Need Help Accessing Files
About two weeks ago my laptop accidently got pulled to the floor. This was not by me and right now I don't care who did it I just need to some how fix it. Anyway, I got a 2.5" disk USB adapter today so that I can at least access my files. It seems I can access everything on the drive except for what I really need, which is access to my folder in My Documents.
It seems that because of the access rights on the folder I can't access it unless of course I log in under my account. I am trying to do this on a school computer so I can't simply create my account and log in through that. Is there anyway that you can authenticate yourself to access protected files?
While I'm asking for help I might as well ask about the laptop itself. It was still running and seemed functional when I found it. I decided to restart it though because I had been trying to install software to it and before I left it I had just changed some settings. Well it shutdown and never started up again. I opened it up and tried resoldering a component down but still nothing. The only other symptoms, other than not working, is that there is a clicking sound coming from the motherboard when powered and the charge/power light doesn't come on when the laptop is plugged in.
The laptop is a HP Pavilion 4200, AMD Athlon 2200+, etc.
Thanks for any help.
