Sorry to say nothing can be done. After password is to secure from unauthrized access. You may have to restore your computer to factory settings. This will remove all the data. You can contact a local technician to back up your data before restoring the 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.

I GOT A TOSHIBA SATELLITE LAPTOP HOW DO I RESET THE HDD/SSD PASSWORD I BOUGHT IT THIS WAY


I'm afraid you may have purchased a stolen laptop. It is impossible to remove a HD/SSD drive password, there are no backdoor passwords and if the Toshiba has a Power on Password then this laptop cannot boot up.
If the HD/SSD is password locked then remove the existing drive, replace it with a new HD or SSD, install Windows plus the Toshiba device drivers and programs to get a working laptop.

How do i remove a built-in HDD password?


If it is the password that has been firmware locked, you cannot. This is to stop people who steal laptops from accessing data
If its a BIOS password, access the bios by pressing ( I THINK) F2 or F1 or Del at start up, navigate through the BIOS screens until you find SET Password and remove it

HD suddenly asks for Password, never set one!


The password-protection program is designed to protect your files, so that if in case your HD is stolen, any important files will remain intact in the HD.

You have to refer to the use manual of the HD and look for the default password. Since you mentioned that you never set any passwords, it means that the HD is still using the default or manufacturer's password or code. Check the manual and you should find it there.

Or you may want to contact the tech support of the manufacturer and see if they could give you the default password.

Thank you and good luck!

Forgot my password to power on my ibm t23 what can i do ?


If a BIOS or HD lock password you are out of luck.

BIOS password means replacement of the system board. HD password requires replacement of the HD and reinstallation of all software on new drive.

This is a security feature so no one can steal laptops and try to use or sell it.
