You can unscrew and unplug the hard drive from you Inspiron 1525 laptop and install it into an external caddy enclosure that will allow you to connect the hard drive to a USB port on another computer. They are cheap. Here is a good one for $15.95

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
