    The mother board on the computer went bad, Windows XP had a password protect on it. I tried to take out the hard drive from the broken computer, and make it an external drive. However, I am having a hard time getting the files off the hard drive. I can not open the user folder. Please, someone help me to get the files off the hard drive.



    Thanks

    It has nothing to do with a user password. Can you see the folders you want to open? What happens when you try? Home or Pro?
