Pull the HDD out (tutorials are plentiful on YouTube and the web) and post the make and model number so folk can share example drive cases.
I have an old hp pavillion that I haven't used for many years. Before I get rid of it I thought I'd extract the data it contains. However, it wouldn't start.
As I turn it on, the fan kicks in but nothing else seems to happen. About 3 seconds later, the computer shuts.
I have basically no knowledge of computer hardware and don't intend to keep the computer. All I want is recover the data and was hoping there would be an easy solution.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
