hp laptop hd files recover

by aariciamoreno / June 20, 2013 1:02 AM PDT

Hello guys,
my hp g6 1020ss's fan stoped working and now I don't know how to recover my info in the hdd. If I try to turn it on it gives a message that a fan wasn't detected and it shots down; I called HP support and they replace my fan but format my hdd and so I need to recover the files my own way. Could you help me out? I kow with PCs' hdd i can connect them externally and access to the files from another pc or laptop, but I have no idea how to get to my laptop's hdd to access and copy the files somewhere else Sad
I would really appreciate any help you can give me!

Look for the service manual

And how to get the HDD out. Since I get a call on this a lot I own a cable to hook up all sorts of drives. Here's the one I own -> http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=2020

There are many like that so with this I attach the HDD then plug the USB port into my good PC to copy out the files.
