I need to know how to retrieve my files from an old hard drive on a new laptop or desktop, how & where do i install it, the prongs don't seem to match.


You will need a few items to get data off of your old Hard-Drive.
If you have already removed the old hard-drive you'll need something like this:
http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-30504-Serial-Adapter/dp/B000UO6C5S/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1352401035&sr=1-2&keywords=sata+usb+adapter



to attach to another machine to extract the data.


Your old HDD will act like a external hard-drive and you can retrieve your data that way.


Hope that helps

Iintend to change my sata hard drive to a SSD hard drive.How do I format before change


When you install Windows on your new SSD hard drive you can then transfer data from your old hard drive using an USB hard drive adapter or install the old hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive after you have transferred your data to your laptop.
When you connect the USB hard drive adapter to the laptop, the laptop will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders anf files and copy them to your new hard disk.

Changing hard drive / do i have to reinstall os?


If the old hard drive is still working, then you could make an image of it and restore that image on the new hard drive removing the need to reinstall the Operating System.

There are several free programs available that can make the image:
Easeus Todo Backup
Paragon Backup & Recovery 2012 Free Edition

If the old drive has failed and you do not have a full backup, then you will need to reinstall the operating system and all your programs and data that was on the old drive.

Have replaced computer. Motherboard dead on old one. Is there any practical way I can get pictures and such from old computer. It will not power up. Thanks


You should be able to tak the hard drive out of the old one and put it in the new one as a secondary drive. There is a good chance, though, that the drive won't fit. If it doesn't, you'll need something like this.

I want to change hard disc, need instruction how to replace the old disc and install new one


There should be a removeable panel on the bottom side of the laptop that covers the hard drive. there might be several, so you may have to remove several panels before you find the hard drive.

To remove the hard drive, slide it away from the connector side to unhook it, then lift it up and out of the compartment. Examine the connector side of the hard drive, because there is probably an adapter affixed to the connector/contact. remove the adapter (if applicable) and put it on the new hard drive, then drop it down into the compartent and slide the new hard drive in towards the connection to connect it.

Now, you will need the windows disk that came with the computer to reinstall windows. if you do not have a disk, you can order one from sony.

if, instead of starting with a fresh windows install, you wish to copy windows with all of your data to the new hard drive, you will have to hook up both the old and new hard drive up inside a desktop and use cloning software such as Archaos makes to copy the old disk's data onto the new one, windows and all. These hard drives may be smaller than standared hard drives, but once the adapter is removed, they have the exact same SATA connectiuons as do standard desktop[ hard drives and will hook up to a SATA capable desktop (any made within the last 5 years) just fine.

My Iomega 1 TB desktop usb 2.0 hard drive stopped working. it makes a ticking sound and turns off on it's own.


This means that your hard drive has died so will need to be replaced. This is what you need to do:
1. Buy a new hard drive
2. Open up the casing of your old device
3. Remove the old hard drive
4. Place the new hard drive in the bay
5. Re-assemble the casing and plug in

How do i fix a hard drive on a lap-top


You need to remove the old hard drive first. Depending on your model, there should be a screw or two on the bottom of the computer that gives you access to the hard drive. You remove the old drive, take it out of it's caddy, take the special connector off of it and install it on the new drive, put the new drive in its caddy, and replace the hard drive.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this as fixya.
