A friend's notebook's graphics card has just gone fritz and won't allow you to see anything but complete garbage on the screen. Windows boots up fine, as can be heard from hard disk activity and the startup chime. The only problem is that I am completely blind...
As the machine was about to be replaced anyway, that would not be much of a problem, but there are files on that computer that are not back up anywhere (outlook.pst, and some others).
Is there a way to remotely access the XP home instance without having done any preparations before? I have an administrative user account at hand, but probably the "Administrator" account does not have a password (OEM XP Home).
Ideally I would be able to just mount the remote HD from another machine, or alternatively get access to it's desktop via remote desktop or similar to upload the data actively.
