That is two different things.

A BIOS Password makes you enter a password to boot the machine up. To get rid of this you need to google
make model remove bios password
This requires shorting two pins on the motherboard.

A Hard Disk Password is something different. The requires a password to access files on the hard drive, but not the operating system. To defeat that, you need to reformat and reinstall Windows.

Remove the system board battery (about the size of a nickel) for 20 minutes or temporarily cross the cmos reset jumper on the system board (likely near the battery) for a few seconds. Make certain to put the jumper block back to it's original position.

SOURCE: how to remove the bios password of Asus eee pc bios password

On the motherboard, near the battery, you will see one of two things.
You may see three posts with a jumper on them. The jumper would be in the normal mode. You should see, next to one of the end pins writing that states CLR or CMR CMOS. Move the jumper to the that position and wait about 20 seconds. Then move the jumper back to the normal position and you should be good to go.
If there is no set of pins with a jumper, there may be two silver squares on the motherboard (very small) that will say something like CLR or RST. Jumping them with a screwdriver when the computer is disconnected from the power will do the same thing as the jumpers.

Hdd frozen password


if you never put a password on the BIOS then the problem is in the hard disk. Virus infection?
If you know how to run a Live CD with some of the Linux OS e.g Ubuntu, Mint, and the computer works and you see no message then the problem is in the hard disk.
You might need to remove the hard disk to try the live CD.
If you still get the BIOS message and you didn't put a password then you have a corrupted BIOS. You can try to flash the BIOS (risky it might kill the pc) but you might solve the problem.

Xp200 power on password


Power On password The Power on Password and hard drive password is used to protect the laptop/computer and hard disk from unauthorized access.
The hard drive password is setup in the BIOS you need the hard disk password to remove the password. I'm afraid you may have purchased a stolen laptop/computer. It is impossible to remove a hard drive's password there are no backdoor passwords because the password is stored in the hard drive's firmware. If the laptop/computer has a Power on Password then this laptop cannot boot up.
If the hard drive is password protected then remove the existing drive, replace it with a new hard drive may fix the laptop/computer r BUT it may also set a password on the new hard disk and lock it with the same password. If it does not password protect the new hard drive, then install Windows plus laptop/computer's device drivers and programs to get a working laptop/computer.

Hi, i have a toshiba l305 laptop i often to ask hdd password to open. but i am scared to have it, as well more difficult for me to rebuilt


The hard disk password is used to protect data on your hard disk.
If the hard disk is moved to another laptop the hard disk cannot be access unless you enter the password.
To remove the hard disk, go into your laptop BIOS configuration - security - BIOS & Hard disk password - go to hard disk password - remove password (you need to enter the hard disk password to get permission to remove this password).

DELL XPS M140 MXC051 LAPTOP BIOS PASSWORD


Most laptop or notebook computers feature enhanced BIOS security, and BIOS passwords on laptops are hard to bypass. Several companies offer laptop security chip services that can be used to bypass the BIOS password on Dell laptops or notebooks and reset the security. They can provide a master password from the Dell Service Tag of your Dell laptop. This master password will allow you to bypass the existing password and enter the BIOS and reset the unknown password. To generate the master password they need to know the Dell Service Tag of your unit. Dell Master Password Recovery does not require soldering or disassembly of the laptop and supports most Dell models.

Dell BIOS passwords can also be reset by replacing the laptop security chip. Passwords can also be recovered from security chips that have been removed from laptop or notebook systems. These passwords may be required to attempt to unlock protected hard disks. Passwords recovered from these chips are the original BIOS passwords and may be the same as the hard disk password, but are not guaranteed to be the same and may not unlock the hard disk.These are usually damaged in the process of recovering the passwords and are not suitable for replacement into a computer.

MY ACER ZG5 KEEPS ASKING ME FOR HARDWARE SECURITY?? ALL I DID WAS NOT REMEMBER MY PASSWORD, TOUCHED ONE OR TWO THINGS... BOOM! HARDDISK SECURITY COMES UP?


The BIOS (basic input output system) is a chip that stores the configuration of the laptop and this information needs a battery to keep it stored in its memory. The stored info, consists of The date & time, the amount of RAM (memory), the hard disk type & size, configuration of the parralel & serial ports, passwords etc.
Some passwords are not stored in the BIOS, such as the hard disk password.
The hard disk password is setup from the BIOS configuration and it can be removed using the BIOS configuration, but you need to know the password to do this, or you just enter the password to access the data on the hard disk. This password is used to prevent unauthorized access to data on the hard disk.
There are no backdoor passwords you can use and moving the hard disk into another computer will not allow you access to the data on that hard disk.

Forgot my password in cmos harddisk


The hard disk password is setup using the BIOS configuration, this password is stored on the hard disk and there are no backdoor passwords you can use except the password you created and if you know this password then you can remove it permanently using the BIOS configuration. Moving this hard drive into another laptop will not work either, it won't allow access to this hard disk.
Your only option is to purchase a new hard drive to replace the one with the password.
If you also created a BIOS password, you need this password to get into the BIOS configuration.

All these passwords are created by users to prevent unauthorized access into the laptop and hard disk.

I have a hard drive password that i need to remove please help i need to know where the rtc battery is on a acer


The password that was created on the hard drive (especially if it came from an IBM, or HP/Compaq) cannot be removed by removing the BIOS battery. The password is stored on the firmware chip and there are no backdoor passwords.
The power on password and hard disk password are created from the BIOS setup and it is stored on an EEPROM chip on the laptop.
These password protection methods are designed to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop its data and the hard disk data. Removing the hard disk and inserting it into another computer will not work.
