    If you know the HDD/SDD password you can fix it back. switch on your laptop and supply the HDD/SDD password and press or hold F2 to enter BIOS, go to security and on the master password press enter, supply the old password, press enter (it will move to new password) DONT TYPE ANYTHING ON THE NEW PASSWORD, just press enter and on the confirm new password just press enter and lastly F10 and enter to accept the changes.

SOURCE: need to bypass primary master HDD user password

I would recommend that u take it to a technician but if u can be able to open it u need to remove the cmos jumber inorder to clear the cmos settings, also try to remove the system battery switch on the notebook and the switch it off after a few seconds, replace the battery and switch it on again. It should laod up with default settings which might make other devices not to work since the settings where cleared, so u need to reconfigure the Bio's settings again

There is a freeware called Killcmos. You can find it using google. But this is no guarantee and could possibly damage your bios.


Hope this helps.

Bypass HDD password


From what I understand, the hard drive can be set with a password so the drive can't be used in any other computer or even opened if stolen. It is different from windows or bios passwords, and no password unlocker can open it.

You need to call the manufactor of the pc, and have all the information about the computer handy so it can be proven you are the legal owner. They are the only ones that I know of that might be able to reset or disable the HD password.
