I installed a new computer for a client yesterday and was happy to get rid of there Windows 98 computer. I turned it off and opened the case of the old computer. I took out the hard drive and plugged it in to the new computer as a slave. Nothing! I could read it in BIOS or Windows. I plugged it back in the the original computer and nothing. Operating system not found! Not detected in BIOS.
I have tried switching the jumper.
The hard drive spins and no ticking sound.
Does it sound like a trip to the data recovery company for thousands of dollars.
How do I tell my client, it was working when I was there.
I must have the magic touch!
