Use a software program such as Acronis to completely backup your existing hard drive while it is working. Then when it dies you use the same program to install the backup you made to the new hard drive.
The program will put the backup on your external hard drive and use it in the future when the time comes to reload your new drive. The programs installs usb drivers so you will have no hassle using the external drive to reload the new drive.
That program has saved my sorry rear beaucoup times!!!!!!!!
Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.
Locked Password where? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows User Account (userid) Password? And which operating system?
If it's the Bios Password, then you will need to remove the CMOS Battery and let the computer sit for a couple of hours. Then put the battery back in and try rebooting. You'll have to go back into the BIOS or Setup to put the correct date and time in but the password should be gone from memory.
If it's the Hard Drive Password, you're kinda out of luck. Hard drives are locked 99% of the time when the computer is stolen. The original owner either locked it while he had possession of it or he could have locked it remotely when it was stolen to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The only way around it is to have the original put the password in, or Purchase a new hard drive to put in the computer, reload the operating system, reload the drivers and reload application programs.
If it's the Windows Password for User Account turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Take the Safe Mode option to boot the computer. When it comes to the login screen it will show you the Administrator account and the Account for which you forgot or don't know the password. Log into the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it). When windows desktop comes up click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When the User Accounts window opens up click on the User Account for which you forgot the password then select Remove Password. Reboot the machine
The hard drive stores the operating system for this machine so you would have to have the copier programming to reload after you changed the hard drive and I am not certain that the programming would even support a larger drive. Default code is 123456 Turn off copier, press 0 and 8 and hold down while turning copier on. enter 263, start, enter new code press enter. Turn off and on
The problem here is you need to format and reload the operating system and all the software in order for the new motherboard to work with your old hard drive , because you cannot just simply put an old hard drive to a new motherboard without formatting the hard dirve and reloading all software, because a new motherboard needs a fressh installation and fresh operating systme on your hard drive so they will work together..
It's 50/50. With some hard drives you can reload the system, with some you can't. If it's one that won't allow you then you will need to replace the hard drive. One little trick you might try if the hard drive won't allow you to reload is place the hard drive on the speaker magnet in your car overnight. Open the trunk, and you should see the magnet at the base of the speaker, just stick the hard drive directly to it, and leave it. A speaker magnet is strong enough to scramble a hard drive. This doesn't always work, but it has worked a couple of times for me with hard drives I've picked up at auction that were password protected.
just plug the old hard drive into your new system insuring that the setting of the jumpers on the old harddrive are set to slave. then when you boot up your system your operating sustem will detect the old harddrive and then you can access if in the my computer folder. In order to keep the the operating system working in the old harddrive do not delete any system files just delete the data you copied in to the harddrive, to be safe do not delete anything in the windows folder in the old harddrive
