The hard drive is not responding at all. My IT guy from work lent me a device to read the hard drive by plugging it into the USB port of the new PC, but it's not responding at all. We had been hoping it was just the power supply and motherboard that was fried.
I'm not too good at messing with hardware.
My husband has an old laptop lying around somewhere. If that will boot up, maybe I'll try restoring to that, then I can transfer the files by USB key.
Thanks for your help.
