Default recovering Hard Drive

My motherboard failed.
How do I get my data off my laptop's IDE hard drive without spending a fortune?

Default Re: recovering Hard Drive

hook it up as a slave on another computer or buy an external usb case for it.

You do need an adapter.
something like this.
Notebook Hard Drive to Desktop Adapter (2.5" to 3.5")

Or an enclosure like this.
2.5" USB 2.0 Aluminum Hard Disk Drive Enclosure Case
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
