To reset the BIOS password you must take out the BIOS battery on the motherboard of the computer.

On most desktops this is not a hard thing. Simply take off the side of the case, then take out the quarter sized battery on the motherboard, wait 60 seconds then reinstall.

On a laptop the same thing must be done but I must recommend you take it to a local Tech as this is not an easy thing to do if you have never opened up your laptop.

Locked myself out of my hard drive by putting a password on it in BIOS. I cleared the admin and user pwd's, but came up with a new one for the drive. I can't remember it.


You can either remember it to use your hdd or purchase a new hdd and start again with a fresh OS then restoring your data from your backups.

ID FROZEN ON MY ACER ASPIRE V5-471. I NEVER PUT A HDD PASSWORD IN IT WHEN I BOUGHT THE LAPTOP 4 YEARS AGO.HOW CAN I FIX THAT.


Does it makes any kind of sound when you boot? Is the HDD frozen or is it password protected? If it makes a clicking sound when you boot the computer then the HDD pointer inside the HDD is stuck.
If you can get to the BIOS, you can delete any password from the BIOS. If the HDD does not shows up in the BIOS, then your HDD is probably fry.

The HDD password is a BIOS function. A password is set and passed to the HDD. Then the BIOS on power up sends the password to the HDD and unlocks it on each boot. It could be your HDD is dead and so when BIOS sends pwd to HDD there is no response.Try BIOS reset to defaults

You should try www.unlockbiosrecovery.com and for $20 they will send you a bios master password that will clear any bios passwords set. I use them in my laptop repairs quite often.They also unlock hard drives on laptops for most brands.

You may be able to use backdoor bios password, not all bios chips have them, but its worth a try, check HERE
IF it is a HDD password and not a bios password, buy a new HD. You would need to install a OS and drivers, but you may be able to attach the old drive in a caddy and retrieve the contents.

If this does not work for you, please write back and i am sure we will fix it

Samsung 200gb hdd


When u bought a new hdd, it shud not have any partition on it. but in ur case, I assume u have formatted it to ntfs but no operating system is installed in it.

If u want to make the new hdd as slave and have another old hdd as primary, that have already an operating system installed in it, then the problem shud be hdd boot priority in bios. Enter ur bios and check for hdd boot priority and put the old hdd to the top most order, then restart. this shud fix the problem.

If u installed OS in ur new hdd (win xp),
1) ntldr or ntdetect.com is missing on root dir. (c:\). If u have another computer that works and have xp installed, just put this new hdd along with the current hdd and boot to windows. Copy ntldr and ntdetect.com to your new hdd. Or another way is just repair using windows xp boot cd.
2)the windows partition is not set 'active'. to set active, boot into winxp setup and press 'r'. this will lead to recovery console. type ur passwrod for admin (def=none). use diskpart command to set active. for easy way, put the new hdd to another computer. boot to windows. rightclick my computer, choose manage. on left pane select disk manager. rightclick on ur partition, then set active.

Hope this help
