Question about Intel Motherboard
I took the hard drive out and hooked it up to another computer and can read the drive and see the contents but it will not allow me to move the files. It says that they are protected. I saw something about a security code on the motherboard that has to be changed to allow information to be removed from the hard drive. The power supply is good but her computer still will not run.
Remove the BIOS battery on the motjher board and unplug it ffrom the back and wait a few minutes to reset the BIOS. Its a watch battery on the system board, little smaller than a quarter. Once this has happened it should reset the password for the bios and you can boot into the bios on start up. ( usually the DELETE Key or F1 at the splash screen. Set the password or disable it entirely and you shouldnt have that problem anymore.
You could slave the drive to another computer and go into it like another drive on your computer, copy the files you need and then re-install the windows
