First post on this board, yeah! OK, so the plug on the AC adapter of my old Compaq laptop broke off recently, and I couldn't find a replacement for anything under $100 (it was a $700 computer!). Rather than pay that much for a new adapter, I did the only logical thing -- I ordered a new laptop. However, I need to find a way to get all my stuff from the old HD onto the new one, and the old laptop doesn't turn on anymore as the battery is dead. The only thing I could think of off-hand is to buy a HD enclosure, but is there any other (free) solution? TIA.
