Just wandering if anyone can help.

it started when the fan to the processor broke, so it kept overheating and switching itself off.

i overpowerd this by using a desk fan to cool it, which kept it on, it went off this morning,

i left it to cool down for an hour then hooked it all back up and it says "no video input" on monitor screen, i checked all cables etc and everything seemed fine.

even bought a new monitor cable, stil didnt work, hooked up another tower to the monitor,

it worked till boot up screen, crashed then started doing the same thing for this pc,

even tried a diffrent monitor and they both say same thing, is it possible the first monitor could of fired both motherboards?

if so is it possible to retreive our files from the hard drive as all the shops accounts and files are there

Yes, all the files can be recovered from the hard drive - but someone more techy than me will have to advise how to do it.

I did it once ( a long while ago) by removing the drive and putting it into another machine as a slave drive. HOW I did that I no longer remember

don't know about the monitor
You could take the hard drive out of the pc and put it into another pc as a slave and access the files probably or buy an external usb external hard drive case and put the hard drive into that and connect to another pc or laptop
It depends on having the same programs on the other pc/laptop that open your files
I can give you a monitor
easy setting an ide hard drive up as a slave

I always thought that anything which relates to the monitor is the graphics card. I say..either take it, put it back in again and, if needed, reinstal. Or buy/borrow another.

Is the PC firing up with all the usual bleeps and is the fan at the back going?
If not the processor may be trashed. This could have trashed the motherboard as well.
You can certainly get all the saved data off the Hard Drive but in future it would be advisable to save your files to a USB flash drive, especially if it is a business PC.

This may sound really silly - but have you tried another keyboard? - some motherboards can be locked up by the lack of a working keyboard. It is just one of those stupid things to try that might work.

Lets for now say that the motherboard is toast
here is how to configure the hard disk as slave, you will of course have to have a new hard drive as the master which will contain the root (C:) picture below shows removed jumper, look at the disk drive most have a diagram or the abreviations for MA SL DS
remove the jumper and put it on the two pins which match the SL slave position.

see below too


some drives can be abit more complex see below




heres a video on adding a second hard disk, which is the same
