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  ?

As long as it is properly mounted to get good air flow, it shouldn't be a problem. The power is the same.
