You can remove the hard drive and put it in to a USB hard drive enclosure. You can find them on Ebay, Amazon etc.
Then plug it in to another computers USB port and transfer the data that way.
Just make sure you get the correct one for the drive. There are IDE and SATA versions.The IDE version connector is 2 rows of 22 pins.

Can data be retrieved from a power fried drive?


Forensically always, by removing the platter and putting into a drive that is good.

what I would suggest you do it to get an external USB Hard Drive enclosure, and put the HD in there. Connect the USB to the computer and pray. If it doesn't work, put a new hard drive into it and set an automatic backup every couple or days. Power Supply Units need annual maintenance. I vacuum mine once a year and take them apart and wash and lubricate the fans every 2 years. Replace the fan after 6, they are cheap enough. But fans with ball bearings. When you do the vacuuming, do the CPU fan and heat sink and also the fan and heat sink in the video card.

PSU has a thermal fuse in it, but I would buy a new one. They are cheap too.

Samsung external hard drive


!! You have failed to provide a detailed problem. !!


External hard drives are plug-and-play devices used to store music, video and data files. Once the drive is connected, the computer checks its systems for the appropriate drivers, loads them, and the external drive is ready to use. If the computer does not recognize the external drive, plug it into another computer to ensure the drive is not corrupted. If the drive is good, a few simple steps should help re-enable the drive for use.
Switch the power button to "off." Disconnect the power cord from any extension cords or power strip, then re-seat the power cord into the hard drive. Connect the cord directly into an outlet and power up the drive. If the drive is powered and still not working, check the data cable. Power down the hard drive and disconnect the data cable from the computer. Wait 30 seconds to one minute. Reconnect the data cable and power up the drive. If the drive is not detected, power down the hard drive and connect the cable to a different port. Power up the drive. If the drive is detected but not working, check for a missing driver. Click on the "Start" button, right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Enter your administrator password if requested. Select "Device Manager" and double-click "Disk Drives." Right-click the yellow exclamation point and install the missing driver. Close the Device Manager. If the drive is detected but not working check to ensure it has an assigned drive letter. Disconnect all devices connected by USB cables from the computer. Reconnect the drive's data and USB power cables directly into the computer. Click on the "Start" button, right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Enter your administrator password if requested. Click on "Disk Management," right-click the external hard drive, click "change drive letter and path," and click "Add." Assign a drive letter. Avoid using A, B or C (C is usually assigned to the computer's internal hard drive). Click "OK" close the window. If the drive is detected but not working, check whether the drive is in sleep mode. Disconnect all devices connected by USB cables from the computer. Reconnect the drive's data and USB power cables directly into the computer. Click the "Start" button, right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Enter your administrator password if requested. Select "Device Manager" and double-click "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." Double-click the first instance of "USB Root Hub" or "Root Hub." Check for the hard drive. If the drive is not visible, move to the next instance of "USB Root Hub." Continue checking each instance until the hard drive is located. Once located, click the "Power Management" tab and uncheck the "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" box, click "OK," then close the Device Manager. Power the computer down, wait 30 seconds to one minute, and power the computer back up to ensure the drive is detected.

CPU Fan sounds like a jet and computer won't start


It sounds more like the hard drive, the fan has nothing to do with your computer booting up. If the hard drive is starting to go bad it will not boot up, that's what it sounds like your computer is doing. I recommend checking out the hard drive and replacing it.

As far as your computer. You should be able to get the data off it. Assuming the hard drive is okay. But as far as your external.. I'm not sure . Depends on what you mean crashed. Even if, lets say, you can't use it b/c it keeps crashing in windows. Doesn't mean that you couldn't get stuff off it. So you should be able to get your data off. "should". After that you should run checkdisk /f and have it scan those drives. If they have bad sectors it will mark them and tell the computer not to put data there. Then they should be okay to use.

No image input and pc makes weird sounds on start up


Remove & reinstall all the memory sticks (reseat). If that did not fix the problem, remove all the memory sticks and reinstall them one at a time to test them in an effort to determine if one of them has gone bad. Use this same methodology to test all of your device cards.

Check to make sure the CPU fan wire is connected to the fan header on the motherboard and that the fan is operational. Most motherboards (especially AMD) require the CPU fan to be operational and connected to the motherboard to avoid frying the CPU. However, this requirement can be disabled in the bios to accomodate CPU fans that do not run off of the motherboard fan header.

Can you get into the bios? If so, I would suspect the CPU and memory are ok. Does the clock have the right time? If the time on the clock is wrong it could indicate your bios settings are not being maintained after you power down and you may need a new CMOS battery.

Usually a beeping motherboard is an indication of a hardware issue. The data on your hard drive is probably intact. If you need to retrieve some files from the drive for your graduation, you can always install the hard drive into a USB external hard drive enclosure and connect it to an oprational computer.

Hope this helps - good luck!

Nope...

The eSATA ports are not configured in the device's firmware, and the USB 2.0 ports are useless except for charging your iPod or powering a USB fan. If you could connect an external drive to the unit, it would be partitioned with data encryption that can only be accessed by the particular DVR that formatted the drive. You can however stream local channels to a video capture card via the firewire ports but cable channels and DVR recorded programs would be encrypted. You can thank the MPAA for the grief...
