Question about Computers & Internet
Dunno what happened but lost you on the Live Session/Chat.
In any case soon as you get the drive off, you would need a USB to 2.5IDE adapter to hook it up to the 2nd/desktop computer and it will be treated as a removable disk. If read, then simpy copy/paste all your files to the 2nd PC. If for some reason could not be read, then you would need a file recovery utility. You can do a Google for free ware but have had good results with GetDataBack. Thereafter, it would be a matter of clean fresh install using the borrowed XP CD installer and the use of your Windows key underneath the laptop.

please read that article
There is a way I have done in the past and its remove the old drive put a new one in install new operating system. and see if I can manage to get my info off the old drive once the new drive is completly installed.
and if that dosent work I put the old drive on Ice, well a ziplock bag then into the freezer. oddly enough its saved me more time then not. I manage to get all my data off the hard drive and then finally format the old drive then it works again most of the time.
im not too sure what to suggest I wouldnt do what I do. cause its not a actual method of troubleshooting this issue.
read the article and see what you think.
if you dont want to loose any info seriously pick up a 1 gig or 2gig hard drive from a computer shop for 5 bucks install the os and manage to get your data off. well whatever size you would figure you would need also ebay is a good chance too for cheaper hard drives.
