SOURCE: how to get password from hdd password error code acer aspire 4315

Is the error message coming before bios starts to load XP from harddisk, or after?

If it is coming after XP starts then it may be driver issue.

If it is coming before XP, then it may be a question of incorrect bios for the hardware in your laptop.

SOURCE: Hard Disk Crash

Actually if the hd is corrupted, you can try to go to safe mode or do a chkdsk and then fix boot otherwise you need to contact drivesavers for that.

SOURCE: dont have password

There are two sections (that come to mind) when a password is requested in starting a computer. BIOS or Windows Passwords.
WINDOWS PASSWORD This will be after the windows logo as come up. Depending on which version of windows you have, you will need to find a windows password reset tool. 
A lot of these will require you to boot from a CD that you have created from an ISO image. If this is is confusing, head into a computer shop and ask them to do it.  Alternatively, reformatting the machine by reinstalling windows over the top should eliminate the problem (and all of the data that is still on the machine.)
BIOS PASSWORD This will usually be during the 'black screen' phase of booting.
An IBM ThinkPad laptop can have three BIOS hardware passwords set

  • Power-On Password
  • Hard Disk Password
  • Supervisor Password

Power-On Password
RT/CMOS RAM has 8 bytes reserved for the power-on password and the check character. The 8 bytes are initialized to hex 00. The microprocessor can access these bytes only during POST. After POST is completed, if a power-on password is installed, the password bytes are locked and cannot be accessed by any program. During power-on password installation, the password (1 to 7 characters) is stored in the security space. Installing the password is a function of the built-in system program Easy-Setup. The power-on password does not appear on the screen when it is installed, changed, or removed. After the power-on password has been installed, it can be changed or removed only during POST.
Hard Disk Password
The hard-disk password (HDP) protects the data on your removable hard disk drive from being accessed by unauthorized persons.
Supervisor Password
The supervisor password protects the system information in Easy-Setup from being changed by unauthorized persons.
How to Reset an IBM ThinkPad Power On Password using Software If you can boot the IBM ThinkPad, KeyMaker will recover the BIOS password.
How to Reset an IBM ThinkPad Power On Password Using Hardware If you cannot boot the ThinkPad, you will have to reset the IBM ThinkPad password via hardware. If only the power-on password is set, do the following to remove the power-on password. Power off the computer Remove the DIMM (Memory) cover on the bottom side of the computer. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit. Under the short-circuit condition, power on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The power-on password is removed. Reinstall the DIMM cover.
If both the power-on password and the supervisor password are set, do the following to remove the passwords: Power on the computer by pressing and holding F1. Enter the supervisor password. The Easy-Setup menu appears. Click on the Password icon. Click on the Power on icon. Enter the supervisor password and press the Space bar. Press Enter twice. Click on Exit; then click on Restart.

SOURCE: asi gave mine laptop compaq c700 pc notebook to hp

Only Hp knows what that means in their diags. Get it shipped back and take it to a Locally owned PC shop and have them take a look at it. It is possible that you have just enough file fragmentation and file structure corruption that it is fail diags. Why did you take it in to be looked at anyways?

Locked myself out of my hard drive by putting a password on it in BIOS. I cleared the admin and user pwd's, but came up with a new one for the drive. I can't remember it.


You can either remember it to use your hdd or purchase a new hdd and start again with a fresh OS then restoring your data from your backups.

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-NS20E laptop. When I start it the message comes " SMART Failure Predited on Hard Disk. Warning: Immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be


Smart error, failure or S.M.A.R.T. has been tripped. They all mean the same thing. Your PC's HDD is dying, how fast? Nobody knows. So what it really comes down to is that you have a limited amount of time to access your HDD in more ways than your panicked mind can come up with right now. So until you can figure out a plan, the most important thing you can do is turn off your PC. Remember running your HDD is using up valuable time. So remove the HDD, Go get a reliable replacement (your HDD is dying) and install your favourite O/S. At this point I would suggest you purchase an external HDD enclosure so can hook up the old HDD and transfer back the important files.

I AM trying to remove a hard drive password from the samsun r370 can youhelp


If the Admin password does not allow you access to the drive then you MUST have the hdd password...........Even if you put the drive in another pc you won't have access to it (a hdd password is encoded on the disk). You can't even format it and use it again.The HD password is set together with the BIOS password, completely locking in all the hardware. To the best of my knowledge, even your hard disk manufacturer isn't able to unlock a password

Hdd primary pasword is lost cannot open hard disk drive showing error codes 06231 and so on cannot boot the computer cause the disk drive is asking for primary hdd pasword and is no taking the password...


Most modern laptop HDD or BIOS passwords are not resettable and don't come with default passwords to unlock them if the password is forgotten.

You will need to contact Acer and find out what kind of warranty coverage your machine has. It's likely that you will have to pay for the services they provide or pay for a new hard drive yourself and re-install Windows.

Xbox error 06


if it has the stock bios imma guess you locked the hard disk drive with the old hard disk key. and if you did that its going to give a error code six. error code six means the xbox cannot unlock the hard disk. either reflash your bios or install your old hdd back in, get the eeprom info, find a tool by teamassembly "cant remember what its called but it takes your eeprom and creates a custom key for that specific hard disk drive" i dont use that **** anymore tho because i have my **** flashed with a bios that isnt so anal about locked hard disk drives, but you may need to go back to the old hdd first and reflash it with a different bios instead of doing the hdd lock code ********. if u want my opinion on a good bios go for ind bios 5003. try xbins
