    I’ve read the posts and information about how to recover the administrator’s password, but I haven’t seen any information on my problem, which is that my previous computer was destroyed by my ex. It will not turn on, boot up, etc.

    I would like to know how to access the information on that computer since I don’t remember the passwords.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Remove the hard drive and attach it to a working computer. If the drive is still in working order, you will then be able to browse the file structure.

    If the computer suffered physical damage and contained important information, I’d recommend having a qualified technician examine the drive. Attempting to access it without taking the right precautions could cause further damage.
