SOURCE: Bypass HDD password

From what I understand, the hard drive can be set with a password so the drive can't be used in any other computer or even opened if stolen. It is different from windows or bios passwords, and no password unlocker can open it.

You need to call the manufactor of the pc, and have all the information about the computer handy so it can be proven you are the legal owner. They are the only ones that I know of that might be able to reset or disable the HD password.

I turn on my aspire one and i get a screen stating the following primary master hitachi hts543216l9slock when i press enter it asks me for a password i dont have. what can i do?


This is known as a Boot Password. Cut power to the laptop, and remove the battery. If you can remove any panels from the bottom of the laptop, and locate the tiny CMOS battery, remove it for 3-5 minutes. It may even be under the keyboard. Once this is left out for 3-5 minutes, the CMOS should reset.

Please help me i forget bios password in my laptop dell model is 1525 how can i open it


To reset the BIOS password in your Dell Inspiron 1525 you would first need to disassemble the laptop and remove the CMOS battery for 30 seconds and put it back in. You can do this by following the service manual below provided by Dell.

Please be aware that this will take some technical knowledge to do, making a mistake here can be fatal to the operation of your system. I urge you, if you are not comfortable following any of these steps, take it to a local professional.

Hello,

On the Thinkpad's, it's a fairly easy process to reset the passwords. Try the following steps and you should be able to access the computer...

The router was working perfectly until there was a power outage.


You may have to enable the wireless function on your router. To do that, you need to access the router as an administrator. Make sure your computer has an ethernet cable to connect between it and your router. Open your web browser and type the following into the address bar: http://192.168.0.1 or it is 192.168.1.0 (I can't recall at the moment). The username should be administrator or admin and the password is either blank or the word password. After logging in, you should see some tabs and one should say wireless. It is on this screen where you want to verify that wireless is enabled on the router.

Power on password on nx6310 hp compaq


Welcome to FixYa! You have a laptop that is one of few that HP provides a command line procedure for. Follow these steps and you will be able to reset that password. If you have forgotten the first password then disable it as for any other brand/model it is an unforgiving procedure to undo that action.
 Resetting the Computer ( These steps also clear CMOS): 1. Enter an incorrect password and press enter. 2. Repeat Step 1 two times. After the third entry of the incorrect password, the computer responds with a “System Disabled” message and provides an override password. 3. Access MS/DOS by clicking Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. 4. Enter “unlock6 xxxxx 0,” where “xxxxx” is the password generated by the computer in Step 2. The computer responds with another system-generated password. This password can be used to reset the computer and clear all CMOS settings.
Please post back if you need further assistance or simply rate a FixYa for me if you are successfu. Steve Medley
