Unfortunatley it looks as if the whole machine has packed up, I did however ask Essexboy if there was any way of saving some of the data on the hard drive his response was
"Yes you can slave the hard drive in the new system. This will also give you more storage space, as this is what I do when my system reaches the end of its life. I salvage what I can from the old one and use the drive as a second storage area
Broni would be able to help you more in that area - as I need to have the bits in my hand to make it all work"
Is there any way you can help me with this?
