I'd get a power supply and set it up as a network server for a shared terabyte-or-larger disk drive and/or a printer, and/or plug it into my stereo system and use it as a jukebox machine. (In fact I have an old laptop which has spent most of its time doing exactly that, though I've occasionally used it for other server and communications tasks.)

You can also get notebook power supply's really cheap on E bay.

If you get it working and you have a younger brother or sister you could give it to them. Undying gratitude probably will not be the reaction you get, but at least you made a gesture.
