Check the bottom of the laptop there should be two panels with screws. One bigger than the other. The smaller one is for ram. The bigger one is the hard drive. Unscrew carefully and take the panel off. The carefully unplug the hard drive. Check support.dell.com for further assitance or check the users manual, the info is there.

No. However, if you remove the hard drive, it can be used as a regular hard drive in a computer.

You can easy install a new hard drive into your Dell Desktop PC. The procedure for replacing/installing a hard drive varies based on the respective models and on the other hand it is critically important which generation of hard drives is actually compatible with your Dell desktop either an IDE or a SATA.

No...absolutely not. You can remove all sources of power to a PC and the hard drive will retain all information saved on it. You could even go so far as to remove the hard drive from the PC (always with caution and extreme care) and hook it up as a slave to another PC and still view files saved on that hard drive.

You'll have to remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to another working computer, laptop or desktop PC. You can use IDE adapter for laptop hard drives - for connecting it to a desktop computer. You can use external USB enclosure for laptop hard drives for connecting it either to a desktop or laptop computer. You'll find instructions for removing the hard drive in Dell service manuals, they are available for download from the Dell website. Follow links for more information about IDE adapter and external USB enclosure.

If you first remove the drive from the PC, you can purchase an adapter which allows you to connect it to a USB port on your PC and read the contents of the drive like you would a USB flash drive. It's referred to as an IDE/SATA to USB adapter.

A hard disk that is inside your own PC as opposed to a hard drive you are accessing on a network, that would be in another PC somewhere else.

If the hard drive is formatted so that the operating system on the other PC can see it and read it you can plug it into the PC and drag the files onto the PC's hard disc.

yes but for a mac you don't have to format hard drives... so if you were to put a mac hard drive into a PC you would have to reformat it, I'm not completely sure how to do that

There are a wide variety of brands and models that can be used as a hard drive in a PC. The best way to see which one is in a given PC is to open it up and look.
