SOURCE: Blue light flashed on the portable hard drive.

If your portable hard drive was set up as the "H" drive, go to My Computer (in Windows XP), or Computer (in VISTA), select your "H" drive and view your files (if there).

HP pavilion laptop is locked saying enter password for ST00325AS When I can't it comes up with a boot manager use up down arrows and press enter but these don't work


The hard drive itself has protection from theft and that is the password it's asking for. You can't even put the hard drive in another PC and access it without the password. A service query to HP will be necessary if you forgot that password

Hp password .


If you forget the power-on password, you have a more difficult problem. Since the power-on password was designed to provide complete security, you will need to contact an HP-authorized service center for assistance. All data on the hard drive will be removed during the service.
WARNING: If you forget the power-on password, the computer must be reset at an HP-certified repair center. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. The Drive Lock password cannot be reset. If you lose or forget the Drive Lock password, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. These services are not covered by the warranty.

Hp hdd no show computer


Is this an external 1TB Hard Drive? Maybe it's to big for your computer. If it's an external drive try it on another computer and see if it works. There is also the possibility that the external 1TB drive is bad.

If it's not an external hard drive then try the steps below.

Click Start/My Computer and see if your hard drive is listed as a device. If not, turn the computer off, remove the battery, remove the cover that houses the hard drive on the bottom of the laptop then remove the hard drive from the bay. Wait 30 seconds and put the hard drive back into the bay and reboot. Now see if the hard drive is shown under My Computer. If not, the drive might be bad.

How to unlock a HP laptop hard drive


Impossible. Unless you know the password. A "hard drive password lock" is the most secure way to protect your data on a hard drive. Unlike the bios password, which can be removed, the hard drive password is written on the hard drive itself instead of a CMOS for the BIOS.

Hard disk problem(locked by a password)


Hi Someone has set the hard disk password in the BIOS. This stops the hard disk from being accessed until the password is sent to it. The hard disk itself is now locked - you cannot put it in another system - it will just not work until it receives the correct password. I am sorry but unless you know the password there is no way to access the data on the hard disk. You would have to send it to a data recovery firm or possibly return it to the disk manufacturer but contact them first as they will probably destroy all the data on the hard disk. Sorry - but you will have to buy  new hard disk and reset the CMOS before you fit the new one and remove all BIOS passwords.

DriveLock HDD Bay Password


hello,

Will your NX6110 allow you to get into the Bios before the drive lock password coes up? If it doesnt and you dont know the password, you have two options. One being to send the laptop off somewhere to get the password an pay thru the nose. The other is just to buy another hard drive and re-load your system. Those passwords are build into the hard drives and there is really no way to get the password easily. You could of course pay for a machine that will hopefully get your password, but why pay all that money just to use it once, or twice. It comes down to the facts of how importand is the data on your hard drive?
