If you just need the data, just buy a hard drive case and put the hard drive in it.

Or the numbers on the battery, specifically the battery model number.
 Quoting: Mwalk


She needs the laptop model number for that link....not the battery model.
Battery model / number won't tell her crap about what to buy.
 Quoting: Burt Gummer

The battery model number is one method i used to find a stand alone battery charger, so no, you are wrong. I have already done this for myself.
 Quoting: Mwalk


On that website?

Me thinks not. spank

Buy an external hard drive enclosure like this one [link to www.newegg.com] , get the laptop drive out (shouldn't need to do more than to remove some screws at the bottom to open the drive bay) and pop it in the enclosure, connect to another computer and you can recover the data.

Getting the laptop power port fixed will either require some soldering or a whole new motherboard (depending on the damage done), which won't be cheap.

It was having fan issues and overheating then my dear husband dropped it off the sofa.
 Quoting: Chargetard 28641038


Get a better husband I would never do such a retarded thing.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28378701


Very same husband who though he could burn the oil in the glades plug ins in the oil burner. That was an interesting night. But every retarded man needs a good wife to make sure warranties are included in big purchases ;) an to keep baking soda around for fires lol

And forget the warranty unless Toshiba would fix it for free, which they probably wouldn't.

the sticker generally doesn't cover the little door over the hard drive. so:

* find out computer make and model

* look on internet for "how to change hard drive for <computer make and model>"

* get an external USB laptop-size hard drive enclosure

* remove hard drive and put it in enclosure

* plug enclosure into working computer

* copy data

* put hard drive back in computer

* take computer in for repair

* NEXT TIME DO PROPER BACKUPS OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA AT SOME STAGE AND THERE WILL BE NO WAY TO RECOVER IT

Ok I'm going to save all that because it seems easy enough with some research. Thanks a ton! I was just looking at these from the link posted previously. Something I was wanting to invest in anyways.

And yes I know I was stupid for not backing things up. I have almost everything on CDs in a safe place, just a few things that were recently put on there I need to get. Mostly pictures I had stored to clean camera memory card. *sigh*

Anyways thanks for laying it out for me, it helps! Lol
