Laptop to Desktop hardware compatibility?
Hi! I'm curious about how compatible hardware is from laptops to desktops. What I mean is, how much of the hardware is interchangeable, if you know what you're doing? I'm still a novice, but I do know what I'm doing for the most part. I have three questions.
I was wondering if it was possible to use an inbuilt webcam from a laptop, with a desktop pc.
My laptop was a Toshiba Satellite A505. It had Windows 7. The laptop was completely useless, so it was no skin off of my back to take it apart.
I successfully removed the webcam and mic. They were built into the top of the screen.
What I would like to do is hook that up with an HP Pavillion p6000 desktop. I'm using an older monitor, however. It's a Samsung SyncMaster 570V tft.
I'd love to know if this is compatable, and if so, how I would go about doing that?
I took the RAM chips out of the laptop. Same laptop, same desktop.
Are they compatable at all? And if so, how?
I have the hard drive from the laptop. I want to attempt to rescue my files before I destroy the hard drive. Am I able to do this, as well?
I'm mostly looking for a yes/no answer. If I could get linked to some sort of tutorial, that would be fantastic.
This is my first time OWNING a desktop in quite a long time. I've worked with them over the years, but for a few years now, I've only owned laptops.
I know what's what inside of a desktop, but as I said, the last one I owned was an e machines that ran on windows xp.
Going into too much detail, sorry.
