There would be 2 solutions to this question

1. remove the hard drive and install it inside the new PC as a secondary hard drive. and copy your data off

2. remove the hard drive and put it in an external USB case, then plug it into the USB on the new PC. they look like this http://compreviews.about.com/library/graphics/BelUSB2parts.jpg there are many different brands most PC shops have them.

Transfering data from damaged motherboard


The motherboard does not store any information. The hard drive stores all the information. If the motherboard is damaged, you have to either buy a new motherboard or remove the hard drive and install it into another computer.

I can't turn on my computer. Also i can't reinstall my OS. What should i do?


Hi and welcome sofeski_goce !
Extract the drive out of your pc . Place it in an external usb box and connect it to a healthy computer or connect it as secundary right inside the computer to the motherboard with the correct interface ( IDE or Sata ) .
Back up your data , especially the drivers .

Format the drive and place it back inside your machine . You will now be abble to install a fresh version of your OS , provided the drive is not damaged .
Best regards ,
Fanaudi .

I have no local c drive how can i reinstall


Either:
* the existing disk-drive is not connected (power, data) to the motherboard;
* the existing disk-drive is "dead";
* there is no disk-drive at all inside the case;
* the motherboard has been told to "ignore" the device.

So, either:
* connect (power, data) the disk-drive to the motherboard;
* remove the existing "dead" drive, and install a new one;
* buy a new disk-drive, and install it;
* enter the motherboard's "BIOS SETUP" mode,
and use the "auto-detect disk drive" tool to "add" the drive.

PCCHips M955G V:3.0A. When i put on the system, the windows go down and the led shown a lot of messages. The main problem is: CMOS ckecksum BAD.


You may have damaged the motherboard or memory... However, I don't see how you inserted the memory backwards. 168-pin memory is keyed and can usually be inserted only one way. A CMOS check sum error is usually caused by corrupted data in the CMOS memory. When the computer boots it adds all of the ones and zeros in the CMOS and drops the carry bit. It compares the resulting sum to a like (we hope) sum that was generated when the CMOS data was produced. If the two do not match, the CMOS is presumed corrupted, and an error is generated. The corruption can be caused by defective CMOS memory or power problems caused by a shorted motherboard, an expansion card that is not properly seated, a defective component, etc. I would check the battery with a multimeter and make sure it is good and installed correctly. Some older motherboards have a CMOS battery soldered onto the motherboard and have a jumper which must be changed to use an external battery. The battery on the motherboard should be removed if an external battery is installed. It can leak and damage the motherboard beyond repair. Do not use a soldering iron or anything hot to remove a battery form a motherboard. The battery can explode. I use a combination of pliers and diagonal cutters to remove these batteries. The computer must be unplugged when doing it and care must be employed (not an operation for an overly ambitious gorilla). Some batteries include the system clock, are usually black and rectangular, soldered to the motherboard, and are supposed to have a 10 year or greater lifetime. When they fail, the motherboard is usually a goner. Most motherboards have a jumper, which can be used to discharge (erase) the CMOS memory, and this may fix the problem. Be sure the computer is off and unplugged, move the jumper to the discharge position, wait 10 minutes, move it to the normal position, attach the power cord, and turn-on your computer. Some motherboards can be damaged it the computer is powered on with the jumper in the discharge position

Everything was working fine, then one day I switch...


Try to check your CPU unit it maybe have a power when you turn it on. Or just check their power suppy at the back when it works. If you check that all and it works normal just check inside your computer and try to see the Power LED (Light Emiting Diode) of the motherboard if have a light. Because if it is have a light your motherboard is good and if it is no light in the Power LED of the motherboard that was damage. But if your motherboard does not have installed Power LED try to check the CPU Fan it maybe works properly it because the CPU Fan was conncected in the motherboard if did not works the motherboard is also damage and need to replace. But if the CPU Fan was working properly, try to hold the CPU Heatsink if it is very hot the damage is your micro processor.

No boot but with power and fan moving


when your bios setting is wrong, you just have to set it to default by unplug it and then plug it again..and done, your bios is set to default
have you try change your data cable?it maybe damage
or could posibly your harddrive is damaged, you can try a simple experiment, try it to another computer, or try the motherboard with another harddrive....if its OK, then you have no problem with your harddrive......and perhaps your motherboard are damaged...

Hello Sujit,
I am not very sure about what exact the issue is.. Are the Tally files damaged or the computer not booting up? The question seems to be incomplete... What is the error that you see?
Taking into consideration the 2nd scenario that the computer is not booting up .. There are many ways you can get your data back.
>> Try to boot your computer through "Safe Mode" and try to restore the computer back to the date it was working properly
>> If you have installed any new hardware, try removing the hardware and see if the computer boots up
>> You can try Repair installing the OS.
>> You can connect the harddisk to some different computer and try to copy the data from the damaged Harddisk

Please let me know if that helps or please reply back with the full description of the issue so that we can assist you better.

Regards,
Srinivas
