. It just isn't as fast as it used to be and we did do a complete reinstall of windows xp several months ago.

The one thing that might be a problem but I'm not sure is that when I put the new HDD in the information about the pin configuration for master slave etc was a bit amb... Read more

My old motherboard stopped working, so while it's getting repaired, I decided to swap it with another one (different model). The problem is, Windows 7 won't boot anymore. I get a blue screen of death and the system keeps rebooting. Now I know replacing a motherboard with an old install is not a good idea, but I really need the files and programs I have on my hard drive. I don't want to do a fresh install either because I'll be putting back my old board once it's repaired. I tried a "automatic repair", but with no success. Am I out of options? The old board is an ASUS M4A78-PLUS and the new one is an ASUS M2N68-AM.

Any suggestion?

Are the BIOS settings on the new MB "in agreement" with the old MB BIOS?

If you ever get to a Win7 Boot Manager screen, run the Memory Diagnostics.
