I have an emachine T2085 that is loaded with programs customized to run a labview test sequence. It also has additional board added to accomodate the test equipment. The board on the computed died and the PHD student we hired to write the test sequences is no longer available. I tried to fun a diagnostics but I cant get pact the boot screen. I pulled the Cdrive and put it in another computer and all the data and operating system are in tact so the hard drive is OK. Does anyone know if I can purchase a newer emachine and replace the hard drive with my old hard drive then update the newer system drivers. Will my hardrive from the older machine boot in the new one? I am running windowsXP. I really appreciate the help as I know enough to be slightly dangerous and this is a very important tool we use for qualifications testing.
