I have a computer that I took out its hard drive from and hooked up it up as external drive to a different computer.

How can I check the internet explorer/chrome browsing history?

The history for IE is stored %appdata\..\Local\Microsoft\Windows\History

Chrome's history is stored here
%appdata%\..\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

Export the history SQLite files to a already installed chrome folder as the same and open chrome and look at the history.

strugglingalong--There is freeware called History Viewer that should allow you to see what sites have been visited.

Another approach is to go directly to the index.dat file in Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5  (Content.IE5 and its index.dat file are hidden files and you will need a viewer to read index.dat.
