Hello to the forum. I have two HP laptops that bit the dust with the overheated Nvidia chipset problem. Both are out of warranty, and HP will not help. I would like to be able to salvage the contents of the hard drives. One was a dv6000, the other was a dv9700. I had repaired the dv6000 only two months earlier and installed Win 7 HP 64 bit. Is there any way to to get into this drive and remove info from the registry, or perhaps image it to another drive. Otherwise, I just gave Bill some extra cash.
