    Move hard drive to another machine


    I have a failed Dell 5755 laptop. I got a replacement. Same type machine.


    I would like to move the internal hard drive to the other machine.


    Since this other machine has the same hardware as the failed machine

    would there be any issues in doing so?


    I have the COA and code for Windows 10 of the original machine.

    It was running Windows 10 home 1909 18363 64 bit.


    There is so much on that hard drive. Over 400GB. Virtual machines,

    running WSL Ubuntu and Debian to name a few applications.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. Overclock your hard drive!!!

    Heres a much easier hack that I realized quite a few years ago that really does work!

    REQUIREMENTS:
    • Hard drive with molex power connection.
    • PSU with more than 1 strand that has molex plugs on it.
    • Wire strippers, soldering iron if you're fancy, electrical tape if you're not.
    STEPS:
    • Take the strand of connectors from your PSU, and decide which one will be the donator for this overclocking adventure.
    • Cut the yellow and orange cables, then twist them together.
    • Find the power connector you've chosen as the overclocking connector, and release the orange cable from the connector. Now use your preferred method to bind them together, then place it back together.
    • Plug in a drive and feel the speed!
    Congratulations! You've just overclocked your hard drive!
