Moving a working hard drive from one laptop to another

i have 2 Compaq Presario c700 laptops. One has a damaged screen and works when hooked into an external monitor. The other will not load windows and startup repair did not work. Can I move the hard drive from the beat up computer into the other one without damaging the working hard drive>.

    You can take out the working HDD and replace it with the broken one and try. It is most likely corrupt but it's worth a try.
