You did not stated where, is this on your computer? on the darddrive? on the operating system?

removing password from computer or harddrive is beyond scope of this forum. if password is on windows xp matter is relatively simple.

1. boot computer in safe mode (pressing f8 key during startup will give you choice)
2. log in as administrator
3. press "start"
4. select "control panel"
5. select "users"
6 . remove password
7. restart computer and use normally

if this do not work, find on the net any of free available password removal programs, create self-boot floppy or cd with program, follow instructions.

Unlock hdd/ssd password on toshiba satellite


Step 1Turn on your laptop. Press the "F2" key when the first loading screen appears. This will load the BIOS. You'll only have a second or two to press this key before Windows begins to boot. If you're not fast enough and the Windows screen comes up, simply restart and try again.
Step 2Use the right-arrow key to highlight the "Security" tab. This is the third tab from the right.
Step 3Press the down-arrow to enter the Security Settings menu. Scroll down to "User Password," listed beneath the "HDD/SSD Password Select." This will open a pop-up window with three text fields.
Step 4Type your current password into the "Current Password" field. Press "Enter." Type your new password into the "New Password" field and press "Enter." Type the same password again into the "Confirm New Password" field and press "Enter." The "Password" window will close.
Step 5Press the "F10" key to save your new settings and exit the BIOS. Your laptop will now boot normally.
TipHDD password can be changed as many times as necessary. However, once you enable password protection, you can never delete it.

Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite L350D laptop which when booted up asks for a HDD password (which I do not remember setting at any point). As I understand it, the password is stored on the eeprom on the...


HDD passwords are designed to be 100% secure and there is nothing available to reset or remove the HDD password whether the password failure is caused by human error or HDD defect.
Users must ensure they have regular backups.Unfortunately,a new HDD will be required and is not covered by the standard warranty.

Hi Good day!! well i think your board didn't detect your HDD for some reason:
1. unexpected shutdown
2. cable not properly connect in HDD to motherboard
3. HDD have been damage because of improper shutdown.

here are the step to detect your HDD
1.pull out your cable from the HDD and then re-insert it make sure it its inserted properly.
2.go to CMOS and then in the "MAIN menu" check the primary master, primary slave, etc. in the primary master your HDD should be detect there. if not enter your primary master for auto detecting.
if nothing happens and still not detected you must replace the cable of your HDD.

Pls. Reply to help you more

Replaced hdd on emachine w3615,light on mobo but it wont come on.


Hi ipackrat21, that little green led you see is telling you the motherboard has standby power. (Its supposed to be green & on).
Make sure the hdd jumper is set to, master without a slave). In a one hdd system.
When you replaced the hdd you also need to enter the bios menu.
In the bios you'll need to make some changes. First you should see the new hdd listed in the bios. (Normally it list the hdd by model). If your hdd is shown than go to the title "BOOT". You need to set the boot order. A normal boot order would list like so;
First boot device, Floppy disk drive".
Second boot device, "CR-ROM" drive.
Third boot device, "Your new hdd".
If your bios does not see your hdd you'll need to re-check the data cable from the board to the drive. (Make sure it is fully connected).
If the drive is an IDE/PATA make sure it has power. A 4-pin molex.

010e000.jpg Good luck ipackrat21!
Still have trouble, post it here.

Hdd password


Hi when you say hdd password.. do you mean the boot password? if this is the case, then you could try unpluggin the pc, pres and hold the power button for about 10 secs, removing the bois battery, then putting everything back together. This will wipe the bios, and the password.
