You need to log into the bios and edit the hdd password...
You can press DEL or F2 key when you power ON the laptop... It will take you to the bios setup...
You can navigate in the bios to reach the hard drive password section and you can set the password as blank...
Once you are done press F10 to save the changes and exit out of it...

If it doesnt works, then you can give a try by restoring the BIOS to its factory defaults(using the restore defaults option in bios) which should turn OFF the Bios HDD security feature...

SOURCE: HARDDISK SECURITY PASSWORD FOR WDC

Saw on a forum that this could be the default password.. wdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwd


-put DOS on a floppy disk
-add atapwd.exe to the disk
-turn off the computer & connect your Western Digital hard drive.
-turn on the computer and inset floppy
-type atapwd.exe after A:\
-when the menu loads click on your harddrive
- >Prepare Erase
- >Erase
-enter the password " wdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwd "
-It should come back with an error, press enter and the hard drive name will disappear from the list
-DO NOT RESTART-...Your harddrive is being formatted.
-Let it sit at that screen for 30mins
-Afterwards, press the F5 key(refresh) and the hard drive should reappear on the list
-restart...and it'll be unlocked.

I don't know if that will help your problem but I hope it helps someone. :thumbsup:

THIS WILL DESTROY DATA ON THE HARD DRIVE

SOURCE: to disactive the password of harddisk

LOL, you're out of luck. If you're smart enough to set the hard disk password, you should be smart enough to remember it. 99% of the computers that have a password lock on the hard drive are stolen computers. The original owner put the lock on to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have set the password remotely once the computer is stolen.

The computer is useless to you. The only way the password can be broken is if the original owner who put it on, takes it off? Even if you take the hard drive out of the computer, it can never be used again as long as it has a password lock on it.

After booting up my Acer laptop i got this error SATA Port 0 WDC WD 3200BPVT - 22JJ5Lock help please.


This is going to be very hard as once hard disks are locked they cannot be undone so if you have no passwords to get into the security of the HDD, its a new hard disk i'm afraid.

HDD PASSWORD REVOVERY LOCKED OUT


You have to input the password or you will not be able to access the data or programmes. There is no way around it. Install a new OS is the only option if you haven't got the password.

I purchased a laptop at a local pawnshop and it has the harddisk security primary master wdc wd1600bevt screen. how do i crack the password?


Several different types of password encryption methods.

First, remove the watch-type battery for several minutes. This resets the bios and may fix the problem. (Some desktops have reset pins that need to be jumped...maybe so with your laptop.)

Operating system password require password recovery software. Some reset the password, others delete all passwords. look for ophcrack.
