Hard Drive Transfer

by Muffster19710622 / September 6, 2011 1:21 AM PDT

Hi all, my laptop recently went to that great junk yard in the sky! The hard drive on the laptop has got all my photos, music, documents etcc... how do I get all that stuff onto my new laptop?

I don't want to transfer over the whole drive, no need to copy over the old o/s, as the new laptop has that.

I really just want the photos, docs etcc....

the old hard drive is not damaged, any help would be really appreciated, Thanks very much

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
