  1. My friends Sony Viao's screen failed. She would like to move hdd to a computer with AMD can it be done? I am getting as far as the system repair screen windows 7 home premium. Says windows cannot repair. I am assuming it has to do with all new hardware.
    She has 2 months worth of docs not backed up so I would rather not reformat if at all possible. Or is there any way to backup the drive first?
    Thanks so much for any advice.

    You have the choice of either try booting from a recovery CD (like Knoppix) or removing the drive and connecting it to a different computer to try copy/recovering the files
