Question about Computers & Internet
I want to use my hard drive from my old gateway desktop for information. i'm hoping to be able to connect that tower to my compaq presario laptop, but i don't know what kind of interface i need.
I am assuming that your old desktop has an EIDE hard disk. In order to use it on your laptop, you may buy a USB 2.0 enclosure for EIDE hard disk. This will allow you to connect your old HD in your USB port, just like a USB thumb drive.
There are a lot of models on the market. It usualy costs around 40$, but you may find a good one for less.

Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU or replace it
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
hope this helps
