SOURCE: asking for password sata port pass

This is a "security" feature, to protect the files on the disk-drive from unauthorized access.

The computer supports "full-disk" encryption of each disk-drive inside your computer.

So, what password did you set when you first initialized this disk-drive?

If you don't know it, there's nothing you can do -- all the files on the disk-drive are _NOT_ accessible to you.

SOURCE: My daughter's Aspire One is

This password is a BIOS password and to reset it you'll need to go into BIOS and do it manually.

If the password comes up before any other loading screens then we'll need to flush the BIOS password cache, but hopefully we can solve everything by going into BIOS.

To enter BIOS hit the F2 key repeatedly as the computer boots up. You should enter BIOS after the first loading screen by Acer. If this does not send you into BIOS, try the DEL and F1 keys. You might also need to hold the F2 and DEL keys together. Once in BIOS find where you can set the password and reset it or enter a blank password as your new password.

If you can't access BIOS or are prompted for a password once you enter BIOS, try the following methods to flush the BIOS password cache:
1. Contact Acer support and ask if they have a backdoor BIOS password that they will allow you to use.
2. Send your laptop to Acer to have them reset the password manually, although this takes an undisclosed amount of time and I believe they will make you pay about $100.
3. If you don't want to pay Acer, open your laptop and locate the motherboard. On the motherboard there is a CMOS battery, if you don't know where this is use your PC manual. Remove the battery for an hour and then place it back on the motherboard. This should reset the password. After this turn on your computer and continuously hit F2, or whatever key you find opens BIOS, while the computer boots. This will reset all your BIOS settings so it may take a few minutes to open. After it is open, just exit BIOS and everything should be working properly.

Thanks for using FixYa and good luck!

SOURCE: how can i fix my acer notebook?i cant open bcos

You need to log into the bios and edit the hdd password...
You can press DEL or F2 key when you power ON the laptop... It will take you to the bios setup...
You can navigate in the bios to reach the hard drive password section and you can set the password as blank...
Once you are done press F10 to save the changes and exit out of it...

If it doesnt works, then you can give a try by restoring the BIOS to its factory defaults(using the restore defaults option in bios) which should turn OFF the Bios HDD security feature...

If this hard drive has been in your computer all along then you likely had a password in the BIOS at some point and you'll need that password to unlock it. If the hard drive used to be in another computer and you've moved it to the laptop. you won't be able to unlock it without the original password. You might try contacting the vendor of the laptop for help unlocking it if it is, in fact, a computer you bought at the same time as the hard drive. Otherwise, your drive is possible locked without a way to unlock it without maybe erasing it.

Are you saying the drive is locked by a password? Western Digital Corporation hard drives do have that capability.

How do i unlock my sata port 0 wdc WD5000LPVX -22v0TT0


A sata port does not need to be unlocked. if you are having trouble accessing the hard drive connected to the sata port, there may be issues with what driver is installed. find the driver for your mother board sata ports and re-install it. you can also try connecting it to another computer to ensure the hard drive is not corrupted.

After booting up my Acer laptop i got this error SATA Port 0 WDC WD 3200BPVT - 22JJ5Lock help please.


This is going to be very hard as once hard disks are locked they cannot be undone so if you have no passwords to get into the security of the HDD, its a new hard disk i'm afraid.

Re-factory reset


Okay, whats happened is that you either have a program like Bitlocker turned on, or some security feature enable on your hard drive.

If you want to get into BIOS press either F4, F2, F1 or DELETE. Most of those keystrokes will enter you into your BIOS. Unless your BIOS is locked with a password, in which case you'll need to get a device code. If this is the case you will need to contact the manufacturer and speak with them about your issue, which will require your serial number and model number.

As a back door last resort, you may be able to put your Windows OS disk and do a install over the existing Windows image. Make sure you have a real windows OS disk, not a recovery disk. Let me know if any of this helped you.

A security lock has been set. Two choices here;- Get the correct code before you are locked out completely or purchase a new hdd as even if you could afford to retrieve the hdd, all data will be lost.
