My motherboard died on me. I bought a new different one but, obviously i cannot get windows to start. I plugged the HDD on another PC to copy all the important data to another disk so i can format and install windows again.

The thing is, how to i open the "my documents" folder of a user account i had that is password protected?

PS: I obviously know the password.

Did you try to boot into Safe Mode with the old version of Windows installed on the mobo. If you can get into Safe Mode uninstall all the drivers. I've been able to boot into Windows with a new mobo but I uninstalled all the drivers before I did it

windows xp security is just too lamme... you can override with just some clicks in your mouse... do it when you feel the need to do it... and in a system fail you know you can acess the data.
