Does anyone know the name and size of the hard drive enclosure for an HP Pavilion DV5000? I have a SATA Wire enclosure and a regular SATA Wire but neither fit the prongs on my XP hard drive. Please help me understand what I need to extract the files from this hard drive. (The prongs have two rows, unlike the newer hard drives)

The drive is a PATA (Parallel ATA) drive, nowadays referred to simply as an IDE drive to distinguish it from a SATA drive.
So you need an enclosure which accepts an IDE or PATA hard drive.
You are wonderful, thank you very much! I have my xp drive out of the laptop but had a hard time finding the enclosure.
