External Pc Memory Slot
My motherboard just went out on my pc and I was wondering if there is something that I can hook up to my laptop that will let me read whats on my pc memory, kind of a external memory slot or something. I've been searching google for a few hours and I can't find anything and I know you guys always know what your talking about and answer very quickly. Any help would be appreciated.

Your actual data is not stored in the memory, its stored on the hard drive. And it's very easy to connect a hard drive to any other PC, there are many adapters for this.

Here's a version that simply connects a drive, either SATA or PATA(IDE) to a USB port without any enclosure: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812232002

Here's a version that basically converts the drive into an external drive that you can safely use that way: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817388017
This one only supports SATA hard drive with a connector like this: http://www.google.ca/imgres?hl=en&sa...0&tx=102&ty=76

More enclosures to choose from: http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCateg...nal-Enclosures

Yup, just marked it solved if it works

Also, these are carried in most computer stores as well if you want to buy locally.
