Is there any way to use a PC hard drive with a laptop using leads etc.

Yes, all you need is a USB Hard-drive Enclosure.

My laptop hard drive has broken, so could I use this option instead of buying a new Laptop hard drive?

but it would rather defeat the object of a laptop - that it is easily portable - and probably wouldn't cost all that much less than buying a new laptop drive anyway. You can get a 2.5" IDE drive for around £37:00

As stated in your previous posting Windows is designed not to run from an external drive.
