Accessing HDD when OS won't boot on a laptop?

I have a laptop that won't start up in Windows anymore. What can I use to access the HDD to back up the files from the laptop if I can't access the OS.

You will need to remove the drive out, buy a usb enclosure or adapter that you can connect the drive to other system, access it, and copy data off.

hihi,

before you are off to buy a USB enclosure or adapter, be sure to note whether your harddisk is a SATA or IDE type..... it would be a waste if you bought the wrong connector type....
