This Computer is messed up HELP!
So, I have this computer and the screen is completely messed on it. I have a 19 inch TV that I have been using as my monitor, everything else has been working fine for years without the display. today I was removing my AUTOCAD and replacing it. I uninstalled it and rebooted the computer. NOW THE COMPUTER IS TURNING ON BUT NOT DISPLAYING ON THE TV! And usually I can tell if the computer boots up without the additional monitor (TV) because the messed up PC screen usually does a sort of flicker. I have come to realize that it is time for a new computer or at least a new display. My question is what way should i go about getting the files or being able to fix the computer.
- Take the hard drive out Plug into my portable hard-drive’s adapter and into a new PC to get my files out.
- Take out the hard drive and swap it into my ''.'' Is it even possible to do a straight swap since they are relatively the same PC; or is there a problem with the licensing that is connected to the computer hardware specific?
- Change the PC display in hopes that I will be able to see the computer display when it turns on.
I really need all the files that came on the computer as it is my business computer and is extremely valuable information.
Thank you all and good luck!!
