Question about Computers & Internet

3 Answers

Computer died. Need to do data recovery of SATA hard disk.

My wife has a Compaq Presario SR1151NX, 160GB SATA Hard drive, 512MB RAM, Intel Pentium 4 processor 3.4 GHz, Motherboard ASUS PTGD1-LA. Her computer died (does not turn on at all). It seems like the motherboard or the processor stopped working. I like to back her data from her SATA hard disk to my computer (Dell Optiplex GX-270) which has an EIDE drive. I'm not sure how to do this. I'm pretty good with computers (it is a hobby of mine). My wife has very important files in that SATA hard disk and cannot afford to lose it. Any help will be greatly appreciated it. Thanks in advance. Edward Nino

Hey Edward,

Use a SATA external hard drive enclosure (listings for the device on ebay) to connect the disc to a USB port on your other machine and transfer any data off of it.

You can find these devices locally also but you can pick them up on ebay pretty cheap.

You can open her comp and remove her hard drive...on the back where the wires connect will be 8 pins hopefully with a jumper attached to 2 pins...on the top of the drive should be a diagram as to which pins need to be connected to change it from being a "master" to a "slave"....keep the original HD in your comp as the master and install her drive in your comp set to slave...you may have to get another ribbon cable to hook to her drive if there isnt 2 connectors coming off yours ...it should have 2 though also there should be an extra power supply connector there...when you open up "My computer" it will show that you now have 2 hard drives and you can access all the info on it.....just make sure to keep your HD as the master cause it has all your operating system data on it..
it really isnt as hard as it may sound
lemme know if you run into any problems

Reagarding some Hard disk


You system probably supports IDE hard disks up to 200GB in size. It all depends on what chipset was used on your motherboard. Since it is a PIII system, the 200GB limit is most likely quite solid. Although, you can get past this by installing a PCI card that can handle larger capacity drives. You could also opt for using a SATA controller, but you will be limited to SATA-150 instead of the more current SATA-300 with a PCI interface.

No display on computer


First thing is do you have a beep when the system boots? Sounds like you may have a BIOS issue I would start there........your RAM and processor are more than likely NOT the problem

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
