Of course....simply remove the hard drive from the computer thats experiencing problems. Look where the HDD interfaces to the system and you will see 8 pins (2 rows of 4) with a black plastic connector on two of the pins. This is called a "jumper" on the HDD it will have a diagram by these pins showing how to position the jumper for different configurations.......use configuration "slave" and then install the HDD in your new computer. When windows loads it will recognize the HDD from your old system as an additional drive and allow you to access any and all files on that drive. GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!! :D

    if you dont have a jumper to setup the HDD, then you may have to get one from a computer store.....go to a local store and they will probably give you one, they are very for plugging it in, the cable that is plugged into the hdd on the new system should have an extra place to plug it into......dont worry, as long as the HDD is connected it will work, there is no real order for these, also, make sure you supply power to the HDD via one of the extra power connectors under your hood. remember, make sure your new HDD is set to "master" and the old one is "slave":

Your Video Card (Graphics Card) is probably bad. To isolate the problem connect another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same NO Signal Message then your video card is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works correctly, then your original monitor is bad. The fact that your monitor displays the No Signal Message on it shows that the monitor is ok.

If you have a laptop, the video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

System freezes-Video display=multi-staggered image(not legible)

It's either a loose connection from the motherboard to the video-display, or a partially-broken video-display, or the video-adapter in your motherboard.

Connect an external monitor -- if it looks OK when the internal LCD is "wavy", then your computer is fine.

But, since your say "happens to both screens", the most-likely problem is the video-adapter, which usually means that you will have to get COMPAQ to replace the motherboard.

No display asrock k10n78 am2+

Try to reset the bios!
Are there any sounds?
if the motherboard is new use the manual to see how to reset the bios.
Should be a jumper you have to move or just unplung the battery make a short between the contacts from the battery socket for at least 10 seconds . !!! Unplung the Main power First!!!.
See if it works now.

This is the problem with the display capacitor on your motherboard. Try replacing the display capacitor by good technician. If it doesnt solve your problem you need to change the motherboard. But mostly this will solve your problem.

Image wont display even with right click

Sounds like you may have the screen enlarged. Press your F11 button. It will maximize or minimize your screen (depending on what position it happens to be in at the moment). Let me know how that works for you. If it did, please rate my answer!
