    this is a bios password and the computer obviously wont boot without it.

    This link brings you to a page that has "back door" passwords. You might want to try one of these.

    the link button is not working so you will have to cut and paste the link

This password is to protect unauthorized access to data on the hard drive. The password is stores on the firmware chip on the hard drive and there are no backdoor passwords available, and moving the hard drive to another computer will not work either.
Ask the person who set the password, then you will be able to remove it by going into the BIOS setup.
The only other option is to install a new hard drive and reinstall Windows.

This is from a factory repair and maintenance manual for Acer Aspire Laptops. It may work for you.

Forgotten Hard Disk Password
When the user keys in the wrong password three times, an error message appears. The user must now reset
the password.
1. Make a note of the error code that is displayed with the error message.
2. Run unlock6.exe from the DOS prompt in the following format:
unlock6 XXXXX 00
(XXXXX = HDD password error code, 00 = CRC base - default is 00)
3. Select Upper case ACSII Code from the screen that appears. The HDD master password is displayed.
Make a note of this password.
4. Reset your system. When the Enter Primary Master HDD User Password prompt appears, enter the
password you made a note of in step 3.
Resetting a BIOS Password
The user can reset a BIOS password using the clnpwd.exe utiility.
1. Copy clnpwd.exe to a DOS boot up disk (or flash drive).
2. Boot your system in DOS mode.
3. Execute clnpwd.exe from the boot up disk (or flash drive).
4. Press 1 or 2 to reset the required password as shown on screen.
5. A confirmation message appears when the process is successful.

How to get password from hdd password error code acer aspire 4315


Is the error message coming before bios starts to load XP from harddisk, or after?

If it is coming after XP starts then it may be driver issue.

If it is coming before XP, then it may be a question of incorrect bios for the hardware in your laptop.
