:flowers: Hi there, I'm pretty good at computers, just not too good dissassembling them. I have two hardrives I need to figure out how to get out of the laptops I own (they don't power on and I'm sure I can get the hardrives out myself). They are HP dv9000, and a Compaq Presario v6000. My PC is a HP f1703 (yes, a little older but I've saved it from death quite a few times, hey I'm an EMT you know). I need to know first, how to CONNECT each Laptop hardrive to the PC. After I hook that up, where do I go from there? Do I run it in Start mode, leave my computer running, shut it off and turn on again, click on file/start/programs??? What do I click on to get those files to my PC. And, will this affect the other files on my PC that are already there when I hook up the laptop hardrives to the PC???

Thanks so much!!! :thumbsup:

Pull the hard drives out, hook them to a USB adapter and treat it like external storage.
