Question about Acer Aspire 4520-5582 Notebook

1 Answer

My friend bought a laptop (Acer Aspire 4520) when you turn it on you get a black scre en with a blue box that says Enter Password. I was able to find two bios passwords online that will take you to the next screen that says Enter SATA Port 0 HDD User Password. There are 8 available characters. Is there a way to get a master password for hdd or bypass this to see if windows is gonna load,? Can't do anything right now with it. I burned a cd Ultimate Boot CD but the computer wont read it even when you turn it off and back on

That's the idea of HDD passwords. You can't access the data on it at all. Either by boot cd or physically removing the hard drive and connecting it to another pc, you still won't be able to access the drive. Two options, replace the hard drive and reload a clean o/s. Or, there is a service available that might remove the password and retain the data. There are also services that will remove the password and wipe the data, as a security measure. But at the cost of either of these services, makes better sense to replace the drive and reload the o/s. You can goole HDD Unlock and find the software easily. You would need to connect the drive to another working pc. Download and run the software on that password protected drive. It will tell you if it is unlockable. To bad it's not a Dell, I may be able to provide you with a p/w to unlock it.

SOURCE: asking for password sata port pass

This is a "security" feature, to protect the files on the disk-drive from unauthorized access.

The computer supports "full-disk" encryption of each disk-drive inside your computer.

So, what password did you set when you first initialized this disk-drive?

If you don't know it, there's nothing you can do -- all the files on the disk-drive are _NOT_ accessible to you.

SOURCE: have a acer aspire 5515 notebook laptop it keeps

It sounds like you may need to go into the BIOS and change or disable the password. Alternatively, clear the CMOS.

My Acer aspire 4520 windows vista laptop is locked. can someone helph me? to change my user name and password. I forgot my password.


Hi there, this may work, try this.

Take off laptop battery, remove power cord, turn laptop upside down.
Just take off screws on the covers you see, which let you see HDD, Memory,Wireless card,.... ,
take off the cover or check on line for service manual for your specific model on how to remove the plastic cover/ covers, which is covering the CMOS battery which is some time wrapped up with yellow tape. Just remove the battery by holding on the white connector which attached to the motherboard with black and red wires. Gently pull from the motherboard.

Now without the CMOS battery, connect power cord and turn on the laptop, it should turn on. Now turn off , remove the power cord, check voltage on battery , it should measure very close to 3volt (2.5 to 3.0 volt), otherwise get a new one, connect the battery, put back covers, and now you set a new password.

My acer lap top haulted me out of the system. it is a black screen with a blue box in the center and it say enter the 8 digit password. ive tried everything. please help me. is there any codes to do.


This sounds like a bios password. you should contact Acer and See what they can offer you may have to send in your unit and see if they can clear the bios password or what other options. Do you remember going into the bios at all ? did someone help you with your computer ? they may have set it for you and forgot to tell you. I assume this comes up when you power up the laptop? have you also tried just hitting enter and leaving it blank ?
