I need help please! My laptop met with a rather unfortunate accident - my fist and the screen did not get along at all and one thing led to another and .. well .. the screen doesn't work too well anymore. It was an ancient, hand-me-down monstrosity on perpetual slow mo ... it was in very much need of an upgrade anyways!! My problem: The HDD has a lot of information on there that i need access to. I have a home pc. Is there any way to just plug the HDD into my pc and access/copy the information stored on there? Or do i need to tweak certain settings / turn off the machine etc. before plugging in any new device? I know nothing.. so please speak in laman terms when giving suggestions I think there is some sort of docking station and i can buy, but since this is a one-off i don't want to have to purchase it if there is a simple less expensive solution out there. Your help is very very much appreciated.. thanks !!
