Default LAPTOP HDD in normal pc

Hi all
sorry for my english
my laptop is dead and i take from it the 500gb hdd drive
(The exact model is Toshiba 500GB MQ01ACF050 )
and i connect it to my regular computer

Everything works great at the moment

Whether it is a normal computer can damage a hard disk designed to work on a laptop?

Power problems, voltage, etc.?

Or can I continue to work normally with this laptop HDD on my pc ?

Yes it will work normally although most laptop HD’s are 5400 rpm so may be a bit slower than a normal HD it will work
