It fell with a mighty smack ( and me ) on a tiled floor, the screen broke.

It still started. Was in an other land and location then, so when I got home I waited for this HP to arrive, made sure it worked ( was send from Holland by post ). It did. Then I connected my Toshiba external hard drive on it, which had a back up on it from my Dell dated about mai 2015.

That worked well, but was very confusing result, with all the old stuff of former users still on this HP.

Then I read about using monitor and succeeded to join DELL to Monitor. Some things worked after about 30 min, connected it to HP but then the DELL closed up.

Now I am ( as I mention in an other thread here " struggling with etc" on seven forums ) dealing with a sort of confusing PC.

I like to get the data since last mai 2015 off the DELL as my photo's are very important.

Thanks for asking Brian, all help is great in this difficult situation I am dealing with.
I know I am running a bit around like a headless chicken in my confusing trying to sort things out.

Why is there other user data on the HP ????

All you really need to transfer the data from the Dell hard drive is this, as long as the Dell drive uses a sata power and data connection.

ezDISK EZ123 USB to SATA Converter Adapter Support Up to 2TB Hard Drive - Newegg.com

But for the price, you can`t beat something like this.

Rosewill Armer RX200-APU3-25B External 2.5" SATA Hard Drive Enclosure - SSDs / HDDs, USB 3.0 Connection, 100% Screw-less - Newegg.com

Problem is finding something that cheap in your area.

Because it was send over like that.

These Dutch friend ( quite well off) learned about my problems and send me an old, not in use laptop up as a gift.

There were all the old data and bits on it ( obviously used by 2 of there kids ) and no Windows or HP CD's.
I asked if they could have a look for those, but up till now no reply. Massive country house, bits everywhere.

Well, you know, cannot be difficult about a present. In Holland we say " you cannot look a given horse in the mouth "

OK, so let`s reinstall windows 7 Professional 64 Bit on it, if it has a readable key on the COA, is it readable ?
It`s on the bottom of the laptop or under the battery.

Your COA has to say the version, just like in my above picture, it has to by law.

And don`t ever post the key, Brink was quick to remove it, Thanks Brink :)

But if you know your PC came with Windows 7 Pro installed from the factory, we will go with that.

Hi,
I wouldn't
For one reason it uses 2 usb ports
second is any hdd/ ssd you connect to it is out in the open

The enclosure I posted uses a normal wall outlet for power and only 1 usb port for transferring the data.
Not to mention the hdd/ ssd's are safe from harm.
