Save, delete, and restore your BIOS settings
or http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5710
you will have to burn it to a disk as an ISO

I forgot my hdd password and cant get into it is there a way to get passed it please help me


There are companies that will open your hdd for you at a fee but there will be no data on it as it is all encrypted.
Purchase a new hdd, install your OS and programmes on it and never forget your password again.

FORGOT PASSWORD


If it's your HDD then good luck. If it's not your HDD then give it back. From what I've read formatting and loosing all your data is the only answer.

I forgot hdd password how to unlock


Toshiba highly recommends the customer to fully understand what HDD Password is and once registered please keep your "PASSWORD" in a safe place.Your HDD password is different from your BIOS Password. Your BIOS Password is stored in the computer, but your HDD Password is stored in the HDD unit itself. So even the HDD unit is removed from one computer and attached to another, the HDD password is required to access it.If you forget your HDD User Password, TOSHIBA will NOT be able to assist you, and your HDD will be rendered COMPLETELY and PERMANENTLY INOPERABLE. TOSHIBA will NOT be held responsible for any loss of data, any loss of use or access to your HDD, or for any other losses to you or any other person or organization resulting from the loss of access to your HDD. http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB6B01MC000CR01.htm

Replaced hdd on emachine w3615,light on mobo but it wont come on.


Hi ipackrat21, that little green led you see is telling you the motherboard has standby power. (Its supposed to be green & on).
Make sure the hdd jumper is set to, master without a slave). In a one hdd system.
When you replaced the hdd you also need to enter the bios menu.
In the bios you'll need to make some changes. First you should see the new hdd listed in the bios. (Normally it list the hdd by model). If your hdd is shown than go to the title "BOOT". You need to set the boot order. A normal boot order would list like so;
First boot device, Floppy disk drive".
Second boot device, "CR-ROM" drive.
Third boot device, "Your new hdd".
If your bios does not see your hdd you'll need to re-check the data cable from the board to the drive. (Make sure it is fully connected).
If the drive is an IDE/PATA make sure it has power. A 4-pin molex.

010e000.jpg Good luck ipackrat21!
Still have trouble, post it here.
