1. The laptop HDD (presumably 2.5" SATA) has suffered a hardware
failure. It had one or more partitions with LUKS containers, and one or
more had LVM.
2. You have a backup of the data on another HDD (presumably 3.5" SATA)
in your desktop computer.
3. Your desktop motherboard has suffered a hardware failure.
1. One or more of:
a. Get another motherboard (CPU and/or RAM) for your desktop and
get your desktop working again.
b. Build another desktop/ workstation/ server and move the backup
HDD into it.
c. Get a USB external enclosure for your backup HDD.
2. Get another hard drive for your laptop, do a fresh install of your
favorite OS (or restore an image), and restore your data.
