So my HP Compaq Presario 2100 is completely and utterly dead and cannot be resuscitated. However, there are somethings on my hard drive that I'd like to get. Anybody have any ideas as to how I can do that? Is there someplace I can take it to that can access the hard drive? Thanks so much!

You need to pull out the hard drive and get a laptop hard drive to usb adapter and plug it into another computer to copy and paste the files you want onto the other computer.
Here is the manual:
Removing the hard drive is shown on pages 2-9 to 2-10
Here is the kind of adapter you need:
With an external box like this you can use the drive as a portable storage drive after you remove the files you want or keep them stored on the old laptop drive.
