Acer Aspire T180 with Vista and Hard drive not accessible

\015 Hi, my pc shows the window "System Recovery Options" as soon as it starts with a problem with the hard drive drivers. Is there a way to connect a usb cable and access the hard drive from another pc and transfer all the data?\015\012\015\012Many thanks\015\012\015\012Victor\015

Answers :

Hi, thanks... so your suggestion is to get the HD out of the present system and plug it into a drive caddy and access the drive from another system to backup all the data. Then plug back the HD into the original system and re-install the original system?

Won't Boot I have an Acer Aspire 5050 running Vista and it has decided not to boot anymore. It will try to boot and then I get the black screen.

I went to the BIOS and set the default values and it still doesn't work. I do know that it does not have anitvirus protection. My guess is that it has a virus but not really sure. Any suggestions?
