Will an older hard drive work in a newer computer?

My hp laptops hard drive broke from the computer falling on the ground. I have a toshiba that's less a few years older, and the hard drive cables in my hp fit into the toshibas old hard drive. If I boot the computer will the info on that hard drive appear or will it just be unrecognized? I don't want to turn it on in fear of something weird happening. Any thoughts?

Yes, the hard drive will be recognized (it is compatible) but Windows won't boot because it was installed and configured to work with the hardware of the old laptop the hard drive came from. If you have a Windows install disc and you don't mind that all the existing files and data on the hard drive will be deleted (the formatting process deletes everything on the selected partition), you will need to start up from the disc, delete the existing Windows (C:) partition, make a new C partition, format this partition and reinstall Windows on it (the Windows install disc will guide you through the process). That is basically all you need to do to get that hard drive working and bootable on your HP laptop.
