Your hardrive is locked. you need to call the manufacturer of your pc and they will walk you through the master passwords. It does take time though.

How do i find my hdd security password


Hi,

As a technical support for a computer manufacturer, HDD Security Password which is asked upon computer boot up process cannot be retrieved unless you remember what it was. This HDD as well cannot be reformatted as you will be asked for the Password upon doing so. Resolution to the problem is to replace the HDD. Files can no longer be retrieved as well in this case.

My dell d610 is asking for a hdd password. what would it be there is no password for this computer?


HDD password? Is the laptop encrypted? Unless it s a system password set in the BIOS. You'll have to know what that is or reset it.
Reseting the BIOS requires taking apart the laptop and finding the CMOS battery and shorting it.

My mom has a toshiba satellite L670 series and her computer is asking her for her hdd sdd password how do you find out what it is


HDD passwords are designed to be 100% secure and there is nothing available to
reset or remove the HDD password whether the password failure is caused by human
error or HDD defect. Users must ensure they have regular backups.Unfortunately,a new HDD will be
required and is not covered by the standard warranty.
