You mean you're trying to get past the user name and password on login? Sorry, if that's the case. You really need to call the support line for them. I doubt anyone here will help you break into a computer.

I want to clear my hard drive, because I'm giving my computer to someone


You don't really want to clear your hard drive unless the person you are giving it to has an operating system to reload, otherwise the computer is useless to them. What you really want to do is get rid of all of your documents, music, pictures and videos. Here's what you should do. 1) Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the option to create a new account. Give the new account the name of the person you are giving the laptop to with administrative rights (not a limited account) or give in a generic name such as Owner or User. 2) Once you've created the new account do a restart of your computer and when it comes up log in to the New Account that you created. 3) Now click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts once again, but this time select your old account, then look for the option to Delete User Account. 4) Delete your old user account and delete all associated files when asked. It will take a few minutes but when finished all of your documents, music, pictures and videos will be long gone and your user account will be gone also. Now when you give the computer to the new owner it will be operational and he can start using it.

How do I get past this Drivelock HDDBay password


Basically, for most of the notebooks, there is a Password provided to secure the data in the Hard Drive and restrict it from un-authorize access.
However, if the Drive Lock Password is set and forgot, it is not possible to unlock the Drive without the password.
However, you can try contacting any of your Friends who is familier with Hard Drives and is a technician who should be having some advanced methods to remove the Password or the Circuit Board of the Hard Drive.

Changing from windows vista to windows xp


i think you need to make a os by yourself by using a software called nlite where it allow to put your hard drive driver. you can download your hard drive driver from your laptop company website. nowadays windows xp is unable to detect new hard drive like your case.
after you download the lastest version of nlite. its simple to make a custom os.
before you start the running nlite :-
1. you need to copy all files of wndows xp in a drive.
2. when you run nlite program, it will asked you the source -> just navigates to the place where you paste the xp files.
next steps are easy as they are user friendly

HDD password


It’s called ‘platter-locked’ and it cannot be easily bypassed or unlocked (the password is built into the hard drive).
If you do not need any information on the hard drive I would suggest buying a new 2.5” hard drive for laptops and install a new one (it will be cheaper).
