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.

How can I transfer data from a tower that has been replaced by a new computer?


There are several ways. I'll offer you some options:
1. Connect the old and new with a special network cable and copy it over.
2. Save the data off the old one on a thumb drive. Copy the data off the thumb drive onto the new system.
3. Pull the hard drive from the old system and mount it in the new one, and copy the data over.
Any of these will work....

My computer will not power on, only a flashing green light on the back is on. I just bought a new computer and would like to transfer my files to my new computer. Why my old computer will not power on?...


Hi and welcome cj4man1 !
Extract the Hdd out of your old computer . Place it in a external usb box and connect the box to your new pc . You will be able to access and transfer your data .
The issue about your old computer is another matter an could have several reasons , such as power supply , damaged Hdd , defective memory , damaged motherboard ...etc ...

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 .

Transferring data from old computer to new computer


If its connected to the internet email the files to yourself and then save to your new computer. If its not online, you could try taking out the hard drive, make it a slave in your new computer and moving the data from one drive to the other then take it out and good to go.

I would like to know how to transfer data and software from a old computer to a new one I am considering to buy.


There are a couple of simple and fast ways to do this. They both depend on the systems. If you have two systems that both have network interfaces on them, the simplest way to trasnfer the data would be to connect the two computers together using a router (Linksys WRT54G about 60.00 at Staples). You can then share the drive on your old machine, and copy your data to the new machine using your network.

The second, which is slower but cheaper, is to buy a USB flash drive. 4 GB should cost about $25.00. When this device is inserted into a USB slot, it acts as a second hard drive. You can copy data from the old machine, to this and then move it to the new machine.


Good Luck

TRANSFERRING DATA


Hello Betty,

The way you do it is mouting your old hard drive as 'slave' on your new computer..(if it's not the same).
do you have any experience on computer hardware?

My computer died, but


the easy way to recover your data is to take out your hard drive and connect it as a secondary drive in any other computer, then you can get back all the data. if this is not possible you can use many data recovery tools like Norton ghost, for your help. .
