(Lost wallet) Need to reinstall Windows on PC with wallet (dead pc)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am really tripping right now. My PC's got the blue screen of death and I cant even run safe mode on it. System restore doesnt work either. I have to say goodbye to my PC which contains my CSC wallet :classic_mellow:

 

I have my 8 secret words, my password but not the private key I guess.

Is there a way to get my CSC back?

Without having the hard drive and troubleshooting, it would be hard to tell if data is recoverable.


Is this a laptop or tower?

Can you hook up the drive to another PC so you can access the data? if yes, easy play.

Good option if you can.

Are you getting any errors codes/#'s with the BSOD?

If you don't mind posting a pic here or message me the BSOD that could help.

I am getting the error code inaccessible_boot_device. Then it redirects me to the boot menu.

I have looked online for solutions but none worked so far. 

1- System restore is stuck on loading (tried for several hours)

2- Tried running system restore in safe mode, doesnt work

3- All safe modes dont work

4- Tried to type /sfc in the command prompt, it completes to 100% then says it cannot operate anything.

😓

To stay safe, do this and get the folder C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\.casinocoin once we have that we can export your secrets

The quickest thing to come to mind is this is being caused by the latest windows update to your PC. The process of fixing this is pretty scary if you are not an expert with computers.

I would do what Daniel said and connect your drive to another computer using a dock or cable: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=hard+drive+dock

You could also have someone do this for you who specializes in these types of things (data recovery).

Many thanks for your help guys. I'll go to my local tech shop and extract the data and then follow up with everything👍🏻

I have a strong feeling its due to a windows update. A couple of days ago my laptop's USB ports werent working properly and I read online it could be due to a windows update

Best to take it to a computer repair shop and have it fixed by a professional. Windows has always caused problems for me. I've lost count of the number of times I've had my laptop go wrong. Hope you can recover your CSC.

I get some kind of FUD / Fishing feeling in this thread, after reading again. I might be wrong. But it sure feels so. A member with no reputation with a naked AVATAR sorrounded by women. It feels bit strange. And the subject too. Usually my Gut feeling is correct. 85% correct. Bitflip was one of my Gut feelings.
Beware of posters now that CSC is getting Traction is my humble advice.

its difficult now a days to really know. who's to say @DanBilzerian didn't create an account here because of a CSC issue and never saw a need to be here before?

of course, you never know. maybe he's phishing to see who is computer literate for some reason to HACK OUR CSC!

is it solid state hard drive? that and.or the RAM might just need to be reseated. if you know how, open it up, unplug the SSD and RAM, press the power button. it will do nothing. plug the RAM and SSD back in and turn it on. turn it on before closing it up to see if it worked.

make an antistatic bracelet if you're paranoid.

Lol I'm certainly not trying to cause FUD. I'm a longtime lurker from before it was popular on xrpchat btw.

So I'm back from the store I got my computer. They extracted the data, uninstalled  and reinstalled windows then reimported the data. Note that I didn't talk to them about my CSC or my wallet.

 

My pc is fine now, all my desktop icons are the same and he said they guarantee that all my folders are there. I see the .casinocoin folder but they all files inside seem to be by default. Files are last modified today at 11am (about the time they called me to tell me my computer was ready).

Where do I go from here..

Now you go direct with Daniel. He will need a screenshot of that .casinocoin directory. He will ask you to send him some files. He will then be able to send you back your wallet secret provided all is ok.

I am talking directly with Daniel as we speak! thanks guys.

Unfortunately it doesn't look good for my wallet... tech guy's data extraction didn't include files in program files.. and deleted old disk. Next is trying to find back the deleted file..

Will update later
