Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

Found Compaq Pressario in Trash Today - is it worth getting fixed

New york city is great - found a Compaq Pressario in the garbage and wanted a 2nd laptop for my house. 
Is it worth seeing if it works - who can I send it to?  I need to buy a power cord and could someone technical enough bring it back to life.
All looks good except I couldn't open DVD player but maybe b/c battery is dead.
How old is this model and what's the value - or is this a DUD?
Has windows XP.
Thanks and if there is someone on here in Manhattan / Queens NY I'd be happy to give you business if it's not too much $$$

Start with buying a universal charger from an electronics store.

See if it will turn on. If not, it may not be worth keeping.

Sell it on ebay for parts if thats the case.

Sound driver

You haven't listed the exact model but if you go to this site you will be able to find it

Go to 'get support' at the top the page, then select 'software and driver downloads' and enter the model of your laptop. You will be able to browse the exact model of your laptop, then choose Windows Vista and the audio driver will be listed normally at the top.

This is what I found for the Presario c700cto:

Hope this is a good enough solution for you!!
