The password was set by the hard drive owner. Nowadays hard drives can be encrypted and therefore locked and a unique password is required.

How do I add a second HD


Turn the machine off
Open the case
Look to see if there are IDE connector (Wide Flat cable with a connector usually grey)
If this is not present look for a SATA connector usually a small red or blue wire similar to a cat5e network cable
Scew your HDD in place in the rack connect the cable either IDE or SATA
If you have an IDE drive look for a 4 pin female connector from the power supply
If you have a SATA drive look for the connector from the power supply
Once all is connected then reboot you computer typically your bios should auto detect it.

Let me know what happens from here

Hi! It seems that your out of harddisk space. That's why your computer memory also maxed out because your computer memory gets virtual space in your harddisk. Try to free up your harddisk or delete the unwanted files. GOOD LUCK

My old computer died! How do I transfer the data on that computer to the new computer?


Take out the harddisk from your old computer to the new one. You can set it as Master or slave if you have a new harddisk in your new pc. There's a jumper setting for that. Just follow the setting labeled on the old harddisk.

Computer harddisk


You may need to reinstall your operating system. this happens when a virus, something called w32. jini.recko^lok affcts the system.

you may also try to install an antivirus program which is up to date, to scan your system. But the bad news is that once this trojen affects your system most of the antiviruses are not successfully installed. The winodws installer service is locked or terminated by this trojen.

best thing to do is to recover and backup your data to any other disk. and repartition your disk and format and reinstal it.
