Can anyone explain to me, how i can install a HD on my laptop, what i would like to do is:
Open up my damaged HD and take out the Hard drive Storage Memory and install it on my laptop to see if i can recover some data out of it.
Hope this is clear.
Thanks for anyone helping here.

What you want to do is nor clear. It sound like you want to 1) Replace defective Hard Drive and 2) Do Data recovery on the defective one. If this is correct then replacing the defective one is straight foward. As for data recovery buying a hdd enclosure and puting the defective one in it and pluging it up to a working system is your best bet.... if you have lots of money then sending it out to a data recovery firm would be your next step.
