Old gateway computer wont turn on

I have an old..really old...gateway that I just wanted to backup the data from. I tried turning it on, but the power button still glows orange no matter how long I hold it. I havn't really turned the computer on for at least a year, so I'm wondering if its beyond all help? From the last time I turned it on it was working fine, no wierd noises just unbearably slow (and last time was a while ago). Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Take the hard drive out (it probably still has the OS on it), connect it as an external drive, and save the data from it.
