Something like this SATA/IDE to USB adapter which I own has come in very handy from time to time, lets you run your HDD from a dead PC on your working PC through the USB port. The link leads to Amazon, I didn't search for the best buy or product. That is the one I have.

You should see the same file structure as you had originally; so tracking down documents shouldn't be that difficult. Then just copy them across to other PC.
