Sounds like you have some electrical corrosion in a connection somewhere in that system causing the low voltage. Take the connectors apart and clean them and that should help

Your old computer had IDE interface, the new computer has SATA interface.. There is a thin connector power cord and interface cords with tge same width connectors.The existing hard drive has thes cables connected to it. Connect one power cord and one data interface cable to the cd drive. Connect the audio cable to the cd drive and the Audio IN connector on the motherboard.
Unless the motherboard has a ide connector. you can not use your old hard drive or cd. You can get a external drive encloser that can convert IDE to USB

do you have 2 hard drives or a partitioned hard drive? anyhow go to my computer check and see if the drive is listed. If not you may have to reinstall it. If the drive has become defective there are readers that can transfer your info. You also can take it to Geek Squad or other service and they can transfer your info to a new external drive ( i suggest an external TB drive you can get the for $150 and they are well worth it) for music purposes and archiving. Portability alone makes it a great choice.

Operating syatem not found


How did you do the data recovery ?
i bet you put it into a desktop and did it that way ??
what you have basically done is taken the boot sector information off the hard drive. you need to get acronis boot manager or partition manager and install this as it will help restore your boot sector in your laptop and needs to be set to primary partition.

Slave drive


if you do know how to install hardrives to your computer, this will be fairly simple.

check the back of your hard drive and look for the pins. there will be a connector there that will indicate if the hard drive is a master or slave. put the jumper into slave.

after doing that. connect your hard drive to the ide cable. since it is a slave hard drive, put it in the 2ndary ide slot on that cable. you can either do this on the primary ide cable or the 2ndary ide cable.

restart your computer.

done
