Dell Inspiron 600m: No Boot Device. I'm a computer


Have you tried resetting the BIOS defaults? In doing so, it will force IDE re-detection and often resolve vague boot issues.

My son broke the screen on his laptop two years ago and I finally replaced the screen. Now he cannot remember the hard drive password for the computer. I am wondering if there is a way to reset this...


Reset the bios by disconnecting the biosbattery (leave it out for 5 mins), this will clear the installed passwords from the bios. Is inside your laptop on the motherboard, probably in a hard to reach place, but that is the most simple way to do it.

My son locked the hhd drive and he forgot password how do i unlock it


You can't unlock it without the password. Removing the hard drive and putting it into another computer will not work.
This feature is used to prevent unauthorized access to data on the hard drive.
The hard drive password is set from the Security setting in the BIOS configuration and you need the password to disable the password on the hard drive.

My son set a hard drive password on my laptop & forgot it.


With most of the Acer's you can get by this problem by removing the cmos / bios battery for a few minutes with the battery and power adapter unplugged.

This will clear the password.

Or you could just ask your son about the password, no?

Hdd user password


Hi there
This mainly happens when someone else has been on the laptop and have been into the bios to create a HDD password accidentally or otherwise.
you may be able to reset the password from within the bios although this is highly unlikely, you may have to ask your son what the password is or if a friend could have created a password.
Your not going to be able to access the hard drive until you have or can change the password
