Transfer hard disk between two laptops
  

I have a Dell Inspiron 4100 laptop. I plan to transfer its hard drive on another laptop. Is this feasible? After all, it only corresponds to a simultaneous change of motherboard, video card, network card, modem card. I hesitate before I start this brilliant attempt. If anyone has advice, I'm interested.

There would have been that, but in your case it will not work since your laptop is HS.

After regarding the data, you should be able to recover.

If it is to retrieve data, it is best to buy an external box to the proper format.
I do not know if it's SATA or IDE in your mobile.

I have actually no problem to recover the data with an external casing. But what I try to do is recover ALL, if possible at once, including the programs installed, secured access with key external and so on. Hence the idea of simply changing the hard drives. But with a totally different laptop, I wonder what it will give the boot. I have never tried such a thing.

It does not, in your hard disk should be Pata (IDE), or now they are all Sata.
