My old laptop (HP Pavilion dv1000) is basically destroyed. It has a screen with which you can see pretty much nothing on because of the crack. And it wont full boot in safe mode or in any other mode. I dont really care about the computer but would love to have the files on the hard drive. I was wondering if there is anyway I can just take out my HD and put it in something else to retrieve the files.
