You need to get a usb "linking cable", this cable has a standard usb on both ends and comes with software. Just plug it in to both laptops and run the software to start transferring files. These cables usually cost 20-30 dollars and can be picked up at most electronic or computer stores.

Good Luck
Hope this helps

Have just bought a new laptop/notebook and want to download the user manual for this product


Their are a number of ways.
1. Link them via a WIFI router, share the old laptops data files folders and copy them to the new laptop.

2. Programs you cannot transfer, you need to re-install them in the new laptop.

3. Put the data files on USB memory stick and load them into new laptop. Most sticks will do Gigabytes more than a DVD will hold.

4. As above with a LAN connection, share the files and make sure both computers are seen in the same workgroup (see file explorer to make sure they are).

Will not power on at all need to get data from hard drive .i hooked it to adapter can feel it running but will not show up on my computer old system was xp media new one is 7


Remove the drive from your old laptop. Order a Sata to Sata/Ide hard drive adapter or a Sata wire with a usb connector from a place like Tiger Direct or Staples. Plug in the Sata wire into your drive (It is the only wire you need to make the hookup complete) then check to stt if Windows 7 recognizes the drive. If not you will need to get some software (downloadable and usually free) that will transfer files between operating systems.

How do I transfer files from old computer to new


You can't transfer programs, programs have to be reinstalled.

You can copy things like your My Documents Folder, My Pictures, My Videos, and Favorites to a usb flash drive or an external drive then put the drive into the usb port of the new computer and copy them to the appropriate folders (Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos, etc).

I got an old laptop and I bought a new toshiba laptop I just wanna ask how do I transfer my application and files from my old laptop to a new one using external hardrive,also wat external hardrive,and also...


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!

My lenovo lap top screen stays black even if the computer is on..


hi msinon, connect another external screen to the IBM-machine to check if simply the screen is broken.
If that does not help, remove the RAM-memory module (see instructions or manual), retry booting up without it, if still not lucky, the mainboard is broken and you will have to exchange it or get another new machine.
Think of transferring the old harddisk to the new laptop or keeping it as an external back-up source(you will have to buy an USB to SATA adaptor plus harddisk case) sa you can use it like a flash drive...

good luck

Data transfer


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.

Transferring video and sound from my lap top to my television set


From my understanding.. S video is just another way to output video from your laptop to your tv.. as for sounds you'll need a cable that connect to your earphones or your laptop to the audio input of your tv.

Hope this will help you...
