Hmmm..is this at the main log on page? you'll need to reboot and go to setup, and change the password at admin level...be careful not to change anything else though

    ahh...I see...you need a password to get into your main log in screen....lost you there for a moment..ok..you'll see a password hint(looks like a question mark) click on that, and tell me what it says, and more importantly, what you believe it means.

    is this your computer?

My laptop turned off and now its asking for a primary user hdd password witch i dont have how do i unlock it?


You have to unlock the hard drive from within BIOS if you don't want to see that screen again. However, if you don't know that password then the laptop is not going to usable by you. Normally this prevents access to a computer in case someone steals it, since the thief won't know the hdd password and can't unlock it to access any data.

Sir, My name is Valentine am in South Africa i which to ask if you can help me with some information on how to unlocked my lenovo laptop. the HDD1 built in pass word was setup by my brother mistakenly...


I have the same concern as yours I hope that the procedural that I did could help you as well.

1. removed hdd from laptop`s tray (with power OFF)
2. powered ON the laptop and entered in BIOS SETUP
3. as the hdd was removed the BIOS read at 1st ata device but i was able to select field, which had as options
4. select option and the "manual" options for the hdd appear
5. don`t change anything, remain on that page and insert the HDD drive in the tray. as it powers up the bios completed me the field vith the values for my hdd automatically.
6. go back to the field "1st ata device" and selected the option
7. go to the bios SECURITY section and in the field "HDD Password" enter a password of your choice (but remember or note it down)
8. EXIT the bios setup and SAVE CHANGES (and reboot)
9. at the HDD prompt i found now the password matched the one i entered
10. run the bios setup again and remove the hdd password for easy use purpose..

that`s it, how it did work for me. now, i believe this steps to be usefull for anyone else.
my bios type is award medallion v6.0 but i hope to work on other versions as well...
