    Sorry but I'm a bit confused. Does your laptop boot up at all? If it does you can connect an external USB drive and utilize a freeware backup utility.

    If it doesn't you can remove the drive and put it into a USB enclosure (~$15) and then connect it to the USB port of another PC.

  2. Your answer is very helpful and now I figured out the problem.
    Thanks a lot.
