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.

Opera Master Password Recovery


The master password under the Opera browser protects the user sensitive informations such as user saved passwords from being copied/accessed locally. Now what happens if you forget your Opera master password? Especially, there is nothing worse than failing to fill out the user’s name and password of sites that have been stored.
Fortunately, Opera Master Password Recovery is a great Utility to remove the Master Password in the Opera web browser and the problem solved. http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/operamasterpasswordrecovery.html

I have a dell inspiron 1300 laptop with service tag: #CBWBD2J-595B and i need system/bios password for it.Any help is appreciated?


To unlock your laptop using the easiest method available go to: http://dell-inspiron-1300-bios-password.biospwd.com

Dell password authentication system explained :

The BIOS of most modern computers also allow a password to be set for each of the connected hard drives. This password is stored in the service area of the hard disk. Because of this, moving the password protected hard drive to a new computer does not allow access to the hard drive unless the password that was assigned to the hard drive is provided.
The ATA Security Mode Feature Set that is implemented in all modern hard drives actually provides for two passwords, a "Master Password" and a "User Password"
The User Password locks the hard drive and the Master Password is only used to allow an administrator to reset the user password.
The BIOS of many computers will not allow the master password for the hard drive to be changed from the default, so they rarely are. A quick search of Google.com for the specific model of hard drive with the phrase "ATA Master Password" will generally result in multiple web pages that contain the default master password . Hardware tools can recover, reset, or brute-force both the User and Master Passwords.

Full Disk Encryption Methods:

There are two major categories of full disk encryption (FDE)-software-based and hardware-based. Software-based encryption modifies the hard drive drivers and uses the CPU to encrypt all data as it is written to the drive and decrypt all data read from the hard drive. Hardware-based full disk encryption is built into the hard drive and is totally transparent to the user and does not impose a performance impact on the computer.
Software-Based Full Disk Encryption
Wikipedia maintains a lengthy list of disk encryption software The two most popular FDE software implementations are TrueCrypt and BitLocker. BitLocker is included as a feature in the Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7, but has to be enabled and configured to provide protection. TrueCrypt [18] is free open source software that is ideal for individual users, but lacks management features that make it attractive to enterprise-wide deployment.
Deployment of software-based full disk encryption in any organization with more than just a few computers requires careful consideration of how the encryption keys will be managed. Great encryption without proper key management is like locking the doors to your house and leaving the key under your doormat. One study on the usage of encryption states that 54 percent of respondents had experienced either stolen or unaccounted for encryption keys and that 78 percent experienced system downtime due to encryption failures in the past twelve months [20]. Full Disk Encryption solutions that are targeted at the enterprise typically offer integration with Microsoft's Active Directory or other LDAP directories for secure key management.
In 2008, security researchers created shockwaves by publishing a paper called Lest We Remember: Cold Boot Attacks on Encryption Keys [21]. This paper, and the accompanying YouTube video demonstrate how Software-Based FDE can be circumvented by rebooting a computer that has been left in a locked-screen or sleep state. The attack exploits the fact that Dynamic Random Access Memory

After boot, appears ENTER PRIMARY MASTER HDD USER Password i need the password @ solution to boot up my lappy... thanks


How Do I Change the Primary Master HDD User Password?

Prior to loading an operating system, your computer will first execute the BIOS program. The BIOS has an extra password feature, called the hard disk drive (HDD) user password, that can't be bypassed and provides a layer of defense to keep your data secure. To change an existing HDD user password you will have to load the BIOS menu, which is only accessible during the computer's operating system reboot procedure.

Instructions

1. Close any windows that are currently open on your computer. Eject any discs inserted into the optical drive and disconnect any peripheral USB devices.

2. Open the "Start" menu and select "Shut Down." Turn on your computer once the operating system finishes shutting down.

3. Press the key your computer uses to load the BIOS menu. For example, with Dell computers tap "F2" when the "Press F2 for Setup" option appears. Press the "Access IBM" key on IBM laptops or "F10" on HP desktops.

4. Navigate to the BIOS tab that contains the HDD password option, which will usually be the "Security" tab. Some computer manufactures instead include the password option in the "Advanced" tab.

5. Scroll down to the option labeled either "User Password" or "BIOS lock" and hit "Enter." Type the current master HDD user password when the prompt appears and press "Enter."

6. Input a new HDD user password and hit "Enter" again. Navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Exit" or something similar.

7. Move over to the "Save and Exit" entry and press "Enter." Select "Yes" and tap "Enter."

My hdd lock pasward ,ask me to put user hdd pasward. and i forget it what can i do?


Unlocking a password protected harddisk During development of the Rockbox firmware, on several occations the harddisk has become locked, i.e. password protected. This results in the Archos displaying:
Part. Error
Pls Chck HD
We are still not 100% sure why it happened. Theories range from low-power conditions to accidental chip select failure. It has also happened for normal users, using the standard Archos-supplied firmware, although it was more frequent for us developers.
Note: None of us developers have experienced this problem since march 2002.
We do however know how to unlock the disk:
Windows/DOS unlock Note: This requires taking the Archos apart, which will void your warranty!
  1. Grab atapwd (written by Alex Mina)
  2. Create a bootable DOS floppy disk, and put atapwd.exe on it
  3. Remove the harddisk from your Archos and plug it into a laptop (or a standard PC, using a 3.5" => 2.5" IDE adapter)
  4. Boot from the floppy and run atapwd.exe
  5. Select the locked harddrive and press enter for the menu
  6. For Fujitsu disks: Choose "unlock with user password", then "disable with user password". The password is empty, so just press enter at the prompt.
  7. For Toshiba and Hitachi disks, if the above doesn't work: Choose "unlock with master password", then "disable with master password". The password is all spaces.
  8. Your disk is now unlocked. Shut down the computer and remove the disk.
Big thanks to Magnus Andersson for discovering the Fujitsu (lack of) user password!
There is also a program for win32, ArchosUnlock.exe, that creates a linux boot disk with the below mentioned patched isd200 driver.
Linux unlock For those of us using Linux, we have written an isd200 driver patch for unlocking the disk. This modified driver will automatically unlock the disk when you connect your Archos via USB, so you don't have to do anything special. Apply the patch to a 2.4.18 linux kernel tree.
Still locked? If the above suggestions don't work, here's some background info about the disk lock feature:
The disk lock is a built-in security feature in the disk. It is part of the ATA specification, and thus not specific to any brand or device.
A disk always has two passwords: A User password and a Master password. Most disks support a Master Password Revision Code, which can tell you if the Master password has been changed, or it it still the factory default. The revision code is word 92 in the IDENTIFY response. A value of 0xFFFE means the Master password is unchanged.
A disk can be locked in two modes: High security mode or Maximum security mode. Bit 8 in word 128 of the IDENTIFY response tell you which mode your disk is in: 0 = High, 1 = Maximum.
In High security mode, you can unlock the disk with either the user or master password, using the "SECURITY UNLOCK DEVICE" ATA command. There is an attempt limit, normally set to 5, after which you must power cycle or hard-reset the disk before you can attempt again.
In Maximum security mode, you cannot unlock the disk! The only way to get the disk back to a usable state is to issue the SECURITY ERASE PREPARE command, immediately followed by SECURITY ERASE UNIT. The SECURITY ERASE UNIT command requires the Master password and will completely erase all data on the disk. The operation is rather slow, expect half an hour or more for big disks. (Word 89 in the IDENTIFY response indicates how long the operation will take.)

Locked out of my labtop


If it's a Windows password, then enter safe mode at start up by pressing F8, log in as administrator, from here you can clear any user passwords from the user accounts section. If this is a bios password you will need to contact Dell support directly for the master code to unlock the board.
