Recently i wanted to move my computer downstairs, for the use of everyone. So i picked it up and started to walk down the stairs i missed a footing and slipped, dropping the tower 6-7 Steps. With it hitting each one and then finally hitting the Wooden floor on its front.
Now there was only some external damages being the Dvd drive cover coming off and some denting meaning the dvd cover cannot be put back on.
However, i reconnected it all after opening it up and checking for loose cables/broken parts and there was nothing. After i reconnected everything i turned it on and the lights came on, The fan started as normal, But on the screen an error message came up saying press F1 To continue, When i pressed F1 nothing happened and the fan sped up and sped up and sped up till it started sounding like a jet engine at which point it turned itself off.
Now when i turn it on i get no error message on the monitor and the fan does the same.
If you've read this far then Thankyou. Here's my question:
I don't mind about losing the actual computer, But i have important files on the Hard drive that i need to have access to ASAP. Is there any way i can attach the hard drive to another Computer/Laptop and access/view the files?
Here are the specifications:
-Dimension E520 Pentium D 820 Processor Dual Core (2.80Ghz, 800Mhz FSB, 2x1MB cache)
-250GB Serial ATA II 7200rpm ULD Hard Drive
-Memory Dual Channel 1024MB (2x512) 533MHz DDR2
Thankyou for reading this and i hope someone can help.
