Take out the harddisk from your old computer to the new one. You can set it as Master or slave if you have a new harddisk in your new pc. There's a jumper setting for that. Just follow the setting labeled on the old harddisk.

Need to know how to transfer programs and files from old to new PC


There are three sets of items that you need to transfer.
It would be best to use an external USB drive and keep the data on the drive as a backup.

1. Settings (Internet favorites, desktop settings, cookies, address book, etc.)
2. Data (My Documents, and multimedia content)
3. Programs

It would be easy if the old computer was also a Dell; however, you can't simply "copy" to the new computer.

#1. Settings: There is a built-in utility called "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard". [Start] [All Programs] [Accessories] [System Tools] [Files and Settings Transfer Wizard]

#2. The transfer wizard has an option to copy "settings only", "Data Only", Settings and Data". Transfer only the settings and then transfer the data. It will go much smoother.

#3. Some programs are already on your new computer; however, unless the old computer was also a Dell, you will have to re-install most or all of your programs like MS Office, Printers, Scanners, Camera and Video applications, etc.

If you need more detail, please post a comment... Thanks .

Motherboard died on my Toshiba Satellite A105 S4334


That is a tricky one. Guessing that you already have the new laptop, there is a usb adaptor that accepts SATA, IDE 3.5" and IDE 2.5" drives. You plug your drive into this adaptor, and plug the usb into your new computer. Now you can access all of the files on the old hard drive.

The esay way is to buy a USB external hard drive enclosure. Put the old drive in the device, plug it into a USB port and transfer the files. The operating system will be on your new conputer. Just copy the data files from the old hard drive.
