You can extract the data taking out the HD and stick it into an USB enclosure that you can plug in any PC or your new laptop

Asunto: [Ma-linux] Compaq Laptop Problems
I have a Compaq Presario C500 laptop that has seen better days.
Currently even the power connection is not working anymore. The battery is dead, but, with a good power connection, I could charge it up. I was able until recently to power up the laptop by jiggling the cord connection to the laptop. Now I can't even do that.
Other problems include a somewhat busted hinge and a few vertical lines across the screen. As I said, the laptop has seen better days.
I would like to have a working laptop.
What are my options? Replace said laptop? Get it repaired someplace? Get a used, refurbished replacement? If I do replace the laptop, how can I get files off said laptop? Could someplace slip in a battery temporarily to help start up the laptop and then transfer files?
Money is a very important factor currently. It might not be forever, but it is now.
