That is my computer. The screen on my computer totally broke. I explain what the colors are in the picture. Do I have to worry about whats on my hard drive or can i just take the hard drive out when it finally quits.

Just replace the LCD screen, someone gave me their laptop that had a screen that was cracked, I bought a new one on ebay for 70 bucks, replaced it, reformated it with pirated windows 7 and the new office, and sold the laptop for 400 bucks

Do you think you would receive over 70 dollars for selling it if the screen was fixed? Do you know/could learn how to replace an LCD screen?

If the answer to both is yes then replace it, if the answer to both is no then take out your HD and buy a new comp

No, destroy it with fire. With computer sex (porn) comes viruses

Since no one seems to be answering his question, and since i have some knowledge in Computer science, ill answer.

You can take out the hard drive once you are finished. Since your laptop is not a stupid Mac, it should be easier to remove the Hard drive. However, if you wish to use your hard drive on another computer, the hard drive MUST be compatible. Most likely, this means that you must have the same type of laptop as your broken one. Otherwise, you have to buy some sort of custom adapter, as my friend does. What i have seen done in the past is someone who actually took apart the hard drive, removed the disks and put it on another hard drive in order to retreive the data, which can be done apparently, but i would not recommend it.

To answer your question, you should be fine to tke out the HD once it quits.
