I'm not familiar with the Äkta Explorer but these older systems used to
have dedicated control cards.
Is the card also damaged? It is perhaps cheaper to purchase a used PC
with PCI slots where you can plugin the card. Obviously, you will need
to install the software and drivers.
If your disk is OK it might be possible to transfer the contents
directly to a new PC.
Hope this helps,
