Yes it is possible depending on what kind of hard drive your laptop had. If it was just SATA, then just hook it up to your PC (assuming that it has SATA) like you would with a normal SATA drive. Pretty simple.

If it was an IDE drive, then you'll need just an enclosure

Regardless of whether the laptop HDD is IDE or SATA, you can find an internal or external adapter for it at NewEgg (among other retailers).

If you're simply trying to extract information from it, I recommend getting a USB adapter with IDE, ATA-6 (notebook IDE), and SATA connectors so you can read virtually any IDE or SATA drive.
