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.

Hard disk locked need password

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.

X50r shuts down randomly

Sounds like it is overheating. Get a can of compressed air and clean out all the vents and fans. You can also use a vacuum with a hose attachment to clean it. You also might want to get a laptop cooler.

Purchased on Ebay an Asus which has a locked HD. I have booted it to USB stick with Knoppix. It has a 160Gb locked Western Digital drive. Is this a bios problem? Is it a HD firm ware problem. I'm not...

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.

My Asus k50Ij laptop was stolen now i got it back they changed the user name what can i do please help

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.

Need help to reset a note book i bought on bootsale, i cant log on windows, it does come on, but i have to enter the password, which i dont have, help

If the password it's requesting is the BIOS password then there's not way around it. You may be able to reflash the BIOS via a program downloaded from ASUS but there's not guarantee.

If the password is Windows, the easiest way around it is to reformat the hard drive and re-install a fresh copy of windows.

How to load new ssd for eee pc

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.
