Question about Seagate (ST3160827AS) 160 GB Hard Drive
I can not install again b/c of forgoten the passa woord
Ok please try this:
turn off the pc and remove the power cord open the case, if you have a wrist grounding strap i highly recomend using it to ground the chasis of the pc that way you dont have what is called esd . then look on the motherboard and you should see a small plastic jumper pin it might be black or blue in color if you look carefully you will see that it sits on a row of 3 pins two of the pins are covered py the jumper and one of the pins are uncovered ok? now carefully remove the jumper from the position that it is in and now move it over to cover the pin that was not uncovered and press it in to place . now start up the pc and you will come to the bios set up page and you will see where it is is saying clear passwords click on that and it will ask you if you want to remove all passwords and answer yes then press exit and it will tell you that you will need to replace the jumper in its original position SO PLEASE DONT FORGET THE ORIGINAL POSITION OF THE PIN OK write it down if you have to then simply turn of the pc and replace the jumper in its original position and put the cover back on the pc and restart now you can bypass the password if it asks you to enter a password by pressing the esc key

HDD Unlock Wizard is a window based utility.
It works as a new life for your locked hard disks, as it is competent to unlock almost all hard disks of major brands available in market.
Its proprietary unlocking algorithms can remove any unknown HDD password and you do not required to give any hint of password as it is not working as a normal password cracker tool.
Removal of a HDD password is a slow process and total time required to remove HDD password is depending on the size of the hard disk and type of hard disk.
A small 2.5" notebook hard disk takes more time as compared to normal Desktop hard disk.
Presently it supports IDE and SATA hard disks.
