Hi i recently broke the screen in my laptop. I had it hoked up to my tv as a screen but now the computer wont recognize my tv as a screen.(thinking some one might have turned off the option by mistake) Any way is there a simple way to use the hard drive in the lap top on my desktop be it internal or external. my lap top is about 3 years old and has lots of stuff on it i would like to save but my desk top dosnt have enough space to store it.

Product :Hp presario CQ60
OP : vista 32bit
Hd size : ???(cant remember)

You can get an external enclosure and slap the drive in it. Here are some examples.
