Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Answers :

Of course....simply remove the hard drive from the computer thats experiencing problems. Look where the HDD interfaces to the system and you will see 8 pins (2 rows of 4) with a black plastic connector on two of the pins. This is called a "jumper" on the HDD it will have a diagram by these pins showing how to position the jumper for different configurations.......use configuration "slave" and then install the HDD in your new computer. When windows loads it will recognize the HDD from your old system as an additional drive and allow you to access any and all files on that drive. GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!! :D
