If you are referring to the BIOS locking the PC, you should be able to find a button or jumper under the keyboard to reset the bios back to factory defaults, hence, no password.

MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I Disable the "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK" on my hitachi HTS54503289a300, 320 GB sata hard Drive? originally WAS INTALLED IN MY ACER TRAVELMATE LAPTOP NANUFACTURED IN 2012 BUT THE LAP


Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers

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.

Lenovo laptop HDD locked/Sata port 0 locked, insydeh20 bios locked, can't go to boot selection(it brings me to the HDD prompt password again). help!


Sorry, you're hosed. If you forgot your HDD password the only thing you can do is replace the drive and rebuild your S110. There is no way to remove or reset it without using the original password in the original motherboard. Period.
If you're misinterpreting the screen information and it happens to be the bios user password that's forgotten it is possible to have an authorized Lenovo repair center reset it with adequate proof of ownership. Lenovo themselves will not do it. If it's the SVP password for the bios the only solution is to replace the motherboard. Period.

Having passwords that can be reset like in the old days just by jumpering 2 wires defeats the purpose of having a password in the first place.

My labtop is locked


Unlock Windows password with Windows built-in Administrator account.

Here's how this admin unlocks forgotten Windows password:
Start your computer and wait for the Windows Login or Welcome Screen. Once it shows, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice and then type Administrator in the pop-up username box, but leave the password column blank. Next you could successfully log onto system. The following steps for resetting the forgotten password are quite easy. You can make it from "Start->Control Panel->Users Accounts".

Besides, Windows Password Reset is a great choice .

When I turn my computer (aspire one *acer*) on it shows up saying "Harddisk Security" -Primary Master Hitachi HTS543216L9ALock


The hard disk is locked. Since you weren't the one that activated the hdd password it means that the hdd is defective - you will have to replace it and reinstall using an external CD_ROM unit and the recovery disk that you must get from here

This is from a factory repair and maintenance manual for Acer Aspire Laptops. It may work for you.

Forgotten Hard Disk Password
When the user keys in the wrong password three times, an error message appears. The user must now reset
the password.
1. Make a note of the error code that is displayed with the error message.
2. Run unlock6.exe from the DOS prompt in the following format:
unlock6 XXXXX 00
(XXXXX = HDD password error code, 00 = CRC base - default is 00)
3. Select Upper case ACSII Code from the screen that appears. The HDD master password is displayed.
Make a note of this password.
4. Reset your system. When the Enter Primary Master HDD User Password prompt appears, enter the
password you made a note of in step 3.
Resetting a BIOS Password
The user can reset a BIOS password using the clnpwd.exe utiility.
1. Copy clnpwd.exe to a DOS boot up disk (or flash drive).
2. Boot your system in DOS mode.
3. Execute clnpwd.exe from the boot up disk (or flash drive).
