Again, crisis averted. There's a number that you can ring that gives you a number to activate windows if you're having problems :smileyhappy:

 

Have you made the call yet? If not, have fun...


Yeah, It was pretty easy, other than the fact that the voice sounded like it was saying "h" instead of "8."

Hi

Hope someone can help me, my daughters laptop as gone pop but there is stuff on the HDD that she wants back pics and stuff, god knows how many times I told her to back it up but thats kids for you LOL.

so my question is I know her HDD is ok so would I be able to stick it in my laptop and run it ok?

Or would it mess something up.

 

Cheers


 

Although the chances are that it will complain, you've still got a fairly good shot of being able to get into windows so that you can get the stuff off, try it, you can't make the situation worse. Alternatively, shove it in a desktop and boot the the HDD that's already in there.



Cheers to both of you for your replies.

I got my hands on a HDD reader looks like a card reader but bigger, but when I try opening folders in that I just get a message saying I don't have permission, so I think I will give it a try in my laptop at the weekend fingers crossed.



That's the problem that I was talking about since you have to change the permissions so that the account on your laptop can gain access to the files.

 

Just put changing folder permissions windows 7 (as long as the OS on your laptop is windows 7) into google and the first result should tell you what you need to do.

Re: PC Support Available Here

I went in the shed and found a few of my older computers :smileyvery-happy: I took them apart, salvaged some junk...

My PC has an E-SATA port on the front. What would be the easiest way to plug these few HDDs into my new PC? Just out of curiosity, to see whats on there :smileyhappy: Both obviously have OS on them (probably XP/Vista :smileytongue: Anything older has been gifted down or gone long back :smileyvery-happy:). Would it be safe to just plug them into the E-SATA with the right cable?

I highly doubt that you would be able to since depending on the connection on the hard drive (IDE or SATA) you need to get the correct enclosure and I haven't seen any that will connect to a E-SATA port.

Yeah there's a pre-release out.

 

I was just asking because the exact same thing happened to me when I installed it. It was something to do with it not supporting the version of OpenGL that my graphics card was using.
