RIP my laptop

My laptop died. I'm really pissed off cos I lost a lot of stuff I hadn't backed up.
I'm annoyed with microsoft and myself equally.

could you pull the hard drive out, put it into an external enclosure, hook it up to another computer and recover your files?
Or is the hard drive completely busted :-(

My condolences.. My (dumbass) dog once jumped up on our coffee table and spilled a large mug of coffee with milk into my Macbook Pro, which promptly died (mac, not dog..).

I got my data off the disk in the end though. See if you can find someone who has an enclosure or dock you can put the disk(s) in?

Thanks guys.
Had already tried that. Well not me, IT support at work. They had it for 3 days and couldn't fix it - none of them had seen anything similar before.
Physically, it's fine, so i can rebuild it, but I will lose all my stuff, family photos for the last 3 years, skate clips (I only started filming when i joined here, so not too much of that), work files etc.
I am on my work pc now, and am not really a fan of using that for this site. but it will do.
I'll also have to figure out how to record, edit and post my skating here without my laptop.

Back on the laptop.
Lost all my skate clips (except the ones in the recycle bin!). They weren't that good anyway and I can always refilm.
Anyway, it's good to be back.

I hope you got yourself a back up drive for around £50 so you don't lose your data again. You can never have enough back ups. I don't use the Cloud but its another option.
