  1. My laptop motherboard died so it has no power. I got a new laptop, but the old harddrive does not fit in the new laptop. How can I transfer my data from the old laptop to the new laptop? Is there a cable or something I can plug into the old harddrive to connect it to the new laptop? I'm desparate!
