i have a gateway desktop model # gm5664 been sitting unused for a while and disconnected from power. I hook it up to power but there's no sound, no screen, nothing, not even the drives I don't think, but can retrive and open/close drive trays. Only thing it does sound or display wise is the fans kick in on high and stay that way.
Can some one help me? I'm trying to recover photos for a special family project for my grandma so any and all help is greatly appreciated.

[OS = Windows 10]

Buy a powered USB to sata adapter like this:
https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-Cable-Adapter-Converter-Support/dp/B00MYU0EAU
Remove the HDD and using the adapter plug it into a USB port on the laptop.
You need a powered adapter because a single usb port does not have the power to start a 3.5" HDD.

Be careful and put the hdd upside down on the table so the exposed parts have no chance of damage or a short.
If you want to use this on a long term basis, buy a USB to sata enclosure like this:
