HDD Master passwords generally disable access to the HDD altogether. I used to be a Toshia technician and if you wanted to get rid of the HDD master Password, you needed to get a new HDD. It is recommended that you take the laptop to your local service repairer for that brand, and they may be able to use a workaround or use a backdoor password, but I wouldn't hold out that hope.

The other option is to get your sister to reset the HDD master password.

Cant remember my password and i dont know how to change it


Suggest take the Netbook to the nearest Sylvania authorized computer repair shop, and;
1) Proof of ID
2) Proof of ownership, (Receipt of purchase)]
3) Credit card

The tech will obtain a Master password. From there the tech will either put a password on you want, or disable password.
The tech keeps the Master password.

How do I change the Primary Master HDD Master Password?


You've got a real problem. I'm not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when there is a computer that has a lock on the Hard Drive and the person in possession of the computer don't know the password, the computer is stolen. The Hard Drive Password is put on to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. It could be set by the real owner remotely once they realized the system was missing.

Hi,
When you start up the computer press ctrl+alt+delete twice. Then in the password box that appears type 'administrator' in the username and hit enter. Then once you are in the admin account hit start then control panel--> users --> your account. Then change password.
Please rate this solution.Regards.
