Fast computer help needed

Post by Mainecoons on Mon Aug 06, 2012 12:04 pm

The old computer with my accounting books has crashed. I have the books on a backup drive in that computer which is almost certainly OK, it appears that our "friends" at CFE cooked the power supply. I need someone who can quickly read that hard drive and transfer the files onto a disk or chicklet.

Thanks.

I'd contact Helper Guy. He's done well for some friends with computer problems.

I assume you don't have a second computer right now. I got access to my OLD hard drive by plugging it into the CD Rom cable of another computer ... but that is old technology. Controllers have changed a few times since. If it's only the PS they are not expensive

MC,
THis is a really simple thing for a tech to do.
HG or others should be able to connect it as another drive (just like it was on your PC) and get the stuff onto a USB drive, etc.

I'd do it but I dont have a desktop system available.

Power supplies are cheap and easy to fix too. Since you have to take the cover off anyways just put a new power supply in.

How old is it. I have a box of power supplies for towers
at LCS. Might just replace the power supply and all may
be well. Let me know.

Can you pull the power out so we can find
an identical one? About 8 different types
over the years. Should be a few screws and
a bunch of cables. Take a digital picture so
you know how to hook it back up. I will be
at LCS at 10:30 this AM tuesday. Or another
day would be fine. I assume you are in a hurry.
If you are come see me with the P.S. or bring
the whole case down.

I have the computer over at Mike's now, he's looking at it and copying the hard drives. I'll get in touch when I find out what he has to say.

Zed, he confirmed the power supply is bad. I'll pull that out and see if you have one in your bag of goodies. Thanks!
