Hi.

The hard drive lock is an anti theft measure that is triggered when the computer is disassembled and hard drive removed. The purposes are protecting the computer from theft and protecting privacy of data in hard drive.

The key is held in an external chip, if the problem is locked hard drive, and not the BIOS password, then the hard drive can only be unlocked by manufacturer.

If the password has not been set by you, but the hard drive went into lock mode on its own, and if the laptop has not been disassembled, then the unlock job will be done for free by Acer. Here the repair link.

How can i fix my acer notebook?i cant open bcos thy have unlock password? when i try to open my laptop it is show up the harddisk security,,, primary master WDC WD1600BEVT-22ZCTLOCK. WHEN i press...


You need to log into the bios and edit the hdd password...
You can press DEL or F2 key when you power ON the laptop... It will take you to the bios setup...
You can navigate in the bios to reach the hard drive password section and you can set the password as blank...
Once you are done press F10 to save the changes and exit out of it...

If it doesnt works, then you can give a try by restoring the BIOS to its factory defaults(using the restore defaults option in bios) which should turn OFF the Bios HDD security feature...

Kid lost password how do you reboot without disk diver?


Hello,
This is a suggestion but may work. Try to get into the bios and edit the hdd password. I believe you either press DEL key when you power on the laptop or it might be F2, not quite sure. You will have to navigate in the bios to reach the set hard drive password section. Set to blank password and see if it allows you to boot.

Thanks,
Lolita
