You can remove the hard drive and connect it to a desktop PC or another laptop as long as the connectors match. The hard drive might be damaged since the laptop didn't boot but you can try. You'll probably have to move data manually and re-install all your programs on the new device. There are adapters to connect IDE (PATA) and SATA hard drives thru USB too.
