Does this old pc have a cd/dvd drive?
I ask because I could send you the instructions, albeit a little technical, on how to boot to either a USB drive or CD drive and be able to extract the data from the drive. However if the old hard drive was encrypted, then the only way is to get into it is with the password. Just curious, have you tried passwords that were older than the most recent?
