Long story short.... lost emails thru a system recovery . Hubby took my PC to a shop to fix problems with it and the guy did a recovery, never had a chance to back up my stuff(photos and paintings) and especially my important emails... I am so angry... and upset. I am using my laptop at the moment. I have my PC back but I am too upset to even use it now . I have to reinstall every thing I had on there and remove stuff I do not want.

so sorry ladies. i have been there. i have learned:
i never store email on my puter any more due to crashes and such. i have AOL (save to AOL NOT puter and you can read your email anywhere and it won't get lost, i have email saved on there for years) and a YAHOO (same thing). i have a folder on my desktop i call Backup Files, i put everything i want to keep safe in there. then i use an app called SyncToy and i sync (backup) this folder at least once a week to a second drive on my personal network. if you don't have a second hard drive try a external means like maybe a cd or dvd-RW disc or a flash drive. i have been using synctoy for many years now and i love it. in researching a link to post here i found a newer version (2.0 below) and i am going to download it now. it works on XP or Vista (i have both OS's 1 puter XP, 1 laptop XP, 1 laptop Vista and it works great). i hope this may solve some of the tears due to the "heartbreak of the crash". muahhhhhhhhh

Download SycToy here

So far no real crash for me..I am just one of those people who hate to wait..This thing drives me round the bend at times..I leave it one at night and when I go to get one the screen is black and I wait and wait for it to go way!! By the time it does I want to take a hammer to it..
Other times i'm fine with it..just depends what type of day i've had

ahaaaaaaaaa maybe if you do (1 of each) a disk cleanup, scan disk and defrag will solve that.

Your computer might be going into the hibernation mode. Mine came from the factory set to hibernate after so many minutes of inactivity. I re-set mine to "never hibernate," and that problem went away. I hated it with a passion.

hmmmmmmmmmmmm that may be the problem. i don't have mine on hibernate and i get the black screen sometimes, usually the screensaver is messing up on mine (so i do maintenance and it is fixed). if you have a vista never delete the hibernation files when you do a disk cleanup. when i first got my vista i would dump those files and it caused me problems.

I do back up files but hubby took the pc before I could back it up. I don't use AOL and I do have external drives and do back up to that as well as to dvd.
