  1. Do not boot off from laptop HDD, since the drivers on there, are not compatible with your PC.
  2. If you want to use it, hook it up as data drive, to access the drive.
  3. If you can not access the drive even as data drive, the drive is dead.
  4. But if you need to get data off from it, contact data recovery firm.

This means that the HDD is dead.

but will using a usb to sata will make it work?
I'd say: No.

and also what is the black screens by the way.
When black screen appears?
  1. When you try to boot off from HDD?
  2. Or when you have it hooked to the system as data drive?
But black screen usually means that PC wasn't able to get all of the connected hardware to work, hence the "freeze" with black screen.
