Hard drive passwords cannot be found/discovered. It's a password.
Removing the Bios battery will not change anything. The password is set in the Operating System.
Repartition and format the drive.

Acer aspire 5610z, enter primary master hdd user password


Sometimes removing CMOS battery of laptop overnight will reset bios parameters.if this does not work you have two other options.Google hirens boot disc 15.1 on another computer and either make a bootable USB. Stick or burn to cd.start laptop in get into bios to change the boot sequence to either cd or USB.let the hirens boot cd run.it installs a small version on windows Xp on the ram and let's you then access the hdd to save all the files and pictures on to other media.it also has many tools including software to read all stored passwords on hdd and bios but I don't recommend this until you have retrieved all you want to save.hope this helps please vote?thankyou.

Will not except my boot password


if it is not accepting your boot password, make sure your password is typed correctly hence no caps or caps num lock or no num lock etc.

If you have tried all that and failed, reset the cmos by removing the battery on the motherboard and leaving it out for atleast a minute to be safe. Place it back in and start the computer up. Everything should be reset to manufactures default and password should be removed. Please do not try this if your not technically trained or certified in this field.

Hdd user password


You need to unplug the power, remove the battery, and locate and remove the BIOS battery for a few minutes and then replace the above mentioned batteries and power in the reverse order and that ("FlashingThe BIOS") should reset the BIOS to default settings (no password).
Good luck.
