Recently, my pc would not start. First I changed the psu, didnt work. Then I changed the mobo...didnt worrk...took the mobo back to the store because I thought it was dead. Now I took my new mobo and psu to a local shop to have them install it in case I was missing something even though I have done several upgrades in the past. He tells me my hard drive is the problem (4-5 years old). So I buy a new hard drive and everything works great.
I need my information off my old drive, as soon as I hooked it up as a secondary drive my pc would not start even when I unplugged it. Then I did a little interent research and someone mentioned "reset your cmos". I pulled out the battery on the mobo put it back in now everything works.
My main concern is getting information off my old drive...how do I go about doing that.
Using xp pro on new drive...old drive is xp home.
