I have an old Compaq SLT lap top that doesn't work... the hard drive is still good, the internal clock battery went bad and it's not changeable .... I would like to try to access that hard drive to be able to use an old program that I have on there. the oldest computer that I have is Pentium based and runs windows 98. I have been unsuccessful in trying to "plug" that hard drive in and being able to access it. windows 98 doesn't recognize it. I have a little computer background only because I have been using them since about 85 or so but am not sure how to proceed other than going on eBay and trying to purchase (crap shoot) a working dos computer.... any suggestions?
