Since this is in the motherboards section, I assume the motherboard has failed.
Remove the hard drive from the computer.
Borrow or purchase (If you do not have one) an external hard drive adapter that connects to a USB port.
Plug the drive into the adapter, and plug the USB cable of the adapter into a different computer.
The second computer must be running the same E-mail program (Thunderbird, Pegasus, etc.) as the first computer was running. Open Windows Explorer and double click on the E-mail you wish to read.
The email program will display it.
If you purchase a new computer, and wish to transfer all of your old E-mails to the new computer, copy the entire E-mail directory to a USB stick and load it onto the new hard drive, or mount the old hard drive in the new computer alongside the new hard drive.
The old hard drive should show up as drive D: in Windows Explorer.
Newer sata drives do not rely on the master/slave settings that old IDE drives used. Remove the old drive from the bad computer and plug it into an available slot in the new computer. Boot the new computer. Under My Computer/Computer the second drive will show up with the next letter available. Alternately you can buy an external hard drive dock that connects via usb and use that to transfer your files.
The simplest way to transfer files from your old to your new computer is by using USB flash drives. Just save your files from the old computer onto the flash drive then plug this USB drive in to the new computer and save the files there. If you have large files, you can also use an external hard drive to copy and transfer files.
To transfer files from an old computer you can use USB or flash drives, copy the files from your Old Computer to Flash drive, after copying---attach the flash drive to your new computer then copy the files and save it. This is the easiest way to transfer files.
Other way of transferring;
-You can also transfer files by Burning your files into a CD/DVD and copy it to your new computer. -Get your hard disk from the old computer and attached it to your new computer -Or connect/network your two computers.
I recommend USB or Flash drives, the simplest and easy way.
Here is what you need. Go to a computer retail shop or get it online. You need an IDE / sata USB adapter cable. Here is what it does....you take the hard drive out of the damaged computer and attach the adapter to it, the other end is a USB plug that attaches to tyour good computer. Your good computer will read the drive on the usb cable and treat it as an external hard drive that you can copy and paste till your heart's content. The adapter dell for around 20-35 bucks. It is the safest way to transfer all your documents, favorites, nusic, Etc from the old system.
That is a tricky one. Guessing that you already have the new laptop, there is a usb adaptor that accepts SATA, IDE 3.5" and IDE 2.5" drives. You plug your drive into this adaptor, and plug the usb into your new computer. Now you can access all of the files on the old hard drive.
The esay way is to buy a USB external hard drive enclosure. Put the old drive in the device, plug it into a USB port and transfer the files. The operating system will be on your new conputer. Just copy the data files from the old hard drive.
