I just bought a nice new laptop the other day, but I am faced with a quandry:
My old computer has a cooked motherboard, yet I need to get my old files off the damn thing.
Now said old piece of crap is an Acer M3802, it has Intel Quadcore (Q8300) and 3GB of DDR2 ram. Other than that, There's bugger all out there about it.
When I turn it on, the light comes on, the computer revs and does nothing. No bleeps, no nothing. The little blue power light is on and that's it. I have no money or need to buy a NEW Processor as this one is being cut up for spares. I do however have a computer that I can butcher for parts, and planned to rob the motherboard from it, put it in the Acer, start it, remove the files and then cut the thing up into little pieces.
So in short, is what I'm saying doable?
