Replace the motherboard by one compatible enough to allow Windows to run.
Then start thinking about a disaster plan.
- What if had been your hard disk failing in stead of a mere motherboard? Without installation disk you're out of luck; that would simply mean that you can't use the software anymore.
- How to access the data from your backup?
Hi guys I got a problem. Recently at work, a computer in the local network is not working anymore in the way that the keyboard and mouse are not working and it is a motherboard problem. Already tried to change them. I need to access a specific software to get its backup but it must be through the software and not just by connecting the harddisk to another computer so a format or windows reinstall is out of the question as the software has a safety function that if you try to access its data without logging in the software first, it is deleted.
Also I cannot reinstall windows and then reinstall the software as we do not have the software installation disk.
Is there a way to connect to the computer via the local network even though nothing is shared on it? I have all the relevant administrator logins and passwords.
