Hard drive password is stored on a drives firmware chip. The password is used to protect data on the hard drive and moving it to another computer won't allow you to see or access data on that hard drive. There are no backdoor passwords available that you can use.
To get your laptop operational again, you need to replace the old hard drive with a new hard drive and install Windows again.
Otherwise you will have to keep trying all the passwords you can think of. If you succeed in getting in I suggest you remove this password.

Hdd primary pasword is lost cannot open hard disk drive showing error codes 06231 and so on cannot boot the computer cause the disk drive is asking for primary hdd pasword and is no taking the password...


Most modern laptop HDD or BIOS passwords are not resettable and don't come with default passwords to unlock them if the password is forgotten.

You will need to contact Acer and find out what kind of warranty coverage your machine has. It's likely that you will have to pay for the services they provide or pay for a new hard drive yourself and re-install Windows.

I like to xchange my HDD 40gb on my acer 3260 travelate into 20gb HDD


The smallest new hard drive you can buy today is approx. 80 to 100 Gb.
You may be able to buy 2nd hand 20Gb ones but you don't know how long they will last for, it is a bit of a risk.
