Default Swapping Out Hard Drives

Hello. I have a serial ata hard drive from my Compaq laptop, that died last week, that I would like to use on my Gateway GT5662 Desktop computer. They both have Windows Vista. Is there an easy way to swap out the Gateway HD and use the Compaq HD? Or at least get the files from the Compaq HD and transfer it to the Gatewat HD? Thanks for any advice.
