now what?

So...my computer was shutting itself off, then not able to complete a restart. So the suggestion it gave me was to do a system restore. And it assured me that no data would be lost. Hmm. Then where are all of my pictures from the last year? That did cause it to boot up but only stayed on for about an hour. Then gone again*. Which figures, it's about 3 months out of the extended warranty and it is an HP, after all.

So, I'm gratefully accepting any and all suggestions except:
Never buy HP again (already all over that one)
Back up photos more often (yep, I know to do it, I just sometimes don't get around to it)
Crumple up in a heap on the floor and cry (if I do this I may not get up and there's a lot to do around here)

*I'm writing this on Larry's laptop.

Oh no! Maybe there's some way someone can restore the pics? And I am going to try to find time to back mine up today since you mentioned it; it's been a while for us.

Oh, and if you can swing the price, Macs are awesome!

I have used macs before (for work) and I just didn't like the way they worked. I'm sure I would get used to it but...I'm not ready.

I heard an ad on the radio the other day for a company that retrieves lost data on your computer. Maybe? I know next to nothing about computers, so ignore that comment if it doesn't make any sense. And I wonder if that service is expensive...
