I have read online several peoples probloems about slaving a hard drive, but I am still having issues with recovering files from it. Here is the set up and what I have tried.
I was running WinXP, with 2 accounts (mine and another)
I slaved my old hard drive to my new hard drive.
It recognizes the old hard drive, and anything under administrator. When I try to access my folder under docs and settings, it tells me access denied.
I tried the right click, security, and the security option is not there on my account. It does show up on the administrator account.
I also tried to just plug in the old hard drive, as the only hard drive. Changed the jumper settings, unplugged new, and started with old.
Everything goes great till I get to the screen to log in. Up through that point the mouse and keyboard work. On the sign in screen, it is muffled in color and size. My mouse and keyboard do not work.
Any help? Thanks.
When i try to open any of my hard disc drives, a command prompt window appears & goes, but the drive doesn’t open
Actualy i can open the drive with ‘RUN’ funtion & i can access all the data but i m just not able to open it directly i think its some kind of virus, bcoz i transfered some of my file to another computer & that computer has got the same problem now

I have a dell inspiroron 1150 laptop that is giving me trouble. I sold it on ebay but the guy said it wouldnt start. he shipped it back. now indeed he was partly right. I had said in the ad that if u dropped it it would suspend and then battery and ac removal and reattaching would start it again. I almost expect that he tampered with it. But here is the problem: when it boots up it goes only into a screen where it stops and wont do anything else. The screen has just a bunch of gibberish on it- numbers and letters and a few words and it fills the whole screen. Has anyone experienced this and can u tell me if it might be the motherboard- has integrated video, the hard drive (tho it wouldnt even boot to a linux cd), the memory, or the cpu? Or could a virus cause this problem?
re the memory- i replaced the memory with new one and was reinstalling windows xp and bumped the laptop and it went into suspend mode. the same problem it had before. it must be a bad cpu or motherboard so i think i will give it up and resell on ebay as a repair or for parts. hate to put money into this thing especially as i dont know if it is just a loose connection, and where,or the cpu or motherboard.
