There are two areas that you could add a password, one is your user account, and the other is set in the bios. Watch you screen carefully at start of a boot for directions to access bios set up.

Xp200 power on password


Power On password The Power on Password and hard drive password is used to protect the laptop/computer and hard disk from unauthorized access.
The hard drive password is setup in the BIOS you need the hard disk password to remove the password. I'm afraid you may have purchased a stolen laptop/computer. It is impossible to remove a hard drive's password there are no backdoor passwords because the password is stored in the hard drive's firmware. If the laptop/computer has a Power on Password then this laptop cannot boot up.
If the hard drive is password protected then remove the existing drive, replace it with a new hard drive may fix the laptop/computer r BUT it may also set a password on the new hard disk and lock it with the same password. If it does not password protect the new hard drive, then install Windows plus laptop/computer's device drivers and programs to get a working laptop/computer.

Power-on password on hp 8510p


Power On Password & Hard Disk Password
With your next laptop you should protect it with a Power On Password AND put a password on your hard disk. This will stop anyone from using your laptop and if they move the hard disk from your laptop to another laptop they cannot access the data on your hard disk with the hard disk password.
BUT you need to write down or remember these passwords; if you lose or forget them you cannot gain access to your laptop.
There are no backdoor passwords to remove these passwords.
To set up or change these passwords, go to the BIOS configuration - then security configuration. http://techtips.salon.com/reset-hp-laptop-bios-password-1476.html

Hi, i have a toshiba l305 laptop i often to ask hdd password to open. but i am scared to have it, as well more difficult for me to rebuilt


The hard disk password is used to protect data on your hard disk.
If the hard disk is moved to another laptop the hard disk cannot be access unless you enter the password.
To remove the hard disk, go into your laptop BIOS configuration - security - BIOS & Hard disk password - go to hard disk password - remove password (you need to enter the hard disk password to get permission to remove this password).
