Cara mematikan mode smart pada aspire3680


If this is about hard disk drive SMART (Self Monitoring) warning. Acer Aspire 3680 BIOS does not have an option to turn off this warning. Basically, your hard drive is dying and you need to replace it with a good working hard disk drive because sooner or later your hard disk drive will stop working. You can clone your hard disk drive using an hdd cloning utility such a Farstone Clone Drive.

I get a message on my ACER Aspire Laptop7551 Series, which says Enter HDD User Password. What do I do?


Well, obviously someone has put a password lock on the hard drive and if it wasn't you and you don't know who it was or know the password your only option is going to be to replace the hard drive. There are places that can unlock a drive but you have to prove to them that is yours and they are expensive. Cheaper to just replace the HD

Boot problem


There are three possible options ranging from free (if you are not afraid to open your laptop, locate and remove the bios battery) to $170 (for a new hard drive and a cloning kit).

Option 1: Here is a copy of an email from Acer Support:
Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. In order to have the BIOS or hard disk password removed (This include any biometric security), the notebook will need to come in to our repair depot for password removal. This service is not covered by warranty and unfortunately there is no other recourse to remove a BIOS or HDD password from the notebook. The flat fee for BIOS password removal is $100.00 US dollars plus tax. If it is a BIOS or HDD password and you would like us to service it for you, please contact our telephone technical support line at 1-800-816-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-9pm CST Monday-Friday and 8am-5pm CST Saturday and Sunday, excluding holidays.

Option 2: Resetting an Acer BIOS Password Using Hardware.
If you cannot boot the Acer and don't want to send your computer back to Acer for an unknown amount of time, you can try to reset the BIOS password via hardware.
Tech FAQ Forum members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

Option 3: Possibly resetting BIOS Password using Hard Drive Upgrade Kit and a new Hard Drive.
A colegue told me that he used a hard drive upgrade kit and during the cloning process the hard drive password was erased. He can not recall providing the password when he booted from the bootable cloning CD provided with the Kit and when he replaced the hard drive with the cloned one and botted the laptop, the hard drive password was gone! He had to go into bios to manually enter a new hard drive password.
The kit he used was about $50 - APRICORN EZ-UP-UNIVERSAL 2.5" USB 2.0 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit - Retail. He paid for a bigger hard drive separately, but he just needed bigger hard drive (and found out about the password erasure by accident).

Bypass HDD password


From what I understand, the hard drive can be set with a password so the drive can't be used in any other computer or even opened if stolen. It is different from windows or bios passwords, and no password unlocker can open it.

You need to call the manufactor of the pc, and have all the information about the computer handy so it can be proven you are the legal owner. They are the only ones that I know of that might be able to reset or disable the HD password.

Don't have HDD passwords


To clarify the request, it is a harddrive password not a bios password or windows.

Unfortunately, there is no way to reset the HDD password.
The intention of an HDD password is that no one besides you have access to the data. It wouldn't make sense to be able to reset the password, so every thief would get the data.

If the computer is still under warranty, you may get a replacement drive. The locked drive is lost.
