I don't have the original laptop my iphone was set up on. I have backed up all my data on icloud. If I sync with my new laptop and erase all my contents(restore to factory settings), can I then get it all from icloud?

I don't have the original laptop my iphone was set up on. I have backed up all my data on icloud. If I sync with my new laptop and erase all my contents(restore to factory settings), can I then get it all from icloud?

I have the same problem as the emails go to my iCloud account that I cannot access!!! I cannot answer the security questions as someone else must have set up my iCloud account. Nothing seems to work. It would be great if someone has some ideas as what can be done to recover the situation?

  • HT1296 If I reset my ipad to factory settings, can I then get all my stuff back on to my ipad by syncing? or do i need to restore from a backup?

    I have forgotten my passcode for restrictions.  I tried to reset to factory settings and then restore from a backup; apparently my old passcode is part of that back up.  I'm told i need to reset to factory settings to remove the old passcode. but how do I get my stuff back if I can't restore it?
    Please help, someone!
    thanks.

My iPOD appears in My Computer in drive H as a mass storage generick volume

    Try disabilng the Enable Disk Use option from under the iPod's Summary tab, applying the changes, and seeing if that helps.
    Otherwise, temporarily disabling any antivirus, security, firewall, or file indexing software that may be running on your system and then try restoring your iPod again.

    my PC has been restored to factory settings, can i sync my music on my ipod with a newly downloaded itunes

    You'll want to copy the music from your iPod to your computer and into iTunes first.  See this older post from another forum member Zevoneer covering some of the different methods and software available to assist you with this task.  Once you have successfully copied all your content back to your PC and into iTunes, you can safely Erase and Sync your iPod.

    Thanks

    have you backed up in the past with iTunes or iCloud? If so, it is possible that you will not lose this information, but I cannot guarantee anything.
    Check for backups in iTunes by going to Preferences > Devices > Device backups
    If you do not see any, and your iPad is still in working order, check for iCloud backups in Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup
    Also, if your iPad is still in working order, you can backup with itunes before restoring : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766

  • My iPhone is synced to an old computer, how do I get it synced with my new one and not lose all the music?

    I recently had to rebuild my hard drive. When I try to sync my iPhone, the iTunes app won't recognize the phone and gives me the option of erasing the content on the phone and syncing to the library that it currently has. I don't want to lose the content on the phone but I do want to add content from the current library. Any suggestions? Or am I screwed?

    Two options available to you.
    Option 1:  If the computer your previous sync is available then you can do itunes home sharing.  Transfer the files and then sync to the new computer.  Setting up home sharing http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4620
    Option 2:  If the computer you were previously syncing with isn't available AND you purchased the music via itunes you can transfer the purchases.  Transfering purchases http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2554

  • How to change the apple ID your iphone was set up with?

    Yesterday, I wanted to put all my music (200) songs on my iphone. Yes, there is enough space and everything. but when i pulled it in, it said i had to restore my iphone. So i quickly downloaded all my photos to my laptop and restored it. Then my phone has the IOS 7 "Hello" page and i slid and picked my language and country and then it asked for my apple id and password...
    I don't remember either. I gave me a clue. ([email protected]) but i am pretty sure if i had an account at yahoo, i deleted it. (my yahoo answers account is my gmail account) I have tried every combination that i thought it could be for my password and apple id and i have no idea. I have searched my gmail for some answers but no, nothing.
    And now all my contacts are lost and i cant use my phone at all.
    So, How do I get it so i can change the Apple iD that was set up with my iphone?
    PLEASE HELP! I NEED TO SAVE MY PHONEEEEE.

    Well, you've got a huge problem on your hand if you can't remember the Apple ID/Password that was originally used to activate this phone. This is called Activation Lock, & there is no way around it, & Apple will not help you. If you can't remember this info, you won't be able to reactivate the phone.

  • What happens to VPN , Wifi settings and Email accounts on iPad if synced with a new computer and itunes account?

    I have an Ipad with VPN,Wifi connections and email accounts already created . Now I want to sync it with another computer using a new account as this device is to be given to someone else. I want to know what will happen to the settings already made as I do not want them to change ?. Deletion of Apps and other media files is ok but the settings like VPN,Email account and Wi Fi shoudl not be reset.

    Wickedweapon-
    Pre-installed Apps such as Mail, Camera, Photo Booth, Notes, et cetera, are kept.  Any iOS updates are retained.  Otherwise, the iPad is returned to its factory default settings.
    If you planned to sell an iPad, you might go ahead and do the reset manually.  Go to Settings-General-Reset-Erase All Content and Settings.  Doing this would ensure that any sensitive personal data is erased.

  • My Ipod wont sync with my new library and I dont know why not. It will show that it is connected through home sharing, but it is only avalible when i am with my laptop! I dont know how to get this current library as mine on my ipod, help!

    My ipod will not sync with my laptop. I have had previous Ipods in the past, but since then I have grown out of most of my music. Also about a year and a half ago I got a new laptop. I used the same Itunes name, but now on my new Ipod it has all of my old music and it refuses to download any of my new music. When I am using home sharing though, it says that I can turn on my "Library" but that my "music" is what is perminately on the computer. This only works though if I am near my laptop. When I try to transfer my library onto my ipod it wont let me. My music on my ipod is completely different than my normal itunes library on my computer and I have no idea how to transfer it. When I plug it in, it wont sync at all, or show that there is any device even plugged in. I am frustrated and tired of not having any  of my music, so someone please help!!!

    You can only sync to one computer/iTunes library. To make this your syncing computer:

  • HT201210 Iphone 4s connected to laptop for update, but won't complete...in recovery mode...says if I restore will loose media. Want to do a app transfer, but won't allow, Have things I do not want to loose if I restore to factory settings.

    Hi! I have connected my 4S to laptop to do software update, but it did not complete. says that phone is in restore mode and that if i continue restore to factory settings, i will loose all data. I have apps and media that I did not transfer but I don't seem to be able to get back and do this. Can anyone help?

    Your data in your iPhone is losing in recovery mode, and it is hard to restore.
    It is difficult to say it can recover all your data, but you can only have a try. That is a third iPhone data recovery software.

  • LogonUI.ex​e bad image - authui.dll error. Cant system restore or restore to factory settings

    Hi,
    My notebook which is a HP pavilion dm4 beats edition computer which runs WIndows 7 home premium, was just bought 2 months and I've been using it just for 2 months.
    Yesterday morning it was working fine, and I didnt download any new software or do any changes but in the evening when i turned it on,
    after the 'starting windows' screen, it was this error message
    LogonUI.exe - Bad Image
    C:\Windows\system32\authui.dll is either not designed  to run on Windows or it contains an error.  Try installing the program again  using the original installation media or contact your system administrator the  software vendor for support.
    I tried safe mode, it goes back to the same error screen.
    When i try pressing f8 and go to 'last known good configuration' it goes to the error screen as well.
    I tried pressing f8 and going to HP recovery manager and selecting system restore but it says no system restore points have been created, when I try to create one or go forward, it says the computer is running in a limited state and its not possible.
    The option 'restore to factory settings' can not be selected, I dont know why. The cursor does not change colour of the option when it goes above it, and that option cant be selected.
    My recovery partition is there and I have not done any adjustments to it.
    The only thing that opens is a command prompt window, could you assist me on how to restore to factory settings through this? Because typing rstui.exe brings the same message saying no restore points have been created.

    I cant chose system recovery, the option cant be selected.
    When I can go onto command prompt after going to 'advanced boot options' but then typing sfc /scannow says the computer needs a reboot, once you reboot, its just the same thing.
    Normally starting windows or starting windows in safe mode gives the LogoUI.exe bad image error just before when I would normally scan my fingerprint or enter the password.
    I tried putting in a windows cd, but it wont let it 'repair the computer' but trying to reinstall windows, no hard disks are visible. Its like I dont have a hard drive.
    But you can go to command prompt and go into dir you can view all my files. But just searching for C, it says directory of C was not found.
    Its just really strange because the laptop worked fine in the morning, and in the evening, as soon as I turned it on, it was just this black screen and an error msg
