Re: HP Pavillion 6704 help
one question, does the laptop display anything on the screen when you power it on?
now to answer your questions;
1: since something was spilled on it it could be the motherboard. The BIOS chip is located on the motherboard so broken motherboard = broken bios, broken bios=broken motherboard,either or.
The hard drive wouldent have anything to do with the problems your listing but it could still be broke depending on whether the liquid got to it or not.
Replacing a laptop motherboard is nothing like replacing a PC motherboard, in most cases you have to practically take the entire case off the laptop which isnt easy. but first you have to find a replacement motherboard.
2: yes, you can remove the hard drive ( assuming said drive isnt bust) and hook it up to your PC via an adapter which you could purchase from ebay, amazon ect ect ,nce you know the connection type of the drive in question. should you fix the laptop there are also multiple ways to connect it to a PC, USB connections, wireless connections Even serial connections are possible, all manor of things, but first you have to fix the laptop.
