You will probably have to replace the hard drive.Hard drive passwords are virtually impossible to remove even if you try it with another computer internally or externally

I dont have permission to open my files


It sounds like you need to 'Take Ownership' of the files on your new computer - this is something you can do with a Hard drive formatted with the Windows / NTFS File system (You will need to be logged on with Administrator privileges on your new computer) - Connect your old hard drive to your new computer (using a USB interface / or directly via SATA / IDE) Open your 'My Computer' Folder using windows Explorer - Right Click the drive representing your old hard drive and choose Properties > Security > Advanced > Owner --- Click the Edit button and change the owner to the account you are currently logged on with -- then save and close the security properties dialog - The Next time you open the security properties dialog you should be able to change the level of access to "allow everything" - If this is applied to an entire Hard Drive and you choose to change the owner on all sub directories and items within them it may take several minutes or even longer with a large drive 500 GB / 1 TB etc...

Hitachi sata 120 gb hard disk lock & password



When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also if this is a desktop computer

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

I bought a laptop at a garage sale for 50 bucks. It is an hp pavilion ze 4500. Its hard drive seems to be wiped clean which is fine but now at start up it asks for a password which I dont have and cant get...


Well, you have two options. If it is still running XP as an OS, then you can use the backdoor. When you first start up the computer, and you come to the log in screen, press ctrl + alt + del twice, and the screen should change to a different log in area. Here, type in Administrator as a username, and leave the password blank. This should bypass the need for the regular user password. Once you log in, I would recommend going to control panel, and under user account (or something similar), change the username and password of the account that could not be logged into.
Your second option can be done with any windows OS. You can reinstall the OS, and, if you desire, keep the data on the computer. Obviously, this will be much more time consuming. You will also need an installation disc, or a device with the equivalent software to one on it.
Actually, you can always upgrade your OS too, if desired. Although, you might now be able to keep the data on the computer.
Hope this helps.

Getting a blue screen stop error, but cant log


Please try to start from the beginning and reformat the hard drive by shutting down the system with the cd drawer open. Then insert the windows disk and turn on the pc then the drawer closes and when it tells you boot from cd press enter. Then windows will load. It will give you a couple of options. Always choose format partition. Then you should not have any problems. Unless your hard drive is bad.

Need help to reset a note book i bought on bootsale, i cant log on windows, it does come on, but i have to enter the password, which i dont have, help


If the password it's requesting is the BIOS password then there's not way around it. You may be able to reflash the BIOS via a program downloaded from ASUS but there's not guarantee.

If the password is Windows, the easiest way around it is to reformat the hard drive and re-install a fresh copy of windows.
