Hello all,

Hoping that somebody may be able to help.

After an engineer came out change over a faulty graphics card, he tried to make the system quieter by changing out the power supply and fans.

All was well for about two hours until everything went dead and no I can't get any power to the system.

So...can I back up my two SATA Western Digital drives to an external hard drive via my laptop with a seperate power supply?

I bought a IDE to USB 2.0 cable (with power supply) and then found out that my HDD was SATA :oops: 

Anybody got any ideas?

Many thanks in advance.
