Ok, So I am not a smart man to get that out of the way. I had a duel boot set up with fedora and windows 10. I to get more space for my windows portion so I deleted the fedora partitions using the windows portion tool. witch disabled fedora (this is not my problem). The duel boot still shows them but they don't work. I then booted fedora off a usb and deleted the first 2 portions on my hard drive. rebooted my computer and nothing showed up. other then a message that said that no os was detected. I am fairly convenient that they have not been over write. Any way for me to recover those partitions and fix my computer? If not, any way to get my files off my ntfs partition? (why you don't do destructive things well past your bed time)

I think, I know how you can fix your partitions: you can try that command in cmd.exe "bootrec.exe/fixmbr". (This PC-> search field->cmd. In cmd window type that command). You can read about that method here - Fix Your Lost or Invalid Partition Table. But I am not sure, would it chops your data as chkdsk does... So better way - recover your files first. To recover files you can use NTFS Recovery software from DiskInternals. It is cheaper than Partition Recovery, but works great))

I am sorry I can't answer your first question, but the second one:

If not, any way to get my files off my ntfs partition?

You can use any Linux Live CD/DVD to boot from an access the NTFS-partition. Another possibility is to take out the HDD and plug it in another PC or with an IDE/SATA-USB-adapter to a laptop.
