You can hook the two computers together with a cross over cable. They should have one at Radio Shack or order one online. Here is a link that shows how to go about it. This will allow you to copy everything over.

Is there a download to fix the hard drive


To physically repair the harddrive if it has bad sectors? NO.

There is a method whereby the harddrive will skip past bad sectors, and move the information to any good sectors there are, but this is a band-aid fix.

I would get the Restoration Disk, and choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)
Then copy off ALL personal info to disk/s or flash drive/s.

Programs WILL NOT move over. (Can't copy) You have to manually install them again, or download them again, on the new harddrive.

Which leads to; After copying off all personal information, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions, computer unplugged from power, and install a new harddrive. Then use the Restoration Disk to reinstall Windows.

Don't have the Restoration Disk/s?
In the US the disk/s are FREE. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 800-474-6836
24 Hours a day, 7 days a week.

INSTALL A NEW HARDDRIVE TO MY HP PAVILION A1220N ERROR MESSAGE COMES UP BOOT MGR IS MISSING


You need to install an operating system like windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Linux OS. Your hard drive is blank now and needs programming. If you have a friend that can clone your old drive then they will be able to copy everything from your old drive as it was to your new one. Might need to contact a local computer technician to re-install windows for you if not sure. Also you need to consider the price of windows XP, Vista or 7 if you don't have a copy!! Good luck!!

I have a computer where the MOBO and CPU went bad and I replaced. The old computer came with Windows Vista installed on it, no CD. Now, Windows Vista won't boot and windows start up repair is activated...


The problem is when Vista was installed on the old pc it only recognizes that pc so you will need to buy a copy of Vista and install it on the new pc. And if you don't want to loose your info you can buy a ide/sata to usb cable and hook it up to your new pc to transfer your old info across. Hope this helps.

My old Dell HD will not fit in HP w/vista


i see..well..was the old hard drive running xp by chance?..seems that with the new vista, that each application would need to be upgraded with drivers to pull the old data..another option is to use a data recovery service.

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
