Take the harddrive out and use a usb cradle?
Yup easiest way is to use a 2.5 ide or sata usb enclosure.

ebay have them for quite cheap.
Thanks so I will be able to access all the data then? even on C drive? it's not encrypted etc?
If it's a SATA drive, it should be possible to connect it straight into a desktop PC with a spare SATA connector and get the data off that way. Hope you get it sorted OK. Good luck.
that's correct, it will be a external hard drive, you'll be able to see all the data.

you can get a cheap enclosure for £3
Easiest way is to plug it into a desktop using sata.

For that you need to make sure the PSU has a sata power connector as well or you'll have to buy a converter from IDE to SATA power adapter.

That is if the hard drive is a sata.
