Hi Everyone..I am new here. My computer( A Dell Dimension C521) died while I was working on it. Bunch colors came on screen and just went off. Later I was told the motherboard is fried. I took the hard drive out and connected to an adapter then to a laptop. Now I see the drive and it says 65gb free of 280gb but when I click on the drive it says "you do not have permission to access the drive'. I tried changing my 'administrator privileges' but it is not letting me do it. I cannot copy and paste the drive to the laptop's desktop or to a folder. Does this mean my hard drive is failed?
Can anyone give some directions towards accessing my drive? Thank you for your help... Raj.
P.S.,- Hard drive is a Western Digital Internal drive.
