Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
Is there anyway to access the hard drive on these laptops. Someone brought it to me with what I think is a bad motherboard. The fan does not turn but the power light stays on. The dvd drive will not eject but I've checked and there is not a disc in it. I have cables to hook up to IDE and SATA drives but this type drops into its slot and I can't hook up to it. The only copy of this persons wedding pics are on it or I wouldn't even mess with it.
Ah yes, another illustration of the value of backing up often.
You didn't mention the name of the drive maker but you might get some response to an email asking if they make an adaptor that would allow you to access it via a cable if installed in another system.
I have made dozens of adaptors to resolve this knid of bottleneck. Uuuh, that wasn't an offer to make one, I'm retired and age has stolen too much of my steadiness for soldering and eyesight to see what I am doing.
