How can I get files from my computer when the computer will not start?

Q: My Macbook will not charge. I dropped it and the power port is jammed so i cannot plug a charger in. Is there any way I can pull a file off of this computer even though the battery is dead?

    Your best bet is to take the hard drive out and put it in an external hard drive enclosure. This will allow you to connect it to another computer and pull the information off of it.

    If you are uncomfortable with this it might be a better idea to bring it to a local computer repair shop and have them pull the data off of it for you.
