    How do I pull data off the hard drive I pulled from a dead Toshiba laptop?

    So basically not much I can do to retrieve the data?

    Happy Birthday Bodhi!

    Thanks all. Only just saw this - a bit late! haha. Appreciate all the good wishes. FYI Ian, it's horrible here today! 23c and overcast / windy. Was 37c yesterday. Crazy!

    Getting my first Gaming PC! (Review)

    I’ve just built a gaming pc and did a LOT of research. Have a look at the thread in the hardware section of this forum for full spec list. I’d change a few things from your list if it was me. What’s your ideal budget?

    So I’ve pulled the plastic casing off two WD external HDs and I’m a bit confused. Everyone says all 2.5 drives are the same, connect them to the desktop machine with a SATA cable, but one of these has a 6 pin connector and one has a 12 pin connector and I can’t see that there’s any power...

    Weirdly, I have a similar problem. I've got 3 WD external passport drives which had a LOT of backed up data on them. They are all dead! 2 don't seem to power up at all and 1 gets power and you get the noise in windows of something being plugged in, but as you hear it spin you hear a click and...

    OK, it's time for a new build

    Only Fortnite but from what I understand, that’s not very taxing on a system. Funnily enough, I want to introduce my son to age of empires II. Probably could have picked up a 486 DX100 for about £20 :-)

    I already have! First machine I’ve built for probably 15+ years and I loved doing it. Also, was teaching my 7 year old son how to build a computer which he loved too :-)
