Question about Computers & Internet
My hard rive went down last night. The power cable cam loose and it seems to have shorted something. The PC won't start with the drive installed - that is even if the power cable is attached the drive the system won't start.
The drive is fairly new but has 500Gb of downloads I really want to save.
Can a new circuit board save my woes?
Try taking the drive out of your computer and placing it in another computer as a "slave". Allow the other computer to boot up and seeif it recognizes your hard drive.
If it does, access your files that you need and copy and paste to an external hard drive till you can replace your computer with a new hard drive. It's worth a try.
