Moving laptops

Simplest would be remove the hard-drive and put it in a USB enclosure, but if you had one you'd probably be doing that already. I've found cheaper ones unreliable, so if you're going to buy one check the reviews and err on side of better quality.

If disconnecting the keyboard doesn't work, perhaps a live Linux USB can get you in and might not care about Super key being permanently pressed.

BP speaks sense; but maybe first try removing the drive from both lappies and stick the old drive straight into the new one. It probably won't have the drivers to boot, but it'll take little time and do no harm to try.

I did write a fairly lengthy reply but seemingly the emoji after cheers excluded the rest of the message...
