SOURCE: Master Password for 2.5'' Hitachi laptop HDD

if locked while booting up, before even windows is loading: you've got a master password in BIOS to worry about.No way but to ask the manufacturer to remove it.
if you cannot access windows anymore after booting up:
boot up from a win cd, go through setup,
install a new copy of windows and try to find your personal files on the disk, back them up and reboot from a win cd again, this time format the whole harddisk and set up a clean, new installlation of windows.(warning: all beforehand data will permanently lost then)

good luck

SOURCE: forgot asus laptop password Windows vista

To reset your ASUS laptop Windows login password, I think you can try this password recovery software, fully compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP etc operation system, supporting both 32-bit and 64-bit. You can do it on your own, no need to send it to a computer shop. Regards.

My Asus X553M laptop is not booting up. Any ideas how to fix this problem?


Temitope, Hard reset. Open computer, remove battery,hold power button down (((1 minute))), reinsert battery, reassemble laptop, push/hold power button a couple seconds.
2nd fix, try to boot laptop without hdd.(hard drive). Remove the hdd, then turn on the laptop.. then it can get into the bios.. reset the bios to the default setting, turn off the laptop, and then turn it on again with hdd reinstalled. This seems to be what works in the forums with this issue found in Asus laptops. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Hard disk locked


Remove the hard drive and test the laptop using other hard drive. If it is locked again, then your computer has a problem.

Asus eee pc 900ha master password hard drive locked


an actual hard drive lock? Those are a bummer, a new harddrive is the only real way.. not even tech support can help with this, I've been down that road, It sucks. the only real way to fix an actual harddrive lock is to remove a chip from the harddrive and solder a new one one. that being said, i had to replace with a new one. with that sector of the HDD locked, not even booting into a bootable CD(like linux) will help, the harddrive will not be dectable.

If this is a brand new hard drive then you need to install Windows on this hard disk with the ASUS drivers for your model laptop plus your programs to get a working laptop.

Purchased on Ebay an Asus which has a locked HD. I have booted it to USB stick with Knoppix. It has a 160Gb locked Western Digital drive. Is this a bios problem? Is it a HD firm ware problem. I'm not...


You have to erase the motherboard memory. However this is extremely difficult. Even if you esase the cmos memory and put in a whole new hard drive, the lock may still be there. Your best bet is to contact the seller to see if they will give you the password. If they dont want to help you then you should leave a negative feedback on their account.
