Hi i have sony laptop windows7 i forgot password,how do i reset passwork thanks !

If the windows password, there is software available on fleabay that purport to reset passwords. If system or hdd password, replace the hdd to continue. If BIOS password, take it to an authorised Sony Service Centre.

Lenovo laptop HDD locked/Sata port 0 locked, insydeh20 bios locked, can't go to boot selection(it brings me to the HDD prompt password again). help!

Sorry, you're hosed. If you forgot your HDD password the only thing you can do is replace the drive and rebuild your S110. There is no way to remove or reset it without using the original password in the original motherboard. Period.
If you're misinterpreting the screen information and it happens to be the bios user password that's forgotten it is possible to have an authorized Lenovo repair center reset it with adequate proof of ownership. Lenovo themselves will not do it. If it's the SVP password for the bios the only solution is to replace the motherboard. Period.

Having passwords that can be reset like in the old days just by jumpering 2 wires defeats the purpose of having a password in the first place.

Sir, My name is Valentine am in South Africa i which to ask if you can help me with some information on how to unlocked my lenovo laptop. the HDD1 built in pass word was setup by my brother mistakenly...

I have the same concern as yours I hope that the procedural that I did could help you as well.

1. removed hdd from laptop`s tray (with power OFF)
2. powered ON the laptop and entered in BIOS SETUP
3. as the hdd was removed the BIOS read at 1st ata device but i was able to select field, which had as options
4. select option and the "manual" options for the hdd appear
5. don`t change anything, remain on that page and insert the HDD drive in the tray. as it powers up the bios completed me the field vith the values for my hdd automatically.
6. go back to the field "1st ata device" and selected the option
7. go to the bios SECURITY section and in the field "HDD Password" enter a password of your choice (but remember or note it down)
8. EXIT the bios setup and SAVE CHANGES (and reboot)
9. at the HDD prompt i found now the password matched the one i entered
10. run the bios setup again and remove the hdd password for easy use purpose..

that`s it, how it did work for me. now, i believe this steps to be usefull for anyone else.
my bios type is award medallion v6.0 but i hope to work on other versions as well...

Dell inspiron password removal hdd

Usually, the hdd password is set the same as bios password. So we can recover the BIOS password directly from the laptop security chip. But if the hdd password is set not the same as bios password, how do you remove hdd password for Dell inspiron?

Therefore, you have to use password cracker only. If you still remember hard disk password, or you remember bios password and bios password is the same as hard drive password, follows the below article to remove it.
