Q: hey well i found my old computer in my garage and decided to take out it’s hard drive and add it to my new computer so i screwed it in plugged it up and it wouldn’t show up anywhere not in device manager or anywhere so i asked a friend and he told me to give it a drive letter so i did but now when i access my computer it takes ages to load up, both hard drives show up but when i click on them my computer doesn’t respond and closes down. what should i do?

    There is probably a problem with that old drive. I think you’re best option is to just pull the old drive back out and get back to normal.
