I have a Hp Pavilion 6000 which has gone black screen, have tried external monitor and everything else i could think of, the machine will just not work, I also have an Hp Pavilion 9000, I want to know if it is possible to pull the HDD from the 6000 and place it into the 9000, I want to do this so I can retrieve the clients files and burn them to a dvd, What would be the procedure for doing this if it is at all possible

I am not sure that it could be put in the other system as it is different, perhaps others can say on that matter. Typically it can not be done.

But, you can get an external case and put the disk in that, then attach it to another computer and access the files.

If your computer is less than 2 yours old, you would be in luck as HP has a special extended warrenty for your model. http://www.insidemyl...ut-of-warranty/
