Question about Acer Aspire One D270-1865
BIOS is telling me that the HDD password is frozen. How do I fix this?
Replace the hard drive. It is very difficult to fix the hdd password. You can try to detach the hdd, and leave it for 1 day. Also detach the ac adapter and the main battery. The next day, install hdd and restart the laptop.

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.

Note: Do not forget your hard disk password! Keep it in a safe place. If you forget your hard disk password, there is no way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Neither an IBM authorized reseller nor IBM marketing
representative can make the hard disk drive usable.

This password is to protect unauthorized access to data on the hard drive. The password is stores on the firmware chip on the hard drive and there are no backdoor passwords available, and moving the hard drive to another computer will not work either.
Ask the person who set the password, then you will be able to remove it by going into the BIOS setup.
The only other option is to install a new hard drive and reinstall Windows.

the HDD (HardDrive) password problem is too complex to be solved at home. I suggest taking the computer to a professional together with proof of purchase. I Know acer provides this service also.
Let me know if you need anything else.
