Recover The Data From Your HP Desktop PC

HP PAVILION 533W:

I have an HP Pavilion 533W which is not reading the CD Rom drive on my computer. The problem with this is that I use a great deal of graphics in my work, and the majority of these designs have been recorded onto CDs, which are then inserted into the CD drive whenever I need to research a particular pattern, or recreate an image which I have used in the past. This collection of CD drives is really as important to me as any data on the computer itself, as without this CD set I am not able to finish commissions or research future art project. In order to be able to recover the CD set, I uploaded a collection to my hard drive, hidden behind a partition. As I couldn’t use the CDs, I tried to access the partition, only to find that the files were not available.

HP PAVILION 533W:

I have an older HP Pavilion 533W computer. It is not the newest of systems, I know, and I probably should have updated the hardware a long time ago, but most of it is the original hardware from the makers. What I am experiencing is that the computer will suddenly shut down after only being in the Windows desktop for about 5 minutes. There doesn’t seem to be a problem with the power cord, or with overheating, but I am not able to do anything because the system shuts down so quickly. I have tried passing a few files on the desktop over to a USB drive, but the system always shuts down before the file has finished copying to the drive. This means that I am not able to save the data on the hard drive by myself.
