You may be able to get the data off of it. You'll need another computer with an IDE port and a hard disk big enough to take any data that you may be able to recover off of your old drive -- hook your dead hard disk up to it as slave ( you can see how to configure your drive as slave here )
Put the old disk in the freezer overnight and then put an ice pack on it (put a towel in between so it doesn't condensate and get the hard disk wet) to keep it cool while you try to get the data off of it.
Be sure NOT to touch the circuit board that is on the bottom of the old hard disk to anything metal or you might short it out. If the computer recognizes the old hard disk; you're in luck, copy the data off to the new computer's internal hard disk as fast as you can; your old drive may die completely at any time.

How to repair speedometer 95 sidekick

hey and oldie but goodie.
why not post the full symptoms. ????

Speedo dead, makes noise, bounces? what? stuck high? what?
odometer dead.
CEL glows running, the check engine light glows, running
and you insert the 1cent paper clip in the DLC connector and you get
code flashing. code 24, VSS dead?

if yes, the cable has snapped. (fell off at either end)
if not VSS dead, then the speedo is dead
if both odometer and speed are dead and VSS are dead the
snapped cable, or cable fell off rear of speedo head.
if VSS is not bad. (no 24s)
and only speedo is dead but , odometer is good
then that means the actual speedo clock inside the head is bad.

to repair a dead speed/cluster, you replace the whole head
if real frisky then you do this.
suzuki even sells new clocks, but are very expensive
what i do is find a used head. and use that. ( or at fleabay.
sometimes i mix 3 heads to get one, good head.
that is all you can do, on old cars unless rich, and $200 head is pocket change.

tell more get more, ask.

I need an detailed image of a ignition system for a mitsubishi montero sport 2000 3.0 6 cylinders

details are only 2 places, the FSM, Factory serv. man.
you can look any time. sure can.

enigine stalls, did you give at tuneup first the 60k mile column?
if not, why not now?>

STALLS 101 (can be very complex. 50+ causes , but a few tests)
  1. can you save the stall with a fast right foot, (all time top check and 100% free to do...??????)
  2. Did the lights go dead at the stall , radio , head lamps dim, yes, do test this stalls issues, with head lamps on and dash fan. It the still work at the stall , that means you have 12vdc power, the loss of which kills dead any EFI cars engine.
  3. The car 2000, year, and as such as dirt cheap scan tool fits the port (16pin) near knees. you get a tool easy, everyone here in USA can do this easy, and not doing so, misses the BOAT. you can see why it failed at that moment. EG: lost CMP/CKP sensors, see DTC error, like P0300s.gross misfire, etc. gee LOOK and do not work blind, why miss these key facts?
  4. Lost compression hot.? 1 or all 6 cyl.
  5. lost spark 1 or all 6? tests. DTC errors. manual checks tuneup time.
  6. Lost fueling and flooding, Spark tips show flooding easy, LOOK.

keep in mind, i dont have #1 info above, and is key to ALL this.
the EFI works over time to prevent stalls, so the problem is serious
the stalls can be , lack of air, ISC stuck closed (fast foot tells you)
or the ECU sees and error and decides to cut fuel.
the ECU does that on all cars, for 2 thinks, it THINKS spark is bad or
the TPS is stuck at 4v. or more.
Stall scan be engine runs so bad, the ISC can not raise the idle more. and stalls, (EGR stuck open)
a scan tool can be had for 9 bucks. (fleabay)

Over heating lost water once and its not head gasket or head what is it

This can be a few different things..

Thermostat stuck, Elect fan not working, leak in one of the coolant hoses/lines...

Does it only overheat while at a dead stop and cool down while driving? Or does it overheat no matter what?

What does the headset symbol on a nokia 6070 screen mean? I can make calls but the line goes dead after the connection is made

It means that there must be a head phone or something still inserted in your phone. the line goes dead because the phone thinks that head phones are in and transfer it throught the head phones

Think you have to put a flat bar across the back of the cam shafts same as the old ZETEC ford motors. Failing that are the vernier pullies marked with eithr O T or do they have a - or a . that line up with a position on the end of the cylinder head.
