Well I also have the problem that it wont turn on anymore. Not even when I plug it into the wall.
sounds a like u need to take it to a repair place have them take out the hard drive and they will put it in a juck computer and take the files off of it and put it on a memory stick for you it should cost 15 dollars or less
This is assuming that the hard drive itself is not the issue. Although somewhat rare for personal computers, hard drives can mechanically fail. If that is the case, then the only option would be a very costly data recovery service, most likely more expensive than both of your computers combined. Unless that was a work computer or very sentimental, it is not worth it.
I've only done this once or twice, and I wouldn't recommend it for everyday fixes. But, you can pull out your hard drive and connect it to your PC as a secondary hard drive and transfer your files on to a jump drive. Which will allow you to pull files from your jump drive to your new laptop. It's not 100% effective though, because different PCs vary as they're all built differently to a certain degree.
(It looks like someone already said that, LOL. Man, I'm late. ^_^)
An external harddrive would make all the difference ^__^.
just get all your stuff on them (depends on how much stuff you have on the laptop.) and that should work, it's much better than a disc:D:
I can see that nobody really appreciated the USB solution. He wasn't takling about a USB stick! Read it again properly. The product will allow to connect the old disk to the new computer. You may need to buy a ribbon cable for notebook drives too.
