Did the drive work in the old laptop, or was this reason it was retired?
Hi noiseboy72, the laptop just wouldn't boot a month or so ago, so I guess the disc could have been busted. I thought I might be able to bring it back to life.Did the drive work in the old laptop, or was this reason it was retired?
There was no evidence that the disc was the reason the laptop died & it was worth a try to see if it could be used again. I realise that a dead drive is dead & cannot be resurrected. Thanks for all your advice.Nope - simply putting a dead drive into an enclosure won't bring it back to life
