Only way to do this is to swap the hard drives. Maybe you'll get lucky, and the drives will be form/fit identical..

Iintend to change my sata hard drive to a SSD hard drive.How do I format before change


When you install Windows on your new SSD hard drive you can then transfer data from your old hard drive using an USB hard drive adapter or install the old hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive after you have transferred your data to your laptop.
When you connect the USB hard drive adapter to the laptop, the laptop will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders anf files and copy them to your new hard disk.

Hi,
You can transfer the data files only from the old laptop to the new one. You cannot transfer the installed applications/software. Software are required to installed again on the new laptop afresh.
To transfer the data you can use external portable hard disk, which can be connected to the PC using any USB port (just like pen drive) and you can copy - paste the required data to the external disk just like you copy data from one partition to another. After copying the required data, you can connect the external drive to new laptop and copy the data to the new laptop. You can use external drive of any brand/ capacity. However, it is better to have an external drive with larger capacity, so that you can transfer the data in one go.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

What I suggest you do is use the file transfer wizaed that is built n in WinXP OS's. From you old Dell go to start>Accs>System tools> file and Transfer wizard.....follow the prompts and save the file to your desktop. After the coolection and creation of the UMT2 folder copy it to a flash drive or use a cross cable between your old and new laptop and share the folder in th network s you can access it directly from your new laptop. Copy he whole folder to the desktop of your new Laptop. Run the same wizard on your new laptop.

Hello,
The driver file can be downloaded from any computer and transferred from a data traveler unto the computer you are installing on. But what you can do also is plug it up to an external monitor. There should be a port for the monitor to plug into on your laptop.

Thanks,
Lolita
