I just bought a new Laptop after my old one crashed on me. I still have no idea what is wrong with it. My Old laptop was a Toshiba with a Pentium III 650Mhz running the Windows 98 operating system. Whenever I attempt to boot it up, it freezes on the Windows 98 logo, but with two "static-like" lines going through it. Then it simply does not boot up from there. I have managed to get into DOS using the "companion diskette" that came with the laptop and I can see that all of my files are still there. I was wondering if there is any way to transfer those files onto my NEW Laptop which is a Pentium 4 3.06Ghz running Windows XP (besides copying each file to a removable floppy disk one by one).
So given these restrictions (Windows 98 won't start, DOS working only)
is it possible to somehow transfer my files from my old laptop to my new one?
Or will this require professional service?
I am totally lost and would appreciate some help. Thank you!
