Looking for a Macintosh Performa 550 solution...

My name is Jose coloma. I own a Macintosh Performa 550, I have used this computer for a pretty long time and it was great. I was living in New Orleans at the time of Hurricane Katrina, I was forced to evacuate and left everything at my apartment and even though the computer didn't get wet at all, it's not working at all, when I plug the computer I can hear a sound like it wants to start, but none of the lights come on and that's it it doesn't do anything else. I had accumulated a lot of personal work, I am a musician and I had made a lot midi work that unless I get this computer to work, is lost forever. Could you please help me find a solution?, either repair, or replace, adapt or anything to save my work? Any sugestions will be very welcome, as I am struggling to try to rebuild my musician life, which includes the ability to make my work available to me. Thanks, please write to pepecoloma@gmail.com to respond and Thanks again.

Jose Coloma.

There "shouldn't" be any problems

I don't think that there will be any problems with you using the hd from the 550, unless you are still running system 7.1. If you are, I can send you a boot disk for the cost of shipping that should do the trick.
