Hey,

the HDD (HardDrive) password problem is too complex to be solved at home. I suggest taking the computer to a professional together with proof of purchase. I Know acer provides this service also.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

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.

Hdd frozen password


if you never put a password on the BIOS then the problem is in the hard disk. Virus infection?
If you know how to run a Live CD with some of the Linux OS e.g Ubuntu, Mint, and the computer works and you see no message then the problem is in the hard disk.
You might need to remove the hard disk to try the live CD.
If you still get the BIOS message and you didn't put a password then you have a corrupted BIOS. You can try to flash the BIOS (risky it might kill the pc) but you might solve the problem.

Hdd frozen password


Replace the hard drive. It is very difficult to fix the hdd password. You can try to detach the hdd, and leave it for 1 day. Also detach the ac adapter and the main battery. The next day, install hdd and restart the laptop.

If you initialize the disc with the new OS disc it should format with no problem. The password is only to encrypt the information, not to prevent access the disc.
