Hi Georges,

Your question was in Dutch, but I will answer it in English, because most users of this forum have better understanding of that language.

In short, your laptop died because of a mother board failure and you would like to move the data from the laptop internal hard disk to your PC.

This is possible, but unfortunately you cannot use the USB port of your laptop. When the mother board is broken, you can run the software that is needed to communicate via this port.

There are two solutions. One solution is taking out the harddisk from your laptop and put it in your PC. A simple copy operation can copy all data from the laptop disk to your PC disk. There is one problem however and that is that most laptops disks are 2.5" in size, and the normal PC disk cable doesn't fit. Adapters can be bought for a few euro at many computer stores that allow you to fit a 2.5" harddisk to a 3.5" cable.

Another solution is to buy an external housing for your laptop disk. Many housings are sold for 2.5" size disks. These housings have an USB connection and this makes it possible to connect your harddisk directly to the USB port of your PC. Even after the data is transferred you can decide to keep using the laptop harddisk as an external backup device for your PC. Or just as extra storage room for pictures, music, films and other large amounts of data that don't fit on your internal PC harddisk.
