Is there a way for me to access the data and files in the hard drive for the computer that stopped working?

For example Is there a way to connect the hard drive from the lap top onto some other universal connection? And is this what this is? http://www.bixnet.co...ahadrcoad.html?

Does this let me connect my laptop hard drive to the connections inside a desktop?

This is for a Dell Inspiron 7000 Laptop Notebook that I purchased a few years ago. Currently It does not power up.

It has been serviced by Dell once; and I assume they just sent me a refurbished. The screen display was amazing I would like to be able to salvage it if there is a way to.


I know it has win 98se


My 2 other computers are a Dell Dimension 4550 & Sony laptop ( just in case there is a way to use these 2 computers to get this solution)

Assuming that the computer that has stopped working is the laptop, then you need either an enclosure for a 2.5 drive, with a USB connector,http://www.bixnet.com/enfornohadro.html or an adaptor that allows you to connect it to a normal ide connection. either way, copying or moving the files will be an easy job.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
