Like, passwords stored in your web browser? Or actual passwords for network connections? – Tortoise Nov 4 '12 at 23:52
Do you still have the old laptop? If so, just download Cain & Abel on it and dump your passwords. – cutrightjm Nov 4 '12 at 23:55

You can access the WEP/WPA passwords for your wireless network connections by doing the following:

  1. Open the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel
  2. Click Manage wireless networks in the left-hand menu
  3. Right-click a connection and click Properties
  4. Go to the Security tab
  5. Check Show characters to reveal the network password
