OK so last night i was having problems shuttin my comp down so i jsut hit the switch and went to bed.
I go to turn on my comp and it says SYSTEM DISK Failure or somethin like that, basically it doesnt find the boot files on my harddrive now, great. I tried puttin in my xp cd and when i got repair console it says theres no harddrives detected. So i took out my harddrive and put it in my USB drive case and then plugged the drive into my laptop via usb. It works fine now and i can see my whole drive but when i go to access "My Documents" i get "Access Denied"

I have about 7 gigs worth of files music pictures etc in "my documents" and i really need to get this back, theres a good 4 years of stuff in there.

All my password certificates should still be intact so is there any programs i can use to get my files out?
its not like i forogt my password but i jsut cant enter my password to get the files.


Can i somehow put my windows CD in my laptop and jsut transfer files from the CD directly to the harddisck via usb to maybe make it boot up again? kind of like a hard reinstall
