I need to recover all the data from a hard drive off a lap top which is broken, The drive itself is NOT corrupted or broken, but the screen and top lid are broken clear off so it wont boot due to the fact it is not connected to the top anymore.. Even if i connect a monitor to it. I would like to get all my music and pictures from it , thank you

your local computer shop should have something for you. if your in canada staples is a good bet.take your laptop hard drive with you and tell them what you want to do.

That laptop drive may just need a cable to hook it up to your desktop.


what kind of cable? sorry for asking just trying to figure out if i need this extneral case or just cables .. the picuters are of my children and i would hate to lose them all :(  I know i should have backed them all up and was planning to untill the laptop lid, and screen smashed and departed from the keyboard/main part of computer, leaving the this tail that obvioisly conencted something important to the lid to make it at least turn on

First of you need a S-ATA cable,
second you need another pc, desktop or laptop.
plug in the old hard drive on the other computer, go to your harddrives and simply copy all over to your other harddrive.
