You are able to use an external hard drive as your main drive but you will need to boot it at startup. If you need more help then just ask

Depending on your definition of "died" you can get a recovery cd that can boot your computer and attempt a recovery of the drive or at least your files. If the drive is dead booting from an external drive or even a usb memory stick will depend on the age of the laptop.
You will need to check the bios to see what options you have to boot from. you could replace the internal drive with a small second hand drive and use a larger external drive for storage.

Compaq Evo N610c No internal sound


No, you need not to install soud/audio driver if its work with external speakers. Its seems that the internal speaker of your laptop has got damaged. So you shuld call your vendor for service. If you are in warranty it will be free for you.

This problem look LCD cable problem. You might need to check the LCD cable conecctions to the Motherboard and to the LCD if it is lose or broken.

You can connect an external monitor. If it displays, the video card is fine.
