grounding an outlet

I hae two outlets almost back to back that are not grounded.
I have an old house (1922). The rest of the house is grounded, but I don't know why these two rooms were neglected. Anyway, I need to plug my computer into these plugs. They are currently 3-prong, but I did test them and they are not grounded.
What's the best way to do this. I have a crawl spacce underneath.

If I have to I will cut into the wall. "If I have to.

Thank you,
Old new house

Before you do anything open up those two receptacles and hopefully the receptacle that feeds those two receptacles and see if you have grounding conductors that either did not get connected or has a loose connection in the receptacle that feeds these to ungrounded receptacles or in the ungrounded receptacles themselves.

Let us know what you find
