Easier way to pull data off nonworking Laptop

Dell Inspiron15 notebook
October 18, 2010 at 07:06:02
Specs: Windows 7
I have had some motherboard issues (everytime I plug in the power cord, the light turns off) on an old laptop. Long story short, I have a new laptop and I am confident that the harddrive of the old one is in fine condition.

I was curious if there was any way to directly connect my old laptop to my new one and access the harddrive? I know that I could physically take out the old harddrive and set it up as a slave, etc but I was hoping for an easier solution. If anyone knows of one, it would be greatly appreciated.

So you can or cannot turn on and access windows in the old laptop?

If not, you will need something like this:

The only way to access the contents of a hard drive is to have it attached to a working computer. There is no other way.
