I have two laptops but I think one has a virus or malware because it won't boot. Is it possible to link my other laptop to it to extract files from the bad laptop's drive?

You can remove the laptop drive and place in a caddy and connect via USB
However there is a chance of transferring the virus to the other machine.

You may be better booting the machine from a virus rescue CD such as click here
