Question about Computers & Internet
Computer died couple of weeks ago. Got a new one (from BBuy, where I got the one that died, and the one before that!) The guy said he thought my hard drive might be OK. I still have the old computer. Is it possible to (a) bring the old computer in and have the Geeks take out the hard drive and put it in my new computer, (b) TRake the old one out of the old computer and bring it it to transfer onto something I can put into the new computer? Maybe pick out the stuff I need from the old one and put it on a portable storager unit or something? (c) some btter idea you have?

You can buy an external USB drive enclosure, mount the drive in the enclosure, then connect the old drive to the new system.
here is a popular model:
if teh old system is a portable, then there are 2.5 versions also available
