Question about Samsung Spinpoint MP0402H 40 GB Hard Drive
One month before I lock my hdd with master passw in the bios of my laptop Fujitsu Siemens E7010 and use it with user pasw. Now i forget the master passw and reset the bios of laptop. I know the user passw and try to unlock the hdd with it but without success. I try also atapwd. Any idea? I bought a new identical hdd (change only on the firmware serial number) and try to replace the boards. The bios does not recognize it. Any idea. What I can do? Maybe the serial number of the firmware? I need my documents.....Thanks in advance for response
Forgot windows password, you can reinstall Windows or reset the old password with windows password reset tool. I do not recommend you to reinstall Windows, which can lead a data loss. You can downloaded Windows Password Reset 9.0 and burned it to a CD/DVD or USB memory card. Then to remove the password. http://www.reset-windows-password.com

Maksiza, I had a customer who would had their harddrive locked. It was a DELL machine, using a travelstar drive, we called DELL verified they were the owners and they gave the master hard drive password to the hard drive and it worked beautifully. Call Samsung with the machine serial number/tag number/asset number whatever and they should have it if not try fujitsu. http://www.samsung.com/products/notebook/index.htm# http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/storage/hdd/contact/index.html The Fujitsu site looks better. Good Luck, Tim p.s. Of course we called DELL after 10 hours of searching.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
