How to access data of old laptop hard drive?

HP Pavilion Enternainment PC
Microsoft Windows Vista

Hello,

 

first timer here.

 

I have two old HP pavilion Enternainment PC of which either the monitor is broken or the grafic card was down. I can not use them anymore to get access to the content of there hard drives.

 

I was wondering, is there a connection cable/ port to which I could connect the hard drives and connect them to my current, HP laptop? Via USB cable or something? So I still could access the data saved on the hard drives?

 

Basically, can internal hard drives be made an external hard drive via a docking station of sorts? One hard drive is an Samsung 250 GB, model: HM250JI

 

Thank you for any insides to this :generic:

I guess I just found my answer in another post, just need confirmation.

 

Would a SATA to USB cable do the trick? Not sure how to find out if this hard drives are SATA?

 

Thank you,

You can buy an IDE to USB and a SATA to USB.

 

This is the one we use. "SATA"
