    Acer Aspire 5050. Switched on and outof the blue got "Enter Primary Master HDD User Password". Removed the CMOS battery and reset bios. Now, can get into the BIOS and can change the Password, but it requires the original password WHICH I DON'T KNOW!!!!! Had the HDD out and into a USB drive caddy but my PC won't recognise it. Have tried Disk Utilities but it won't let me boot from CD unless the HDD is not present!!! Still staring at the same screen! Oh yes, after three attempts I get message "Hdd password error code [14116]". Adendum: after the third attempt, my machine booted from the CD :) will report back later

The solution is to go to BIOS and u can enable and disable the HDD password query item. U can disable it and u can run ur computer again.

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

Well I've tried every possible variation on re-setting the bios, battery out, jumper, switching on and off and the problem is still there. Nearest I've come to a solutions is this: I bought a new hard drive and re-installed everything!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had backups of most things so didn't mind too much throwing the problem drive in the bin. A bit severe you might think, but it was the only way I could get my laptop back. Best of luck to all:)

Lenny is incorrect, i'm having the same problem and already looked into a cmos wipe, that's not going to work as a HDD password is stored, as one would guess, ON THE HARDDRIVE.... no luck yet, sorry.

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.

Need to bypass primary master HDD user password


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.
