Recovering files from a hard drive of a damaged computer. Answered
Hey guys and gals,
My toshiba laptop took a dive off the counter and it doesn't power up anymore. I ordered a new laptop and I would really like to retrieve my files from the damaged computer's hard drive. I had a friend take it out and put it on two laptops, one of them being another Toshiba but no luck. I wasn't around when he tried it but I think he said that it wouldn't read the drive and it would spit out error messages. Not sure if it has something to do with the fact that the old, damaged computer was a 32bit and the ones we tried to put it into were 64.
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas on what I can do? I had just bought an external hd and I had not saved any of my pictures, videos, documents, or songs yet. I don't want to lose everything. Please help.
Thanks in advance.
oh, btw, I know very little about computer/tech stuff so please explain it accordingly. thanks again
