Hey,

So, recently my laptop had some sort of damage occur to its motherboard (I think), so Windows OS won't boot up. The computer still turns on.

The problem is I had a lot of data and stuff on that laptop's harddrive. Is there anyway I can extract the lost files, etc., from it? Anything I can buy that can recover the files?

-Thanks!

you can take the hdd out and put it in a external enclosure and connect it to another computer.

Wait, so... I take out the HDD, and I connect the external hardrive to the HDD? Could you explain more in depth please.
edit: nvm I think I figured it out.
