Instead of using floppies to transfer the data you could take the hard drive out of the old PC set the jumpers to slave, connect it to the new PC and you should be able to see it and just select the files you want and send them onto the new PC’s hard disk. Hope this helps. David.
I think I forgot to mention that the corrupt pc is running win98SE and is a laptop. The problem starts off (if u r already bored dont worry),when the user tried to upgrade ie to ie6. Somewhere along the line it asked if he wanted to delete comctl32.dll and he said yes. The hardware support took me through trying to copy the dll onto the pc but to no avail. I cant even get to windows anymore and have to use dos to copy numerous files......the only way I know how, before I rebuild this piece of gunk that starts with a C and ends in a Q
If you can get into DOS then all is not lost, i hope, where there's DOS there's hope! |Have you tried to run SCANREG, this should detect and fix registry related problems and allow you to boot up, even in safe mode and allow you to do your thing. Hope this helps Kitz E Kat
As above (Devious Dave)you could remove the laptop Hd add to your desktop system as slave by using a drive Ide converter.(around a tenner)Ive done this to recover data on several laptops ,Burning Docs etc to Cdrom to read and copy on Laptop after reinstalation of O/s.
