my laptop died, can I recover encrypted files from my hard drive?

froztbyt
My lap top (acer aspire 5630, windows vista) died and I'm not sure if I can get it working again. Some of the files are encrypted and where not backed up yet, are they gone forever?

      Find another computer of the same make & Model and fit your existing HDD to that and then boot as you did your now dead NB.

      Or of the data is Important you can take it to a Data Recovery Specialist who can break the Encryption and recover it that way.
