Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
You may not even need to 'revive' it. Hard drives can be slaved in most cases. This is where you take out the
hard drive and copy all the files onto a usb and then load it on your new computer.
What is the make/model of your old computer and what is its 'problem' as far as not being able to be revived?
That has a primary and a secondary drive. You can follow the guide below. Computers that have issues
especially on start up will 'beep' at you. The amount of beeps 'tells' you what is wrong in most cases.
You can follow the guide below to try and run troubleshooting on it to get it to start. If you are not successful,
You can still slave the drive as we discussed in the second link i send you. it will give you an idea of what you are in
for if you choose this method. So you can prepare yourself and make an informed decision.
(there are companies that do this for you as well if you decide that is the option you want and you do want to keep
what is on that pc)
You can use the recovery disk possibly. We can try to boot it into safe mode to see if we can bypass it too.
When you shut down the computer fully, and you hit the start key, repeatedly tap F8. Try this a few times to see
if you get a window with options. Also, try F12 or F2. Just to get past that circle and to see if we can get options.
Please rate this solution to close out the question or reply to continue.
We would then go in and back everything up on a usb/cd
and transfer it to your other computer and download from your E drive to copy
everything there. That is the easiest part of all of it.
No. You can leave it open. Just update when you are ready to continue.
Whenever you are done here with this process and we figure out what method you
want to use. We will close out the question when done. Then i will leave you my direct link
to get back to me if you have new questions.
You lucked out! I am here until this evening. Came in later to stay on later tonight.
I am stoked to hear about your new equipment! Love new electronics. Update when
ready and settled in tonight.
