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.

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...


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.

How do i reset the sata port 0 hdd user password on a acer aspire 5515 laptop?


The Hard Drive Password is not an easy thing to remove. Most times it is set to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data.

Check your user manual and see what it says to do.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for manuals and search them for Password or Hard Drive Password.

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

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.
