Hhd security lock reset password



Download the HDD Unlock Wizard diagnostic tool free from the link on the HDD Unlock page. The program allows you to test the program to see if it can recognize your hard disk before you attempt to unlock your drive. Double-click the icon in the "Downloads" folder and click "Run" to launch the program setup, then follow the HDD Unlock Wizard Setup Wizard to install.

Open the Unlock Wizard and click "Next" to get to the drive selection screen. The program automatically displays any drive that it can recognize in the "Drive selection" window and its status.

Select the name of the hard drive from the "Drive selection" window. Click "Next" to move into the status screen of the Wizard, then "Next" again to move to the unlock screen.

Go to the HDD Unlock page and purchase a virtual unlock card code for the program. The code will be emailed the email address you provide on the website. You must have an unlock code in order to complete the unlocking process with the HDD Unlock Wizard.

Enter your code into the provided box in the HDD Unlock Wizard. Once the code is entered, the Wizard will unlock the hard disk by erasing the data and re-certifying the drive, restoring it to its original factory settings.

Shut down the computer and boot it back up after the Unlock Wizard is finished the unlocking process. The computer hard disk should be unlocked and restored to factory settings.

1. Repair Station

Download the Repair Station diagnostic tool from HDD Tools and install it on your computer. Unlike HDD Unlock Wizard, Repair Station attempts to unlock the hard disk without erasing the information on the drive.

Register with your name and email address and create a login and password on the HDD Tools page. You must have a login and password to use the Repair Station tool.

Open Repair Station on your computer and go through the program screens to run the diagnostic test on your hard drive. If the hard disk appears in the list of available drives, Repair Station can unlock it.

Buy a Repair Station license code. The code will be emailed to the email address you provide. Enter the code into the provided box in the Repair Station application. Repair Station will attempt to unlock only the firmware area of the hard disk, without affecting the other information stored on the disk.

Restart the computer when Repair station is finished working. The hard disk should be unlocked without any effect on the rest of the system

My sony viao pcgn505a is very slow when i open it. It has also a samok virus and very slow internet connection. Please help how to reformat it and where to get drivers for it. Thanks.


I would suggest try avoiding formatting. Because if you do that, then the next problem you will face is to find, download and install all the drivers.

If you are using the Genuine Windows operating system, then download 'Microsoft Security Essentials' for free from the Microsoft website. This should take care of your viruses.

Second get the latest Service pack provided by Microsoft and this should update the drivers.

And basic things, like removing unnecessary files, Defrag you hard disk, etc should also add up to the speed.

Double Click My Computer.
Double Click the drive where windows are installed. This is typically drive C.
Double Click the windows folder. This is typically C:\Windows.
Double Click the temp folder. This is typically C:\Windows\temp.
Press control A to select all files and folders.
Press the delete key.
If confirmation is asked to delete these files choose yes to all.

Close all applications.
Disable your screen saver.
Disable all the programs on the taskbar if possible.
Click Start.
Click Program.
Click Accessories.
Click System Tools.
Click Defrag.
Select the drive to defrag.

You should defrag every hard disk on your system.
This process can take quite some time.
Click Ok.
Enable your screen saver.


Remove Startup programs (if you know what you are doing)
Click Start
Select Run
Type msconfig in the text box
The "System Configuration Utility" window will open

A list of programs will be shown each having a checkbox to the left of the name.
Click on the checkbox to enable the program (so it runs when windows boots) and click a second time to Uncheck the box to disable the program (so it does not run when windows boots).


Set the size of the virtual memory (swap file) to a constant optimal size.
Right click My Computer
Click Properties
The System Properties window lists the amount of RAM in your PC
Click Performance
Click Virtual Memory
Click Let me specify my own virtual memory settings
Click the arrow next to the hard disk.
Here are some guidelines to choose the best location for your virtual memory file
a) Select the quickest hard disk.
b) If you have, two hard disks that are similar in performance select the hard disk that does not contain Windows system files (usually C:).
c) Make sure the drive has free space equal to at least twice the size of the recommended swap file size.
d) If the partition is on the same physical drive, select the partition in alphabetical order. For example, if you have one 20GB hard disk and you partition it into two 10GB partitions drive C & D) You should pick Drive C over Drive D if meets all the guidelines of a, b & c.

Set the Minimum/Maximum to: With large hard disks settings at least 128mb or 256mb swap file should be sufficient in almost every situation.
Note: The amount of RAM plus the size of the virtual memory file is the maximum amount of RAM you can use at once.
Click OK.
After setting the size of the virtual memory file windows will display the following message. You have chosen not to let windows manage virtual memory automatically.
Click Yes.
You must restart your computer before the new settings will take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?

Click Yes

regards
