Before I start off, my laptop is a Hp Pavillion 6000 laptop. A couple of weeks ago, my laptop apparently went out of commission when the ac adapter for it stopped working [that is to say, the part that goes directly into the computer detoriated over time and eventually burned out. It occasionally sparked which would have caused some fire hazards, but it’s no longer able to give power to the laptop]
At first, I thought it was just the power cord not working or the fact that I needed a new laptop battery, but then I tried running it with a spare ac adapter without the battery and it doesn’t work. I am now considering options if my laptop is truly bricked.
I am wondering if there is a way to remove the hard drive from the laptop or extract data from the hard drive because that hard drive has some data that I won’t be able to replicate by simply getting a new computer
