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.

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

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

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.

I went in the shed and found a few of my older computers :D 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 :) Both obviously have OS on them (probably XP/Vista :p Anything older has been gifted down or gone long back :D). 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.

Defragmentation will have next to no effect on whether a computer blue screens or not. Does the BSOD stay there long enough for you to read any of it?
