  1. Hi, Laptop had burning smell coming from it!! Unplugged and switched off. Now I find that I have burnt the motherboard. Laptop is that old anyway but is there any way I can save the hard drive to get use from it it has some sentimental stuff on it.

    Cheers
     
  2. Yup. The HDD is often taken out from a compartment under the laptop. Should be quite straight forwards.

    I'd google "how to take the HDD out of laptop xxxx"

    There will be instructions, and possibly a video on youtube.
     
  3. I paid £5 for a converter/PSU that converts any connection to USB. Easy.

  8. Seriously? Who doesn't have the ability to use the interent from their phone nowadays.
