I am working on a laptop for a friend.  I have the hard drive
out and connected to my system via adapter.  I can see the
folder that she wants to save.  But when I try to open the
folder, I get a message, "F:\Documentsand Settings\angelique
is not accessible.  Access is denied."

I asked her and have the password, but I don't get a chance
to enter it when the hard drive is in my computer.

The problem is that her laptop won't boot.  It blue screens

reformat and load her laptop from scratch so that it was

It won't go into safe mode either.  So the problem is how
to copy the data before I wipe the hard drive....

Any help???
