I have an hp a1410n that the power supply has failed on. My mil gave me an hp s3020n to replace it. My question is: can I move the hard drive from the 1410 to the 3020? I like the smaller design but I

Two choices are buying an external USB box for the hard drive to be installed in and then connecting the drive to your new PC or having a local PC repair business to copy your data to DVDs for you. This is an example of why everyone needs to backup their data on a regular basis. An external hard drive is very inexpensive now. You can buy a 1 Tb external USB drive for under $70 and you can back up you data once per week or continuously if you wish. Another method is to pay for an online backup service, so if your pc or drive fails you still have your data. Also, I guess you know a power supply for your old PC is not very expensive.

Computer unable to start up.

This appears to be very straightforward. The Operating System would seem to be corrupted. To use the computer again an uncorrupted Operating System is required and would therefore have to be installed.
The Questions contains no background information, so how the fault occurred remains a mystery only known to and not divulged by the user.

you may need to replace the drive and re-install your operating system and software. A seek error means that the drive controller cannot locate the sector where information is stored or that the information stored at that point is corrupted. You may get away with reformatting the drive which will find and mark the bad sectors so the system does not use them but this also may force the drive to collapse. My advice is try one of the many available file and drive repair utilities available online and if this fails, replace the drive. If you do replace the drive, get the biggest drive that you can afford (and will be readable by the machine as some machines have a top limit on the size of the drive they can address). You will have to reinstall the operating system but this is very straightforward and windows will do all the work for you if thats what o/s you are using.

Hold down the power button until the machine completely turns off. Then turn the machine back on and let me know what happens.

EMachine T1840 Will Not Boot

Well the first thing is first. Usually depends on the Operating system. If it is a later version of XP or even Vista. Try to boot it from the restore cd. They will usually tell you if your going to lose important information and ask you if you would like to back up the information. Based upon that you can move forward or not move forward.
