Have you tried using an external monitor to make sure the video is working on the new motherboard?

I am not an expert in such things but I think if you use a widely available adaptor that will power the old hard drive and provide usb connectivity your Windows 7 should be able to read and allow you to move files, as long as the old drive and the WIN 7 are both 32 BIT (or 64)...

Bad memory stick, possibly. Or maybe bad motherboard. try different memory, and try swapping to different slots.

Win10 should auto-detect it; so it should need a driver from it manufacture.
Assuming the monitor is properly functioning, and if you are still having problems:
1) Use the most up-to-date connection such as HDMI, DVI, or Display Port
2) Then with the monitor connected, force a Windows update.
3) Make sure the display adapter's resolution matches one of the monitor's supported resolutions.

Hi,

Try the drive on other usb ports first.
Listen for the windows "Beeps" when you plug it in or take it out. If the beeps are heard then you need to go into Disk Management and assign drive letters to the partitions

hi
the cable is ok, because i already replaced it, the cable is new....
i think it's some kind of driver issue, but the driver on IBM site just won't work.

Download and use this driver instead, EPSON TM-88II Printer Driver, 4.00.

Good luck.

Use generic text driver - go for LPT (default port) then change the installed printer properties later.

get the serial settings of the printer first (bauds etc).

add:

make sure that it is a 24/9 pin NULL-MODEM serial cable

Just use the Generic Text Driver type autoexec.bat>lpt1:
or
C:\>type filename.txt>LPT1:
If that works consistently, the problem is probably in Windows.
Be sure Windows is set-up correctly with the correct printer driver and something else (another printer, FAX, etc.) is not assigned LPT1: Be sure the 710 is set as the default Windows printer. Try it on another desktop computer. If that works, try another printer on the suspect computer. I have seen cases where a baby AT motherboard was upgraded, but the printer cable/header assembly from the old motherboard was used and caused problems, but that is very rare. Also, the cable connecting to the motherboard could be backwards or loose.
