Hello everyone. I just had someone put in a new motherboard in my computer as the other one apparently was fried. I paid $150 for all the work and now when I turn my computer on, I can't find any of my old files, pictures, songs, anything. Can anyone help me with this? I would greatly appreciate it. I don't care about anything being lost except the pictures. I have a 2 year old and all of his pictures were on my computer. I want to atleast find them and transfer them to a portable hard drive if possible. Some one please help. My email address is the following for any additional off site help:

Sounds like whoever replaced your motherboard may have reformatted your computer, in which case all the information will be permanently lost. Ask the tech shop if they have reformatted the computer. Assuming this is true, there are data retrieval options, but they'd likely cost FAR more then what you are willing to spend to retrieve the data.
Sorry to be a bear of bad news :)
