You can get a external 2.5 inch drive enclosure usb connectors and backup data to another system.



My mistake you would need a 3.5 inch enclosure. I mistakenly quoted a laptop enclosure and not a desktop enclosure. If you need suggestions on where to buy them I'm sure Edge2022 can supply that information for you.

Here is a brief guide: http://www.ehow.com/...-enclosure.html

You have a 250GB SATA hard drive, so any of these will do:

http://www.tigerdire...e...&CatId=2780
http://www.tigerdire...e...&CatId=2780

Just make sure, that when you plug in your drive to the enclosure, that the jumper is set to "Master"
You can also search for some yourself.

While you are getting an enclosure, you can try replacing your CMOS battery to try to fix this problem.

There you go. If replacing the battery doesn't solve this problem, then something more serious is causing this. When removing the battery from your motherboard, make sure that you are properly grounded.
Do this by holding on to your computer's metal case (bare metal, not painted) with one hand, and removing the battery with another.
