|I'd just like to ask how do I transfer an old IDE hard drives data to a newer SATA drive? The ide drive is an internal drive and I'd like to transfer data off one hard drive onto a new drive. How do I do this? I haven't got a pc right now to use to transfer the files and this pc i'm using is an office pc i can't do it with. When I get my new computer i'd like to take the data out of the old pata drive and put it on the new pc's sata drive.|
Hopefully the data on the drive is ok because the system died after something happened with the monitor not working right.
I guess this is a 2nd question too...
How could the old CRT monitor have damaged my computer? I am sure it was the monitor because when I plugged the monitor into another computer that was an old Pentium 2 It failed after shutting down and then trying to restart, the computer does not even power on at all.
The other pc that is not working but had the data on it still powers on but it did not the first time I tried, the last time I looked at it, the words on the screen had a heatwave-like pattern on it, it was still readable but I only kept it on long enough to look at it. I'm not sure how the monitor shorted the computer out, but the monitor was making a click sound every once in a while not too often, sometimes even when in sleep mode.
If anyone can help me with this topic, It would be very much appreciated.
