My problem is this, recently my Dell Dimension 4300 crashed (I believe it to be the video card) and truly the machine is not worth saving. I'm looking to pull documents off the hard drive, but I am unsure what exactly I need to buy in order to get the information. I do not want to make the hard drive into a slave, as it's given us quite a bit of trouble in the past. I do know there is a USB enclosure that can transfer information, but for the life of me can not figure out what it's called nor do I know which type I need (as I do know there are two kinds of hard drives). The machine has been dead for a few months now, so I'm looking to do this asap for fear of the data being lost with the non-use of the hard drive. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
