Hey guys,

My Win XP computer crashed, but, the hard drive is still 100% good. I need to transfer my Outlook documents and files from my old computer to my new one. I have an external hard drive hooked up, and got some of my stuff already.

Also, is there a way to get my shortcuts from IE and Firefox?

Thanks.

Jeremy

What do you mean by crashed? To me crashed means that the hard drive doesn't work at all.

Copy the outlook.pst file from the old system to the new one and either import it or point to it as your data file in Outlook. As for shortcuts, just create new ones - or do you mean bookmarks?

Can you replace the memory and back up the files?

It was strange. I think there is something else going on with this machine. I came into the office on Monday and it had failed. I immediately thought ram, and tried moving one or the other, and it never came on. Then, we started thinking power supply. Took it to my corporate office, and then tried mixing up a 3200 and a 2700 and it finally worked *(the power supply was good.) It worked before I left. Got back to my office on Wednesday and it didn't work at all.

Take it back to the corporate office and see if it works there, it almost sounds like a power issue at your work. Get it working and back up all your data the right way and move it off to another computer.
