On the mainboard near the coin battery you'll find a jumper. take it off and reboot. Replace it and reboot again. that works sometimes. If not you can go to the motherboards' BIOS like Phoenix and they have backdoors built in. Read on:
Backdoor passwords Many BIOS manufacturers have provided backdoor passwords that can be used to access the BIOS setup in the event you have lost your password. These passwords are case sensitive, so you may wish to try a variety of combinations. Keep in mind that the key associated to "_" in the US keyboard corresponds to "?" in some European keyboards. Laptops typically have better BIOS security than desktop systems, and we are not aware of any backdoor passwords that will work with name brand laptops.
WARNING: Some BIOS configurations will lock you out of the system completely if you type in an incorrect password more than 3 times. Read your manufacturers documentation for the BIOS setting before you begin typing in passwords

If you happen to forgot windows logon password, you can get into safe mode (F8 when booting up) to reset windows password when you forgot user account password, but when you forgot admin password, there's no way to change it, you should use a software application to recover admin password. A week ago, I forgot my Windows admin password. Last, I used Windows Password Seeker to reset the Windows password successfully. It's worth trying.

When I lost my windows password, I like to reset Windows Password with Windows Password Reset 9.0 and I think it is excellent and professional! Once the password is removed, there is no need to type any passwords but to leave it blank, and click the user name to instantly log on Windows.

How to Bypass Windows Password With Ease?


Nowadays, it comes a common sense to add a BIOS or Windows password for laptop protected. Thus, a feasible advice is to create a Windows password disk in case that you forgot Windows password. But without Windows password reset disk, what should we do in order to bypass Windows password?

It's time to learn how to bypass Windows password with the following two tips and tricks.

Method 1: Bypass Windows password by Safe Mode with Command Prompt

According to Wiki, Safe Mode is a diagnostic mode of a computer Operating System (OS), a special way for Windows to load when a system-critical problem interfering with normal operation of Windows. If you are not able to boot your computer in normal mode or supposed your notebook is infected with Trojans or malware, you are able to get rid of them with Safe Mode. Furthermore, it is easier and safer to bypass Windows password in Safe Mode when you lost or forgot Windows password.

Take Windows 7 for example: there are 3 different types of safe mode: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Below is a guide on how to bypass Windows 7 password with Safe Mode with Command Prompt, which allows you to bypass Windows password with command line. Detailed steps are as follow:

Step 1. Boot or reboot your Windows 7 computer.
Step 2. Press F8 to enter Advanced Boot Options before the Windows 7 loading screen appears.
Step 3. Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt in the coming screen, then Press Enter.
Step 4. Wait for Windows 7 files to load until Windows login screen comes up.
Step 5. Log in with an administrator account when you see logon screen.
Step 6. A Command Prompt appears.Type net user in the Command Prompt and then hit Enter. All Windows user account names will be listed for you.
Step 7. Type net user 'Alina 123' and hit Enter.
Step 8. The new password has been successfully reset when the command is completed successfully.
Step 9. Log on your PC with the new password.

Note: 'Alina' is your locked Windows user account name. And '123' means the new password you want to reset for the locked account.
Whenever you need to log on to Safe Mode, an administrator account password is necessary. So it is highly recommended you to write Windows password down and sotre it or creating a Windows password recovery disk before lost/forgot Windows password.

Method 2: Bypass Windows password with Windows Password Unlocker

However, if you haven't created a password reset disk and forgot all administrator account password, it's better for you to bypass Windows 7 password with Windows password reset software. These reset software allow you to bypass Windows passwordwith a USB flash drive or bootable CD/DVD. Windows Password Unlocker Professional is one of the best choice to reset or change Windows password in a while.

Go through with these steps and recover Windows password with ease!
Step 1. Download Windows Password Unlocker Professional and install it in any computer.
Step 2. Run the program and burn an ISO image file into a blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive.
Step 3. Start your locked computer from the bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive.
Step 4. bypass Windows password successfully.
Of course, there are some other methods of bypassing Windows 7 password. Picking up a suitable and efficient one to bypass Windows password is a necessity.

PRIMARY MASTER TOSHIBA MK1652GSX LOCK


If your hard drive is locked you're out of luck. I'm not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you encounter a computer that has a password on the hard drive and the person in possession of the computer does not know the password, the computer is stolen. Hard Drive passwords are put on to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data.

My friend got me a lenovo notebook s10-2.but as I press the start butten it shows primary master lock ST9160314AS


The previous owner of the Lenovo put a "password" onto the disk-drive, to "lock-out" all other persons, including a THIEF. Ask your friend for the password.

Or, remove the disk-drive, and buy a replacement disk-drive, and re-install Windows.

After boot, appears ENTER PRIMARY MASTER HDD USER Password i need the password @ solution to boot up my lappy... thanks


How Do I Change the Primary Master HDD User Password?

Prior to loading an operating system, your computer will first execute the BIOS program. The BIOS has an extra password feature, called the hard disk drive (HDD) user password, that can't be bypassed and provides a layer of defense to keep your data secure. To change an existing HDD user password you will have to load the BIOS menu, which is only accessible during the computer's operating system reboot procedure.

Instructions

1. Close any windows that are currently open on your computer. Eject any discs inserted into the optical drive and disconnect any peripheral USB devices.

2. Open the "Start" menu and select "Shut Down." Turn on your computer once the operating system finishes shutting down.

3. Press the key your computer uses to load the BIOS menu. For example, with Dell computers tap "F2" when the "Press F2 for Setup" option appears. Press the "Access IBM" key on IBM laptops or "F10" on HP desktops.

4. Navigate to the BIOS tab that contains the HDD password option, which will usually be the "Security" tab. Some computer manufactures instead include the password option in the "Advanced" tab.

5. Scroll down to the option labeled either "User Password" or "BIOS lock" and hit "Enter." Type the current master HDD user password when the prompt appears and press "Enter."

6. Input a new HDD user password and hit "Enter" again. Navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Exit" or something similar.

7. Move over to the "Save and Exit" entry and press "Enter." Select "Yes" and tap "Enter."

Acer 5315 recon harddisc security password required


Hello,

Bad news, someone has set the hard drive security option. The hard drive is hardware locked and can't be unlocked without the password. Not even putting the hard drive in another machine will bypass the security. You can send the drive to hitachi repair in Dallas, Tx. for recovery but it is very pricey.
