    Did all that and NOTHING WORKED.
    Got all the same problems everyone else got.
    The only thing I think I got was a virus out of the whole deal.
    Anything that was in picture format is 100% unrecoverable and fucked.
    Followed this guide 17 times and not a god damn thing changed.
    You have to buy police software online Legally to be able to recover
    anything that made it into the desktop bin I think.
    Who the fuck knows.
    All I know is this shit didn’t work.

    I assume yours is an HP computer, if that’s the case, go to and enter your computer model/serial number and download the appropriate driver.

    The drivers can also be found in swsetup within the windows.old directory, the only problem is that it doesn’t tell you which driver is which, but you can try executing one driver at a time and see if you can find the one you’re looking for.
