1. Had a prob with my PC, (Acer, swear by them normally) so... Did a back up to an external HD. Re formatted hard drive. Installed Windows 7 (previously Vista). Installed Office, etc. Tried to get my files back....no chance. All the back up files are Image files and are er.BKU. This is a format peculiar to Acer as I understand it. Acer tell me PC needs to be put back to "out of the box" state to use backup. All my work files, photos, etc. now on this bloody HD i cant get at. Need the work files, want the pics. 2. Today: PC played up, will start but nothing on the screen. My lad has been (family geek) and he reckons either the motherboard or the processor is up the swannee. Either way there is no graphics working, either from the card or on board. Anyone selling an abacus and a notepad?
