A bit of help with partition mounting.

A bit of help with partition mounting.:

So my stepmom’s computer died recently, and I am trying to recover files from the hard drive by plugging it in to my computer running mint. Because it died while it was on, the cache files are still there and its treated as if it is in hibernation mode, and won’t let md mount, but tells me to mount as read only, which should be fine for data recovery. When I do so however, I can not get it to appear in the file manager. Is there a way to either get the read only mount viewable in the file manager, or get the partition to mount normally? Thank you

(and I can’t boot to it, for whatever reason, and my bios freezes when doing the POST test when the hard drive is plugged in on boot)
