Never heard of a 'hard drive code' before.. You don't mean a BIOS password, do you?? If it is a bios password, there is most likely a switch or 'jumper pin' on the motherboard, that will reset the bios to default. That will get rid of the password. If this is not helpful, please describe what happens when you try to start the pc..? Maybe more info will help sort this out. Go to the website of the manufacturer & look for your model of pc. It will tell you how to reset the bios password, if you need further info..

Toshiba satellite m55-s3315 hard drive password reset


Yikes. I'm not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you encounter a computer with a password on the hard drive and the possessor of the computer does not know the password, the computer is stolen.

You're out of luck. Not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you get a laptop where the person in possession of it does not know the hard drive password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner puts a lock on the Hard Drive to keep users from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have put the password lock on remotely as soon as it was stolen.

The hard drive can never be used again.

My HPdvr4 laptop was stolen im not sure if i had any tracking or anything installed on it....is there anyway possible to locate it if the person who stole it connects to the interent? thanks.


Every network-adapter (wired or wireless) in a computer has a unique 12-character code, named the 'MAC-address'.

Call the police, to report it as stolen.

Contact your ISP -- if you connected your computer with a cable directly to the cable-modem or DSL-modem, they can tell you the MAC-address. They can also look on their network for the thief making the same connection with your computer. If they find it, they will need authorization from your local police, via a warrant, to release information about the location of the thief to the police.

If you made a wireless connection to your school/employer's wireless network, they may be able to retrieve similar information.

My laptop was stolen and was recovered last night; the thief put a new admin password and i dont know how to get past it... what could i do? please advise. i have a paper due for school and im at a loss.....


In the interest of time ......

Remove your drive and use another computer to extract your info from the drive then use the recovery disk to reinstall your system,

Reinstall should only take about 45min but youll have to install all the other programes too

Hope this helps,Misterdj

Won't Boot


It appears your hard drive's MBR is wrecked.

Buy another hard drive.
Buy an external hard drive enclosure.
Replace the current bad hard drive with the new hard drive
Use your restore CD to reinstall your OS.
Put the bad hard drive in the external hard drive enclosure and acces it after your have installed the new OS.
Hopefully the MBR on your old drive is bad but you can access the data. It may also be that the hard drive is dead and you would have to send it to a data recovery service to recover it.

Do you have or did you make the recovery installation optical media [dvd or cds]. If you have the option to make the recovery media - you should do it now - as you may need to reformat the hard drive.

Acer 5050


by default acer 5050 have 3 partitions
1. OS partition (C)
2. Data (D)
3. Recovery partition (hidden).

If you deleted recovery parition, you can't recover your C parition using Alt+F10. Your only option is recovery from cd/DVD recovery that you created. if you didn't create the cd/dvd, you can call acer support to buy the recovery dvd.
