In order for you to have the master password, have to contact and call Hitachi support. If they don't have. My piece of advise as a solution, either have a new motherboard or have it to be repair in the Service Center.

MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I Disable the "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK" on my hitachi HTS54503289a300, 320 GB sata hard Drive? originally WAS INTALLED IN MY ACER TRAVELMATE LAPTOP NANUFACTURED IN 2012 BUT THE LAP


Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers

I have a aspire one Acer and when I turn it on it says in a blue box, Harddisk Security and under it says Primary Master Hitachi HTS543216L9SLock. What can I do to restore it?


The drive is locked by a BIOS level Hard drive password. You can either contact Acer about a master password or replace the HDD since the password data is stored on the drive itself

I have a extra hitachi hdd 30 gb ..i want it to be a external hard drive.. i reformat it already and the hitachi hdd 30gb is now in the external enclosure.. the problem now is that my computer didnt...


1. Decide which hard drive will be the startup (master) drive. If this drive was the startup drive previously, or if it's a new hard drive, then the master drive designation will already be set.
2. To change the designation of a new drive to be a slave drive, skip to step 4.
3. To change the designation of an existing drive to be a slave drive: Turn off the computer, unplug the power cord, remove the drive from its drive bay, and disconnect the drive from its power cord and ribbon cable.
4. Check the hard drive documentation or the label on the drive itself for master/slave jumper settings.
5. Find the jumpers on the circuit board of the drive. Jumpers are plastic plugs with metal sleeves that form a circuit between a pair of pins. Jumper locations are labeled on the board with a J followed by a number (such as J20).
6. Use tweezers or very small pliers to remove or reposition the jumpers to the configuration shown in the documentation or on the disk label.

Master Password for 2.5'' Hitachi laptop HDD


if locked while booting up, before even windows is loading: you've got a master password in BIOS to worry about.No way but to ask the manufacturer to remove it.
if you cannot access windows anymore after booting up:
boot up from a win cd, go through setup,
install a new copy of windows and try to find your personal files on the disk, back them up and reboot from a win cd again, this time format the whole harddisk and set up a clean, new installlation of windows.(warning: all beforehand data will permanently lost then)

good luck

ASUS P4S533 mother board not supporting full 160 gb


This is happing becuase of your motherboards BIOS !
Really, this happened to me too. You see, our motherboards which are very old cant support above 80 and so on. This is beacuse of the BIOS. You will need to update your BIOS inorder to give new features.

Try go to the Asus home page and download the latest driver for your motherboard. Then install it in your motherboard's BIOS. There is intructions for this in the Asus's home page.
