Vista runs NTFS...if your old XP-based machine was not, try converting to it (you'll probably need to put back in the old machine to do it)...I don't think that's the problem though as my older XP-based computer was running NTFS & my Vista-based machine keeps dinging & asking to try USB 2.0...It is USB 2.0,I then tried the setup disk and it says I have to remove the current 2.0 driver already in the Vista (I don't think so!)...I'm thinking that a Vista driver (from whatever sourse) will be needed,,,lacking that I'll return mine to Best Buy and try another brand that supports Vista.

You can copy files off your old hard drive (if it still working). Remove the hard drive from the computer and attach it to an USB hard drive adapter then plug the USB hard drive adapter and hard drive into an USB port of a working computer.
The computer will detect the USB adapter/hard drive as an external storage device (if the hard drive is OK), you can then open the various folders and files to copy and or backup your data.
After you have installed Windows on your new hard drive then you can copy your files/data onto your new hard drive/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.

How to transfer files from my old HP Pavilion 8650C to Dell computer or seagate external hard drive?


With the drive plugged in, open My Computer. You should see an icon labeled something or another that relates to your external hard drive. If you cannot determine which it is, unplug the hard drive. One of the icons should vanish. When you plug it back in, open the drive that appears. In order to transfer files, simply find the ones which you wish to move on your computer (most likely in the My Documents folder), then copy and paste them into the hard drive. Tell me if you have any more issues, and vote if this helped!

Check your hard drive usage and capacity in the system properties before investing in a new hard drive -- sometimes malware can trick you into deleting programs and files. If you are running Windows XP or Vista, open the Start menu and click on My Computer (Computer, if you're running Vista). Right click on the C: drive and select Properties. It will show you how much space your hard drive has, and how much is being used.

If you really do have very little space, try to move large files like movies and music to external storage such as DVDs. You can also run the Disk Cleanup utility to delete temporary files and empty caches.

I want to read the files of my old Hard drive?


ok you have a pc. now, plug the IDE connector to your old hard disk and plug the power connector also. Now, you have 2 hard disks. Your old hard disk must be plugged into the secondary IDE slot. Dont touch anything with your original hard disk. Just add your old hard disk to your PC through the secondary IDE slot and using IDE cable. When your Windows OS opens, you will see a new Hard Drive when you open My Computer. It could be Drive E, F or G

In your new computer go to all programs then to your user guide. Once there open the guide and follow prompts to transfer data from old computer to your new one. Some stuff may have to be reformatted do work with Vista.

Inspiron 1525 was working fine yesterday but today wont boot. Says it can't access the hard drive.


Does the hard drive LED flash and the hard drive spin up when you bootup?
If it doesn't then you could have a faulty hard drive or a fault disk controller.
Reseat the hard drive to see if it is a connection problem.
If the problem still persists then to test if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter.
Connect this to a working computer's USB port and if this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard drive is OK.
If not then the hard drive is faulty and you need a new hard drive in the Dell and Windows installed etc. to get the Dell operational again.

HARD DISC


If you bought it new then back up any files and take it back to the shop. If it's a second hand unit then you need to immediately back up to disc or pen anything you want to save. You are being warned that there is an issue with your hard drive. If this fails then you will lose all your information and computer won't fire up until you fit a new hard drive and install an operating system (if you actually have one). Once you have safeguarded your files it might be worth checking if your laptop is running too hot, which can damage a hard drive, is the fan switching on. There are programs free to download that can test the temperature.
