Recently my girlfriend's laptop "died", that is, it may be only the monitor but in any case, it is no longer functional.
My question is this: We would like to recover all data from the laptop hard drive without having to take the laptop to a shop to have it done.
We got her a brand new computer and would like to transfer data from the laptop disk to the new machine's disk. How do we do that?
I read that it could be done by attaching USB cables between both machines; this did not work - The new computer did not detect the old laptop drive.
Any help or a nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
