Recover Data From Compaq Desktop PCs

COMPAQ PRESARIO 5000:

I have a Compaq Presario 5000 PC which is not displaying the screen well. In fact, it is unreadable, with a number of coloured lines going across the screen, as well as flashing squares which are not part of the desktop. I can’t see the screen so extracting the data from it is a problem. Can we get the hard disk cloned to another hard disk?

COMPAQ PRESARIO 5000:

I have a Compaq Presario computer which is having a number of problems with its installation and functioning. The biggest problem is that at the start, when the Compaq screen appears, I have to quickly press down on the ESC key, otherwise it will not boot into Windows, it just sits there. At the second boot menu, I cannot choose what type of Windows it will log into (I have a partitioned hard drive). Instead, when I touch a key in order to select the other Windows desktop, it just hangs onto the loading screen, and does not load up. This is a serious problem for me, as it is effectively shutting down half of my hard drive and memory.
