|In order to help you with your display problem, you need to tell these things..|
If this is a desktop computer, tell us the make and model of the monitor you're using - the specfic model number is probably on the back of it, printed directly on it, or on a stuck on label
Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard.
The specific model of a brand name system is often shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site and loading a program they have available, if Windows is still working, on the subject computer.
If it's a Dell computer...
Go here for how to find the Service tag "number":
Tell us what it is.
If it's a HP or Compaq computer.....
Scroll down a bit.
Look for the similar label on the outside of your computer.
Quote the specific model number - that's at the end of the first line.
Quote the Product number - that's on the third line.
If it's a Lenovo computer
Find your specific Product number and tell us what it is:
Finding my product number
If it's an Acer laptop or netbook
Where is the model number located on my notebook or netbook?
Where is the serial number located on my notebook or netbook? (part two)
If it's an Acer desktop computer
Where is the model number located on my desktop?
Where is the serial number located on my desktop? (part two)
The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.
"...it isn't in the recycle bin anyway because I emptied a whole lot of unnecessary files and folders from there yesterday, so nothing is left!"
There's a possibility you deleted your camera pictures when you did that.
When you delete a file in Windows it's NOT 100% gone, at least it isn't when it's first been deleted.
When a file has been deleted in Windows, the first character in the file is flagged with a character that indicates to the operating system that the space the file occupied is available for new data - all the rest of the file is still there, until other data has been written over the space the file occupied.
If you use an un-delete program of some kind, you can recover any file whose space it occupied has not been over written yet.
However, Windows is constantly randomly over-writing such flagged drive space, even if you haven't added new data yourself. It makes temporary files every time you run Windows, many of those are deleted when you have Restarted Windows before Windows has loaded again, and the page file (swap file) data Windows uses is constantly changing and and that file is often changing it's size - that may overwrite the drive space a file was on. The less free space on the partition Windows itself was installed on, the more likely the drive space of the file you want to recover on that same partition has been overwritten by Windows.
The longer you wait after having deleted a file, the less chance you have of successfully un-deleting it.
E.g. you could get an un-delete program designed to un-delete digital pictures, and have it concentrate on ones that are *.jpg files you made with the camera.
"The photos were all numbered IMAG0001.jpg upwards to about IMAG0300.jpg "
You may or may not have gotten that right. If you still have that camera, if it has a memory card, or even if you don't have that camera but you still have one or more memory cards that were in it, the default file names of the files made by the camera will have the same first part of the file name as the ones you have deleted. E.g. IMAG*.jpg , where * = "wild card" - anything.
" ....I thought it was very large and slowing down the computer, so I uninstalled it!"
Programs that are not running CANNOT slow down Windows !
The amount of drive space a program, or any data, takes up has NO EFFECT on the performance of Windows, other than
- if the partition Windows itself was installed on has less than about 10% free space left, Window will run slower than it otherwise would - the less free space left below about 10% , the slower Windows will run.
- things programs do that examine more data , such as anti-malware scans, searches, de-fragmentation, will take longer to finish if there is more data, proportional to the amount of data.
