    Computer Busted

    My computer just recently busted. Meaning the screen and it wont turn on anymore. I want the data off of it like my music, pictures and graphic work. I also just bought a new laptop. Is there a way to put the data off of my old laptop to my new laptop?

    The screen is busted on your old laptop and you wanna transfer the data to the new laptop right..?

    If the screen is jacked then you can't see what to copy so the only other option is to take the hard drive out put it on another laptop then burn it on disc and transfer it that way.

    If thats possible ;/

    THE RULES!

    Don't bother swapping drives and burning DVD media. That is a risky repair on most laptops that don't have hard drive swap bays, and it would take several DVDs to make s drive image.

    Just fork over $19 bucks + shipping for a SATA/ATA/IDE to USB 2 converter. Take the drive out of the old computer and plug it into your new computer's USB slot with this connector. I've used them before, and while the speeds aren't incredibly fast even with USB 2.0, they do work well.

    Its a portable 2-8 gig memory stick, you put it in your USB slot then move files that you want onto it ( My Computer then what ever the USB is named should be next to your disc drive Ex: E:/ )

    Not sure where you saw 2-8 gig memory stick--that is not what that is. It is an adapter that allows you to plug in an internal hard drive to a computer without making any internal connections. It runs off USB 2.0.

    I thought I was being very explicit in my previous instructions. You take the hard drive out of the broken computer (hence not needing it's screen), plug the hard drive into one end of this adapter (it accepts all major hard drive connections), then plug the other end into the USB port of your new laptop.
