Question about Acer Aspire 3100-1405 Notebook
It looks like you activated a hard drive security feature or you acquired a stolen laptop. Without the password, this is a "over and out"... nothing, not even the drive manufacturer can recover your data or make the drive work again. You need to replace the hard drive with a new one.

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

the only solution is for you to call the acer tech support and they can generate a password for you to gain access to your hard drive and bios.

HDD passwords can be removed by the manufacture and some shops that possess the tools to do so. for the average user, once the password is applied unless you have the original it is there forever.
if you install a new HDD the old password will go with it and you will not have one on the new one unless you set it. Once the new HDD is in the system you will have lost all your data so you will need to format the drive and install the OS all over again.
