Thanks for any help!
would there be any way I could get the files off from the hard drive?
One of the easiest procedures for transferring the files and folders, is to remove the hard drive from the 'old' computer and using an USB adaptor similar to THIS then attach the hard drive to an USB port on a working computer, then try transfering the files and folders to it.
Note: Only data files and folders can be transfered, any applications, utlities and programs, need to be reinstalled from their CD's, or downloaded from the publisher's website.
