Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Sir my ecs A530 laptop asks for my current password. I entered my password but it was not recognized. i try to reformat it but the reformatting wont continue. it doesnt detect my hard disk. we test the hard disk and found out it was working well.. the man we asked to test the drive told us that maybe the defect was with the hard disk connector which was connected with the motherboard. can you help me??? and i also wonder if the password asked was it the manufacturer's password??? I already made it sure that my Numlock and Capslock were off.
It depends what kind of password is that, if you are dealing with a password witch is being asked when it's turned on and called power on password or what (last time I saw something like that 2-3 mounths ago) than you have almost 0 chance to get in to your computer without it. In that case I strongly suggest you to check your papers, no matter if there's no more warrenty left, call the hp support line and as far as I know they have their own passwords and they'll tell you if you can prove that you are the rightful owner of the laptop not a thief.
If it's just a windows password, than it's a piece of cake, just go google and type ophcrack, download the live cd of theirs, and burn it to disc on another machine, use that cd to start your laptop and make sure that it boot's from it, it will automaticly try to crack the password and will show you if found one, (most passwords are stored in 2 pices, you'll see, on the screen, you'll need to use both halves of the password case sensitively as shown.)
