Have you already asked your sister on the HDD password that she had set on the laptop before she gave it to you? Only your sister may know it since she was the owner of the laptop before.

Hi, my sister gave me her old Panasonic CF-w5, however she can't remember her Log-in password and she don't have the original disk, please help thank you.


Download windows OS from Microsoft and save it as an ISO. Boot from it and install a fresh OS. Don't forget to load the Panasonic drivers!

I forgot my hdd password and cant get into it is there a way to get passed it please help me


There are companies that will open your hdd for you at a fee but there will be no data on it as it is all encrypted.
Purchase a new hdd, install your OS and programmes on it and never forget your password again.

When i turn my d257 acer aspire one on it goes to blue screen asking for a password, or it either goes to a screen that says no boot disk


No Boot disk found - usually indicates the HDD is not located.
so you need to validate the HDD is inserted properly, and locked into the HDD slot. securely,
Blue Screen asking for password, could mean several things,
basically you need with both errors, take to a good Repair Tech and have this looked into... PASSWORD can be either for BIOs or HDD,
or the system went into LOCKED MODE and password is needed to UNLOCK it.

D525 hdd password forgotten---frozen


The hdd password is stored in the firmware of the hdd, not in the bios. There is only two options available.
1/ type the password.
2/ purchase a new hdd as it is totally unformattable in that condition.

My dell inspiron 6000 asks for an system autentication password


If you are getting a Grey and white screen asking for a BIOS or HDD master password, you'll need to contact Dell Tech support for a Master Password (USA 800-624-9896) confirm you are a authorized user and then you can get a master password. If out of warranty, a fee may be charged. If a HDD password and you are getting a prompt of ***********-595B then the HDD is bad and will need to be replaced

Hdd password frozen on laptop These both worked. Thanks much to Eddie333 and howarthjd2. What I ended up doing was this: Note- I was not replacing the HDD, merely trying to reinstall WindowsXP, which...


if you download the sata drivers from the toshiba website for your specific laptop and then extract them and get nlite ( www.nliteos.com and slipstream the drivers into the xp disc you can then re install xp and it should allow you to boot.

As for the hard drive frozen password that should be in the bios on the hard drive that you set it for so it should remember it

if not you may have to contact toshiba and they should have a back door password that they can produce once you give them the asset tag ( serial number of the laptop ) and once you enter that it should resolve the hard drive frozen issue.

Had a hard drive frozen at a school once and had to call dell ( as it was a dell laptop obviously ) and gave them the serial number and they created a back door password for me - jobs a good one :D

HDD Master passwords generally disable access to the HDD altogether. I used to be a Toshia technician and if you wanted to get rid of the HDD master Password, you needed to get a new HDD. It is recommended that you take the laptop to your local service repairer for that brand, and they may be able to use a workaround or use a backdoor password, but I wouldn't hold out that hope.

The other option is to get your sister to reset the HDD master password.
