Hi guys, how are all of you? I recently got this PC from a family member of mine and he told me that it wouldn't boot up. I decided to take it off his hands because I simple thought I could go into system recovery but now I don't know what the issue is.
Power > Distorted boot screen > Nothing else
The only reason I want this computer working is to get all the family photos off of it. About 3,000 of them, also some music. So, what I'm thinking is can I put this hard drive in my computer and see if it works? Will it be compatible and or mess up my other hardware? Or can I have both hard drives in at the same time and choose which one to boot?
Computer that's broken: Windows XP HP Pavilion a6500f PC
My computer: Windows 8.1 Build
If you need me to run tests/diagnostics that are possible on this computer please let me know what to run and I will do it right away!
