Hello. I am having serious issues with my laptop. A couple of months ago
(around April) the hardrive of my HP Pavillion DV 9000 completely
crashed and my father replaced it for me. But I'm having serious issues
-I can't burn c.d.s and I can't watch dvds
-I can't turn on my webcam
-The USB ports have completely stopped working.

I would like to backup my data before I get a new computer. I bought an
external hard drive to take a picture of a computer as it is now, but,
of course, it didn't work because none of my usb ports will not work. I
don't know what to do. Is there another way to save all my data without
using the usb ports of the cd drive?

Take the drive out of the laptop and install it in an external enclosure. Then connect it up to a well functioning computer so you can get at your files.

Good advice.

You will probably need an adapter for your laptop harddrive

but they are only a few dollars
