RE: XPS 8500 not working. I need to recover files from SSD

it still refuses to come on

Do you care to elaborate? Does power button light up and what color is it, and steady or blinking ? Do fans spin? Do you see anything on the monitor? Etc...

Are your personal files all on the SSD and not on an internal hard drive in the XPS 8500?

That SSD appears to be an mSATA drive. You can find info to remove the mSATA drive in the XPS 8500 manual.

You'd need something like an mSATA>USB adapter so you can connect that SSD to a USB port on another PC.
