So, I am back from Eastercon, and trying to sort out my computer problems. The netbook screen worked again briefly yesterday, but has now gone back to trying to emulate a Damien Hirst spin painting. I have successfully extracted the hard drive, which is fine. Most of the data is easily recoverable. I have it attached to my laptop now. However, the data files for my email are on a part of the disc that Windows 7, in its wisdom, has password protected. Of course I know the password, but I haven’t got a clue how to access it. A little web research will now follow, but if that doesn’t work the email will have to wait until I get back to Somerset tomorrow and can attach an external screen to the netbook.
