Rescue The Data From Your Dell PC

DELL DIMENSION 5100:

I am using a Dell Dimension 5100. It is basically a home PC, and so I need to have a lot of Ram available in the system in order to play the games that I want and to run Photoshop for editing my photos. I decided to install a 1gb RAM as an extra memory for my computer as a replacement for one of the older and smaller RAMs, but I found that it was the wrong sort for the system, and that it needed one of the old ones in order to operate. I removed the new RAM, put in the old ones, and turned the system on again. Since that time, I have not been able to boot up the computer to any system. It simply will not operate or work as it should. It will turn on, but there is now loading of Windows. The third Diagnostics light is on. I called Dell about the problem, but I have been charged £70 already just for being told that I need to contact a Data Recovery Company.

DELL DIMENSION 5100:

I have a Dell Dimension 5100 that I have made a serious mistake with. I knocked it over while moving house and now it will not boot up and is making a very loud clicking noise. I removed the hard drive and tried to read it in a USB enclosure but it is making a very loud clicking noise.
