Laptop HD is done....

Aight quick question can I hook up a external HD to the laptop and retrieve my data out from my old HD or how do I go about getting my data out of my old HD?

You can get a laptop HD enclosure that connects via the USB port(s).

And I wouldn't use the lappy until you do get the data off. If your HD is on the way out, every spin could be its last.
