I purchased 1gh/s in USB ASIC miners a while back just to try mining BTC for a bit.
My buddies showed me what to do and I listened and followed. I downloaded a wallet (Electrum Wallet) and started to mine! However, my low gh/s made me not check my wallet for a while... which was a mistake apparently. I tried opening it recently and it won't open anymore!

I asked my friend about it, he told me to copy a file in the hidden folders to back it up and uninstall/reinstall. And I did that.. still no luck. I still have my SEED (random senetence thing) i downloaded it on another computer and the program would open, but would not accept my SEED.
I then moved my file from the hidden folder and put it on my laptop on the fresh E.WAllet... and no luck, the samething happened, the program would not open.

Any suggestions?

If you have your seed properly backed up and well written with no mistake, you can always restore from it and get all working again.

If you didn't write it correctly and the wallet file is corrupted, then you have less options.
