Using Ubuntu to get to a Windows Laptop
I have a friend's laptop running Windows, either Vista or 7 where the video subsystem isn't working. The laptop monitor doesn't come up. I tried another monitor, and it comes up and then just stops, no video. But it is running and I plugged it into my network/router. The hard drive is working, but no video. Since she is a basic user, file sharing and remote access is not turned on. I would like to get to the hard drive to get files off. I have both Linux and Windows 7 on my computer. Is there anything in Linux that would allow me access to the hard drive so that I could pull files off? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

By far the simplest solution is to pull the hard drive and install it into another machine.
