Hi,

If this is a BIOS password, it will be difficult to to bypass without removing the CMOS battery.

If it is a windows password, you will need to reinstall the OS.

How do I change hdd/ssd password?


So you bought a second-hand SSD drive (or a computer with an SSD) and it's password protected?
There's no way to remove this password. Period. Your only option is to ask the person who sold you the SSD.

Buying a used laptop with a password protected bios


Folks when you are considering buying a used laptop. NEVER buy one that has a password protected bios. If you are looking at it and its not in a Windows screen asking for a password DONT buy it unless the seller shows you they can log on past it. Then make sure in that case you have that password when you leave. There is NO bios password work around, no program that can get past a firmware password at all. I think today I posted at least 10 times the same answer for people asking for a bios password. If they say they forgot it then that laptop is a paper weight unless your buying it for parts only.

Have a Dell inspiron 1525 laptop originally I could not control anything on it because I bought it 2nd hand and did not have admin password


If it won't accept the hdd password you set, you must purchase a new hdd and install windows and drivers and all of your programs before restoring your data from a backup.

Cant get passed password screen


I would recommend you go back to the seller and ask for it or your money back, because you will end up paying additional money. Go to www.ebay.com Type: bios password and list of sellers claiming to clear the password will be presented.

I bought a second hand hp probook4520s laptop.ti locked i dont know the password.how can i reset the password


Which password:

* the one that must be entered as soon as you power-on the computer?

* the one that must be entered when the computer accesses the password-protected disk-drive?

* the one that must be entered at the Windows "logon" screen?

Have you asked the seller of the computer to give you the password?
