    Ok first let's check it the backups were retained.
    On the old PC - go to edit, preferences, then devices. You should see your device with its name and a backup date (hopefully).

    If an older backup was there then follow these steps to restore to the backup
    1. Plug in your device
    2. Right click the device in iTunes when it shows in the left bar under devices
    3. Click restore from backup
    4. Choose an older backup!(one that you saw from the list when you checked.

    Note this will remove all apps and music from your phone (if there is any on there) but it will and should restore contacts, calendars, notes etc.

    Good luck let us know how it turns out!
