Hey all, I am brand new to this forum and dealing with the internals of computers. Please bear with me. I have a really old eMachines (2000-2002) that just recently took a dump. It would no longer power on at all. So I went to the store and got a power supply, and for the first time ever took the side panel off of the tower. After switching the bad power supply for the good one, the CPU powered right up. However, I had no video output which led me to belive that my video card is bad. My next step was to return the power supply and get an IDE hard drive enclosure that I picked up at a locally owned computer shop. I hooked up the enclosure to my laptop and let kaspersky go to work on all the viruses and what not I knew had to be on there from that way that thing had started acting over the years. Once completed I went to retreive the information (twelve years worth of music, photos, ect.) that I cared about. upon opening Music, the folder was empty, pictures was that same case. So then I found Jims Share Drive (IIRC) that had a large file size. I guess that's where all my stuff is, but when I try to open the file I get told that I don't have the privledges. I never put a password up or anything. Is there any way to bypass this so I can access my stuff. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Also, I hope I didn't ramble too much.
