Answers :

An external drive would be a possible solution. You could also buy a new internal drive (be sure it is the same interface), buy a 2.5" external usb case, and mirror the data over to the new one. You could then install the new drive into the computer, put the old one in the external case and either use it as a backup or an external drive.

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. The fan will run for a minute or so and then it will quit. It will then try to boot again going through the same process over and over. 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?
