transferring data

I have a Dell XPS M1530 which hasn't been a great computer. Now th
screen is completely whited out and while the computer SEEMS to stil
function internally, you can't see anything. I have a new Dell Studi
computer and I want to transfer some files from the old compute
(specifically iTunes) to the new. I have transfer cables and have trie
numerous times to do this, but I keep getting a message that bot
computers aren't on the same network. Can anyone offer any suggestion
for how I can take data off of an old computer whose screen is no
functioning and transfer it to a new computer

Do you have an external screen you can plug in?
Was this Laptop network connected prior to screen failure?
Other than that you would need to remove the hd, & connect it to your new pc
(probably via a usb hd case)

Yes it was connected to a network, or so I thought. I used a usb to us
cable that had software with it, and followed the instructions, and th
problem seemed to be that my new computer didn't recognize that my ol
computer was connected to a network, and in fact, I couldn't tell if i
was or not because the screen doesn't work.

So, I could remove my old hard drive and connect it to a "thing" tha
has a usb port? Then would I connect the usb port to my new computer?

What i had envisioned would happen is that I would be able to "see" m
files on my old computer on my new computer's screen

If your PC was networked, and you believe it is booting correctly, try
connecting it to the network and see if it is visible from another PC.
Or
You take the hd out, put it in an external hd usb enclosure, then access the
data files from the PC its 'slaved to'
You may have to take ownership of folders, see win help
