Hdd master password how do I unlock


Google for atapwd or "ata password" its part of the new ATA spec. You can enter a "master password" that will remove the "user password" that has be setup on the drive. This master password is manufacturer specific. So search your hard drive manufacturers website for google around for a list of master passwords. Remember you CAN lock out your drive. This is bad. You can always remove the password without the master password but when you do it using that method the drive will be wiped. So the only way to solve this is to find a master password or try and work out what user password was set on the hard drive.

Remove password hdd toshiba mk3275gsx


1. The HDD password cannot be removed using Security Assist.
2. Using SETUP BIOS (i.e. start machine; Hold Esc; Press F1), Tab to the HDD Password section which should be displayed as follows:
HDD Password
HDD = Built-in HDD
HDD Password Mode = USER Only
User Password = Registered
3. Tab to the "User Password" field and simply enter the old password and then a new one twice (once to verify) as one would do normally. If you don't want a password, just press "enter" twice.

Hope above steps helps you. :)

Toshiba nb505 the screen says enter built in hdd/ssd user password


Somehow, the HDD password has been set. Unless you can remember it, you MAY need to replace the HDD to get around this. I have 'bricked' an HDD in the past in this way.

There is a company on the Web that, for a fee, will help you break that password. The fee depends on the size of the drive. However, to get access again, the HDD will have to removed and reinstalled into an empty SATA/IDE port on a 32-bit desktop so their online server can remove the password. Might be easier just replacing the drive...

Hello i need the hdd password from laptop samsung n 135 i have ropen it en i can start him no more


The first thing you should do is check whetheryou really forget login password or not. When we install Windows, itautomatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password toblank. So if you have forget Your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, pressctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type"Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. PressEnter and you will be able to log in Windows.

Or you can get into the Safe Mode to resetyour account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". In Safe ModeWindows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

Windows versions also provide another method to recoverforgotten Password by using "Recover Disk". If you created a Password RecoveryDisk in Past, you can use that disk to reset the password. To know more aboutIt, please visit http://www.windowspasswordrecovery.net

Hi I can not unluck my maxtor external hard driver, which requires password. May you please help?


According to Lenovo and many other manufacturers’ website, if you forget your hard drive or hard disk password, there is no possible way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Basically the hard drive is unusable. Scary right? However, this is often not true.
Most people are not aware that most hard disk drives have the ability to set a hardware password, just like the Bios password for motherboards, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. Usually these features can only be found in laptops, this is when you set a password on your notebook, the hard drive together with the motherboard becomes locked.
Most experts would say if you forget the original HDD or Bios password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. Unlike the Bios password where there is a master key or with the removal of the bios battery, the password is erased from the flash memory thus the settings is restored to factory settings without the password, however, this does not applies to hard disk.
unlock_recover_remove_tool_hdd_hard_disk_drive_password_software.jpgHDD Unlock Wizard is a user-friendly application which allows you to easily remove HDD password. IDE and SATA hard disk drives are supported. Both User and Master password can be removed. Please note that while unlocking, Remember HDD Unlock Wizard will erase and re-certify the drive, meaning to say all data in the disk is lost and not recoverable. HDD Unlock Wizard incorporates proprietary unlocking algorithms which allow removing an unknown HDD password and making hard drive usable again.
Download Hdd Unlock Wizard from here
http://www.hddunlock.com/download/
It may not be possible to recover the hard drive password or to unlock it; however, it is possible to remove the password together with the data, thus making your hard disk accessible and usable again.
Or Try Hiren's boot cd in this there is a operating system which boot from direct your cd/dvd rom. try it if it may open your locked external disk. And if your hard disk open in it just copy the data from the drive to any other drives and after copying your data format it. Then you see there is no password dialog box open in your normal windows log in.And for future if you use any software for password protection try to memorize the password in your mind or write it somewhere.

Hdd password reset


Hi,
Laptops have the option to password protect for security purposes. If the laptop should be lost-stolen. this is to ensure your personnal data, cannot be accessed by any tom dick and harry.
Post your laptop model number, and i,ll see if anything can be done.
i do not endorse password removal, as the majority of the time, a user cannot prove that the laptop actually belongs to them.
I,d also feel happier if you could also prove in any way, that you are the legal owner of the laptop in question.

How to unlock or to replace the board


Maksiza, I had a customer who would had their harddrive locked. It was a DELL machine, using a travelstar drive, we called DELL verified they were the owners and they gave the master hard drive password to the hard drive and it worked beautifully. Call Samsung with the machine serial number/tag number/asset number whatever and they should have it if not try fujitsu. http://www.samsung.com/products/notebook/index.htm# http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/storage/hdd/contact/index.html The Fujitsu site looks better. Good Luck, Tim p.s. Of course we called DELL after 10 hours of searching.
