Re: hdd password

What is HDD Password? All hard disk drives have the possibility to set a hardware password, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. When you set a password on your notebook, the drive becomes locked as well. XBox gaming consoles and some desktop computers can also lock hard disk drives. This is usually called "HDD password" or "ATA password".

If you forget the original HDD password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. HDD Unlock Wizard incorporates proprietary unlocking algorithms which allow to remove an unknown HDD password and make hard drive usable again.

I have a software enable to reset the password security on your harddriver but you need to pay my professional charge. If sound interested please email

Please rate me solved if you like my solution.

Best regards,

Re: hdd password

If you change to a new Hard drive then you will be fine. But make sure you aren't confusing hard drive password and Bios password.
I have not seen but one Hard Drive passworded in 15 years of fooling with PCs.
Lastly, since it would still be stored most likely on the drive you could try one of the stronger drive managers and redo the Master Boot Record. Loosing all data on it at the time, but possibly regaining the drive. Nothing to loose at this point.

Windows XP won't see C drive after formatting and erasing vista on Toshiba Satellite P200-AB1 laptop

I had a Toshy A25, not with that issue, but I did erase Malware infected Vista from an Acer Aspire. The system is locked to boot from the HDD, so it needs an OS, I formatted an easy swappable Windows 98 OS onto the HDD. I was told Linux will work too. Get the BIOS settings to allow boot from the system's own CD/DVD drive! That is key to new installs, and getting the drivers loaded like they should

I have a laptop Toshiba satellite A30. I have a black screen and some text on it like: PXE-E61 MediaTest Failure PXE-M0F Exiting PXE ROM and it goes continiously, I can't go any further. When I was loaded...

media test failure means that your boot drive has failed ie your hard drive has failed to boot....could be one of a number of reasons
1 hard drive connection could be loose - try taking out the hard drive and reinstalling it
2 the boot sector on the hard drive is corrupt or damaged - try booting off a windows disk and running chkdsk or fixboot command
3 partition table is corrupt - try booting off windows cd and running chkdsk /p from command prompt
4 Hard drive has failed - if machine is still under warranty return for repair if not install new hard drive and reload op system from recovery disks

Restart the computer,

Right after the Toshiba logo appears start tapping the F8 key.

You will get an option to start in Safe Mode.

Select this option and let the computer start in Safe Mode.

If given the option you will want to log in as Administrator.

After you are logged in you will want to go to the Control Panel and then click on the Users link.

Select your account and choose to remove the password.

Reboot the computer and you should be able to access your account.

HDD password

It’s called ‘platter-locked’ and it cannot be easily bypassed or unlocked (the password is built into the hard drive).
If you do not need any information on the hard drive I would suggest buying a new 2.5” hard drive for laptops and install a new one (it will be cheaper).
