If this is a built in harddrive and part of a computer desktop or laptop then u can reset the password by removing the CMOS button battery which is located on the mother board inside the compter case for 5 minutes, if it is a stand alone drive then there is no way other than a format top remove the password protection

I forgot my hdd password and cant get into it is there a way to get passed it please help me


There are companies that will open your hdd for you at a fee but there will be no data on it as it is all encrypted.
Purchase a new hdd, install your OS and programmes on it and never forget your password again.

HDD password rmove


The HDD password encrypts the windows and other files. The password is there to protect the owner and the owner composed the password out of any combination of alpha numeric and other signs. There is no "Master Password" as that would undermine the security.
Sorry.

I got a laptop as a gift and it was working fine but now it is asking me for a HDD/SSD user password and i dont have a password for it is there anyway iam able to bypass it please help me


An HDD/SSD password is located on the HDD itself and cannot be accessed to change it like Operating system passwords can be.

It is at sector level and only manufacturer can advise.May be easier (and cheaper) to replace the HDD.

Hdd password pops up and hasn't been setup to ask for it. After trying several words it pops up Hdd error {06801]


Hi,
Thank you for contacting Fixya. This is Anil.
I understand that whenever you turn ON the computer it pops for HDD password.

It appears that someone has set an HDD password on your computer. Inorder to reset it please follow the steps mentioned below:
If you have forgot BIOS/HDD password then you have to reset CMOS jumper setting. Please follow the below steps: Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battrey, remove it & then with the help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a screwdriver while turning ON). It will short the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battrey & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

I believe the above resolution should resolve the issue, however, if the issue still persists, please contact us. We will be glad to help you.
Thank you. Have Great Day.

Regards,
Anil.B.R

Hi ive got a dell vostro 100 pp23lb and when i switch it on it ask me for the hdd password and will not go any further. can you help thanks...


Hi,

I believe you changed the settings on the BIOS screen, enabling the system password/HDD password. The only way you can access windows is by typing the password you created. But if you already forgot it. Dell technical support can reset the password for you. Dell supervisors have access on reseting it.

Hope this helps.

Boot the computer in safe mode. You will be able to go in and reset your password. and once you are running you can always install your normal password. Depending on the operationg system usually F10 or F2 or on some the DEL key will get you into the safe mode.. Good Luck easy do once you are in safe mode....

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.
