Re: hard drive password
It is an advance configuration for your Asus notebook's hard drive. The best way that you can resolve it is call Asus and give them the code that you're getting onto your system. They should be able to generate a code or password for you.
Just like Dell, they have something on their system that can generate a password/code to resolve a hard drive password issue.
You cannot just get a hard drive password anywhere. Its a sort of security for your system.

Hmm. I didn't realize you could still 'park' a hard drive lol. Do you mean the windows password, or the BIOS (comes up right when you first turn on computer) password? I'll need to have more information to help you.
You have to erase the motherboard memory. However this is extremely difficult. Even if you esase the cmos memory and put in a whole new hard drive, the lock may still be there. Your best bet is to contact the seller to see if they will give you the password. If they dont want to help you then you should leave a negative feedback on their account.
Reinstall the operating system - it should wipe out the password and viruses that may have installed when they used it. Unfortunately, if it's a HDD password - get another hard drive. Go to the ASUS website and determine if there is a recovery partition in the hard drive to restore back to factory settings.
By SSD I assume you are refering to a Solid State Drive to replace your existing hard drive. If this is the case you need to install the drive and then boot off the CD that came with your computer and reinstall the operating system. Note that all you old info will still be on the original hard drive but you can still access it by purchasing a 2.5 inch USB hard drive enclosure. When you plug it into a USB port it will be detected as a second hard drive.
If you are able to locate either the jumper (JBAT1) terminal from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to pins 1-2; or the cmos battery(remove for about 10 minutes) which will be on the motherboard although where is anyones guess, unless somebody does know, but i'm sorry i don't.
Athough this may not open up the hardrive as sometimes there is a hidden file on some manufacturers hardrives that sometimes prevent formating.
