Since both appear to be laptops, there will almost definitely not be cables for the data or power connection for the drive. Typically, for a laptop, the drive connections are connectors that are soldered to the motherboard, not cables.
Your best way to check the drives would be to pull the drive from the computer and the connect the drive to another working computer either internally as a secondary drive (typically easiest if a desktop) or externally with either a universal USB drive adapter, external USB drive dock, or an external USB drive enclosure. You then can see if the drive mounts and/or check it in the Disk Management program. If you don't have access to a working computer, then this option is not idea. Also, if you don't have something to connect the drive externally (or access to a desktop to hook up internally), then that would require purchasing something like a universal USB drive adapter, external USB drive dock, or an external USB drive enclosure.
The other option would be to get a live CD Linux version and see if the drives will show up in Linux. Since I have not used this option myself, I cannot offer a live CD version to suggest, but someone else probably will.
