Instead of using another latop to get your data back, buy an external USB caddy for the hard drive, you can pick these up for as little as £3, then connect your hard drive to it and plug it into another computer to access all your files on it, once u have all your data off it you can format it and have yourself an external hard drive.

How can i restart my compaq presario sr5605f desktop after it lost power during a restart repair cycle?


You may need to reload. Be sure to back up your data first. If the machine won't boot, and you have important files on it, you could purchase a USB Hard Drive Adaptor, pull out the hard drive, and copy any important files to another machine. Good luck.

I have the simple tech 1 tb external hard drive, I updated my mac OS and now my drive can no longer be read or opened???


Apple will recognize a FAT 32 format. Connect the drive to another machine - a PC. Copy your data to this computer, format the drive to FAT32, copy your data back and it chould be accessable to the MAC system again.

I need help installing a second seagate 1tb internal hard drive on a compaq presario sr5502fh? dont know where the data connection for the second hard drive goes.


If you haven't changed the motherboard from the time you bought it, then there must four onboard sata connectors on the motherboard, refer below picture; c24ab14.jpg

If you haven't installed four sata drives, then there must be at least 3, you can connect the new hard drive on any port, no matter Master or Slave, Primary or Secondary, it'll automatically set it for you. You also no need to worry about the cable, both the ends are same, it works on any direction; 80e9306.jpg


Same thing with the power cable, you can join it on any power cable.. daeb671.jpg

I hope this helps, if you have problem with this or if in case your motherboard is different, please let me know;
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Phillips 1TB HDD problem, playing movies hrough DVD player (USB)


My question would be are the movies in the right format. Just because they play on your computer does not mean they will play on you DVD.NTFS or FAT 32 would have no bearing on this. They are simply data per sector protocols and are related to magnetic storage devices.You may need the proper codec for you computer so it can make a DVD you player can play.

Free space on my compaq computer


you stated previous crash-so if they reformated you will have only that functional part of the hard drive restored, depends on hat caused the failure-software or electrical issue. in any case, do a DEFRAG and see where the red/green/blue lines are. ALSO, see if the hard drive was formatted to a FAT or NTFS format. If the store did a FAT you loose a heap of hardrive space.....
