Possible blue screen of Death/HDD password

I have a laptop that is 3 yrs old. It has Windows XP. I bought a new laptop a year ago and stopped using the old one. I'm in the Army and away from my wife and kids and now have use for the old one. It was working fine the last time I used it. But when I tried starting it up after not using it for so long it goes right to a blue screen that says " Enter main HDD password". The problem is I never set up a main HDD password. The guys at Geek Squad want to charge me a $100 dollars and say they cant guarantee that it can be made to work. Are there any backdoors for this? Or do you have any other ideas. This old laptop has all my info from where I did my taxes with TurboTax just before I bought my new laptop and I really need to get to that info. I dont have the money to get it fixed right now. Please help

Remove your plug, and battery,  try opening the back of your laptop, look for the cmos battery, and try removing it for about 1 minute. this should reset your bios, and erase and password that i may have. dont worry, it wont erase any files on your harddisk.
maybe the difficult part would be to spot the cmos battery.  depending on the motherboard of your laptop, some would be very easy to find. some are soldered in the motherboard. Your lucky if you could remove it easily.  battery is about half inch in diameter, looks flat, like a plate.

ASUS EeePc 1015PEM reboots at windows startup. even with new hdd and fresh install. ok when in bios screen or if i boot into linyx


Which windows OS are you using? windows xp, 7 or 8?
Anyway the problem might be corrupted installation CD. If you install windows on other computer using this CD, so if CD is OK, then
start your laptop and press F8 repeatedly until Windows Advanced Boot Options appears. Then choose automatic restart on system failure. This option will allow you to see Blue Screen Of Death and to understand what causes a problem.

Is it possible to install Win7 update on replacement HD - a HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook PC


It should be possible. You should search a free toll number for your country to ask Microsoft about this situation. Also you can take out your old hdd and use Ghost to mirror it on the new hdd :) - you just clone the old hdd

You can go to BIOS and run the HDD self test. Seems your HDD is dead. If its passed then its fine, if not it will give you a error message.

You need to purchase a new HDD.

Need SATA HDD password for acer aspire 5100


When everything gets done loading the screen says:

Unknown Disc
<There is no disk in this drive.>

it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list

Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
Technical Information
STOP: 0x00000050
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000

I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error

What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.

From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again

im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated

You cannot see HD because there are no apropriate SATA drivers included in windows XP CD. So you need to create custom windows XP installation CD

To install windows XP in that laptop u will need to create custom windows XP CD, how will you do that:

  1. Download nlite from http://www.nliteos.com/
  2. Download drivers for that laptop
  3. Download service pack 3 for windows XP
  4. Install nlite for windows XP and run
  5. Follow instructions and include SP3 for XP, all the drivers for laptop and create ISO Image
  6. Burn ISO Image
  7. Install Windows XP
  8. Good Luck

I Keep Getting The Blue Screen Of Death


well my friend Welcome to the world of XP sucks don't it, but all is not lost! if you have your copy of windows XP re istall the software, do a fresh install, delete the old system (Partition) and start with a New (RAW) partition, and install xp as instructed in the step by step installation. you will lose all the old data on your hard drive, but the system wull have a new lease on life, don't forget the automatice updates after your back on line, and to install NEW anti Virus software, turn on your firewall, and The BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH will lose and you win.

in the future be careful what web sites you visit, stay of Lime Wire, and blubster, and chose web sites wisely, and windows defender is a great product to tell you if you have a potential dangerous web site, if your warned DON'T GO IN!

This will fix u r problem! I guarantee it!, if you need a new XP disk, let me know.
