Need to download data from old computer but need new power unit(bestec) computer 2003-5 vintage. have new windows7 how do I donwnload data from old computer


If your old computer is not working then remove the hard drive from the computer and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Plug this USB adapter into the USB port of your new computer and it will see the USB adapter with your old hard drive as an external storage device. You can then open the various folders and files and copy them to your new computer.

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.

Why is it when i go to start my computer it doesnt wanna load windows, it says disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter. My computer was working fine right before. can someone please tell me...


Hi, the computer is not detecting the hard drive or the hard drive is corrupt. At startup you are likely to hear a knocking sound if the hard drive is physically damaged. You can go to bios setup at startup ( could be F1 or Esc). Once there it should indicate if there is a harddrive or not. If it indicates none there the harddrive might have crashed and will need repalcing. I hope this helps.

How do you replace a hard drive in a HP Pavilion -Model 8674D?


The instructions for removing the back cover or front cover might be in the Owner's manual. You need to remove the access panel and once you remove it just uncrew the old hard drive and install the new one and recoonect the wires.

Install hard drive in hp a1310n


You need to do a number of things:

1) You need to carefully remove the door and the whole front face of the desktop (the front face opens like a door it swings open from left to right)

2) Once you have the front pannel open take a philips screwdriver and unscrew the memory card readers that is show in front of the deskop (there is one screw holding this card reader in place probably on the upper right hand corner.

3) Carefully remove the card reader by jiggiling it lightly till the unit comes off.

4) After you remove the card reader, you will immediatly see the hard drive directly behind the reader that you just removed.

5) Now look inside the desktop (because you removed the right hand side door: the big one that alows you to see inside the pc) and remove all cables from this hard drive before you read #6 below

6) Inside the desktop, Locate the hard drive, put your hand on the back of it and lift on the green plastic part along side the hard drive where you can see the harddrive screw which is on a metal track stopped by a green plastic stopper.

7) Lift the green plastic stopper and push the back of the hard drive to the front of the desktop.

8) Unscrew all screws from old hard drive and rescrew them on the new one in the exact same spots at the old hard drive.

9)Once you finish screwing on the screws, slide the new hard drive back from where the old one was

10) reconnect all data cables and power supply cable.

11) follow steps 7 thru 1 to put unit back together again. Go thru steps 7 thru one backwards

I hope this helps

New pocket media drive is stuck in computer


Just a dumb answer try removing the screws, if it doesn't work use your strength and rip it out. If you can't, then open the computer and take out the bay, then rip it out. If you still can't, step aside and let a mad do it for you.

HP Media Centre PC 7250 can I add a hard drive?


Here's a step by step guide for that HP 7250 model on HP's website about how to replace, or remove/add the Primary and Secondary Hard Drives (which pictures that help).

If your computer did not come with a second hard drive, you can install a second hard drive that you attach to the bottom of the inside of the computer tower.
