Answers :

Here is what you need. Go to a computer retail shop or get it online. You need an IDE / sata USB adapter cable. Here is what it does....you take the hard drive out of the damaged computer and attach the adapter to it, the other end is a USB plug that attaches to tyour good computer. Your good computer will read the drive on the usb cable and treat it as an external hard drive that you can copy and paste till your heart's content. The adapter dell for around 20-35 bucks. It is the safest way to transfer all your documents, favorites, nusic, Etc from the old system.
I don't know what the initial problem was with your pc but here's the best advice I can give you.
\015\012If the operating system on your old pc will not load, or the pc itself has a hardware failure, you can get your data off of it by using the new pc to do so.
\015\012Turn on the new pc and double click on the My Computer icon so you can see the drives and drive letters available to you with the new system. Either memorize or write down what drives are displayed along with a description of the drive and its drive letter.
\015\012There are 2 ways you can get your data off of the old drive as long as it doesn't have serious disk errors.
\015\012The first method is to take the hard drive out of the old pc and put it into the new one and connect the data and power cables.
\015\012The second method is to buy a USB adapter that matches the data interface of the old drive. Ex. EIDE to USB or SATA to USB. You then connect the adapter to the old hard drive and plug the other end of the adapter into a USB port on the new pc.
\015\012In either case, the old drive should appear in My Computer and you can copy the data you need to the new pc.
