I need some major help. I need to give you guys a briefing on what happened to so you can better understand the situation. Please bear with me.
I am or was running a Windows 98, Pentium II 233 MHz PC and I had added a new hard drive before. Except I had lost the display driver CD so I bought another video card. Problem is that it used 266 MHz with and integrated PCI rate of 365 MHz. So I think I fried the processor. The reason why I think this is because the only thing that responds to me when I turn on my computer is the mouse and the power supply. Keyboard is dead and nothing comes up on the screen so I suspect the hard drives not responding due to the suspected fried processor.
Here's where my question is:
I still want my files from my hard drive because I have some really important business and session files from my recordings on there. Is it possible for me to just buy an external hard drive kit and access it through USB to retrieve my files (even with Windows 98 still on it). If not, please give me a suggestion. Remember that I don't have a display and the hard drive doesn't kick in so these data recovery software and procedures aren't possible. Put it to you this way. The computer doesn't work, but I need the files. Any suggestions?
Point Value Problem:
Guys, I know the point value is small for this and that's because I only literally have 125 to offer and I need the hard drive's files by Thursday for recording a band. The only other thing I can offer is special thanks credit on the CD being recorded and a free CD mailed to you when it is released in January. Again, I know it's small, but I need you guys to help me out. This is my last resort. Thanks for your time.
