Transferring Info from Laptop to PC

My laptop has died and the power input socket at the back is kaput. I have a crossover cable but I am unable to transfer files as I have no battery power on the laptop. Apart from buying or borrowing a charged battery or getting the power input socket fixed do you have any ideas what I might do.

Also, is there an easy way to transfer all my favourites on IE to my pc?

Thanks in advance.

You'll probably need to remove the hard drive from the laptop, and maybe even have to purchase a caddy, with a USB connector, so you can put the drive into that, and then plug that into the PC.

Also when you go to internet explorer, you go to favourites, and import - then you just select the favourites folder which will be on the laptop (external) drive now. That's how it used to be done anyway, not used IE for 3 years.
Take the hdd out of your laptop and get a caddy for it, then you can just plug it into a usb port on your pc.
To transfer your IE favs just copy them from the favourites folder in C:\Documents and Settings\username to the same place on your pc.
Depending on the type of hard drive in the laptop, you could use one of these:
This works well and has external power:

Description is wrong, as it DOES NOT support 1.8" drives, but is ok for 2.5 & 3.5's.
Hope it helps :)
