To install a new hard disk you do not need any unlocking code...If it has a BIOS password..just remove the BIOS battery for a few seconds and all passwords will be erased and the BIOs will get to the original factory settings and the manufacturing date ..
Just plug the new hdd and install the windows again ..

My trekstor hard drive installation disc is for windows 98, my lap top is windows 7. how can i make this work


You cant. If your device was supported by windows 98, its a dinosaur. There would not be windows 7 drivers written for a device so old. If you can remove the hard drive from the case it is in and acquire an IDE to usb cable with a power pack to power up the drive you can read the drive that way, assuming the hard drive was formatted NTFS.

Hhd security lock reset password



Download the HDD Unlock Wizard diagnostic tool free from the link on the HDD Unlock page. The program allows you to test the program to see if it can recognize your hard disk before you attempt to unlock your drive. Double-click the icon in the "Downloads" folder and click "Run" to launch the program setup, then follow the HDD Unlock Wizard Setup Wizard to install.

Open the Unlock Wizard and click "Next" to get to the drive selection screen. The program automatically displays any drive that it can recognize in the "Drive selection" window and its status.

Select the name of the hard drive from the "Drive selection" window. Click "Next" to move into the status screen of the Wizard, then "Next" again to move to the unlock screen.

Go to the HDD Unlock page and purchase a virtual unlock card code for the program. The code will be emailed the email address you provide on the website. You must have an unlock code in order to complete the unlocking process with the HDD Unlock Wizard.

Enter your code into the provided box in the HDD Unlock Wizard. Once the code is entered, the Wizard will unlock the hard disk by erasing the data and re-certifying the drive, restoring it to its original factory settings.

Shut down the computer and boot it back up after the Unlock Wizard is finished the unlocking process. The computer hard disk should be unlocked and restored to factory settings.

1. Repair Station

Download the Repair Station diagnostic tool from HDD Tools and install it on your computer. Unlike HDD Unlock Wizard, Repair Station attempts to unlock the hard disk without erasing the information on the drive.

I install a new motherboard for a dell studio 1735, the laptop start but in a minute after starting the laptop is off


New motherboards replaced on computers starts with several observations as regular anticipations. First the computer has to get adjusted to the new circuit arrangements. Assume that the new motherboard had all the component structures least required to malfunction. Once installed, the power circuits have to get adjusted depending on the type of components that have been installed on the new board. For example, the computer requires searching to ascertain the new means to achieving user expectation soon after configuration onto new board of circuits. The processes of the computers reconfigurations includes search every components parts comprise the new mother board. A start at power on performs basic input output devices inspections of the interior components of sound, video, storage, heating, clocks, cables, programs, and finally the external connected ports. Once the computer ascertains that the new system has the requisite details to perform desirable, it is usual to shut down automatically to restart to achieve the users expected installations. Also, the basic input output search may have discovered errors during the process and was incapable of power shutting immediately but provides the extensive nature to attaining an entire diagnosis until displaying momentarily before power shutting completely. Once the computer was able to search the entire new circuits to arrive at users momentary interface display is indication that every component is appropriate only least has the extensive capacity to display extensively. Computer automatic shut down has three possible explanations. First, the program system also known as operating system is incompatible on the computer. Usually the new mother board contains remnants of the operating system of the computer from which was extracted. Since the motherboard least contains a hard storage drive that has the operating system programs, installing a new motherboard on an old computer still with hard storage drive continues to have old programs requesting to communicate with a new circuit board. Usually, two separate operating systems are least compatible to each other where the motherboard would have for example windows 2000 installed on a windows 98 computer still with remnant hard disk drivers may attempt to power on by searching to ascertain every components, display momentarily the possible conditions to attain power shut down due to incompatibilities. Second, usually computers have component devices that operate differently. For example, similar computer may have dissimilar capacities of graphic cards where smaller computers graphic card were extracted together with the motherboard to be installed on a larger computer may not provide enough graphics capacity to display every details. Usually, the graphic card contributes to wards color resolution appearances on the computer. Compatible changes of motherboards only shy of graphics would display picture quality least achieving user visual effects. Usually advisable to change from new versions to older versions to attain update effects rather than change from older versions to new versions computer that would hardly display at power on. Third, the components that are changeable on the computers motherboard to least cause dilemmas includes entities like storage drives that may require reinstalling the operating systems as new ones are empty in content. Also, video cards, graphic cards, sound cards, expansion devices are those that add to feature improvements on the computer to attain experience. Once changing improvement devices within the motherboard, it is advisable to acquire the recent compatible to the entire computers brand model features to attain an improved experience also known as system updates or upgrades. At which point the computer should have provided in the momentary display a diagnosis observation from where adjustments to become functional is achievable. First attempting to maintain the entire motherboard changes by fixing the issues that are causing malfunctions is achievable. A hard disk drive may require erasure to capture a new system that is compatible with the entire computers components. Usually, hard storage drives are capable of causing to become volatile to allow for new operating systems software to be installed taking effect. In the situation of being unable to erase a preexisting disk, acquiring a new disk is plausible. New disk storage allows installing a new system of choice however require the entire software program. Once acquiring new disk with new software programs the computer mother board takes new effects altogether. Ascertain the functionalities of the prior existing components of the computer are necessary to acquire new disk storage and installation program software. Usually acquire a disks with vast entities to spaces to capture several new programs of operating systems, new user productivity software's and extra spaces for improvemts conditions as the computer exists. While at retail, ascertain to acquire each component parts with intent to building a whole device. The means of last resort is ascertaining the entire resources required to restore the old computer in costs to component parts, retails resources gathering if any available, inconvenience to make possible building another computer, costs of installations, technical guarantees to restore another device least recognizes as the manufacturers default. The ultimate means is discarding the old device as depleted of productivity to acquire new computer altogether. Computer resource components usually are generational where attempting to a build an old device with new parts makes the whole process redundant. The computer manufacture is most achievable entity to resort.

I had windows vesta but cant find same program for window 7. Can i take it from my old laptop to my new laptop ?


Programs are installed on the computer from package software's either as CDs or DVDs. Acquiring the entire program to be installed achieves several advantages. First, the program does not lack code complements. Second, the computer program that malfunctions would always have restore available. However, computers that are linked with networks are capable of sharing software codes. For example, once computers may request complementary codes from another to allow functionality to be achieved where one is outdated and the other recently innovative. In such an instance, the computer prescribes type of codes requested either as patch, codes, or update or upgrade. READ THE ESSAY BELOW FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS


  1. If wanting to clone or transfer operating systems from another computer where one has a malfunction deficiency in programs requesting restoration from another with system compatibilities. Prior to the process, a compatibility check has to be performed on both devices, an estimate of the damage is determined on the computer requesting cloning to ascertain if any changes in software or hardware is required prior to the initial process commencement. Thereafter, the accessories that would be required like cables to link both devices are attained before the entire cloning starts.

Usually two computers are capable of sharing one operating system considering several conditions. First, both computers have to the have same operating system where one has experienced a malfunction requiring repairs from the other. Second, both computers prior to a clone require capacity checks. Usually the host computer would need available space to create back up before the cloning process begins should any malfunction compromise both devices integrity. Second, the receptacle computer requiring cloning depending on the conditions would require available disk space to contain the entire clone programs. Usually the cause of a computer to require restoration altogether of operating system requires evaluation since most computers only have enough space to contain an operating system with user interface fonts for productivity. Estimate the conditions on the damaged computer to ascertain if an erasure of disk spaces would be required to create spaces. Also, keep in mind that computers would not clone another system of its own if remnants of the master system are recognized as being present on the hard drive disks. The process of freeing the hard disk drives of spaces for cloning is called formatting achievable with some computers. However, the condition of formatting when not possible due to crashed or program compromises may simply require changing a new empty hard drive before the cloning would be made possible. Once the host computer is has the capacity to power an external device it nature either as available disk space to create backup required prior to cloning or usually a system checks to ascertain that the alternate computer has the capacity to receive every data. Alternately, the receptacle computer may have required changes of parts prior to cloning. A mentionable example includes hard disk drives to contain the new programs, also required to have enough space to create backup once the computer cloning is achieved. The next requirements check for cloning is ascertaining the appropriate cable connection that would be bridging the space gaps for data to be transferred. Usually an effective cable has the capacity to be recognized by both devices as measure prior to any cloning communications. Also, an efficient cable should have the most capacity to transmit data at quantities that does not cause malfunctions discussable. For example, the cables capacity may actually be able to transfer data only not capable of transferring every data size requiring transfer. Once the process is began with such a cable, some computers would transfer only what is achievable to the negligence of what is unachievable. However also, cable incapacity to transfer every data would would last several durations during the process o cloning. Simply said, the cables require compatibility to both computers, second an enormous capacity to outperform prevents any malfunction on the cable connections part during the cloning process.

  1. Alternately, a computers operating system is replaceable simply by acquiring the restoration programs at retail markets. However, the original computers restore operating systems program has to be acquired with details acquirable as computer type, year, models, and versions as guideline references in acquiring operating systems programs at retail. The reasons for such evaluation include acquiring a program that simply is adaptable to the malfunctioning computer. Alternately, a different operating systems program is acquirable on the retail market to replace the malfunctioning computers systems only with some conditions considered. First, the computer has sigficant parts that integrated with the prior operating system that may need alterations altogether to function with the newer but unique brand away from original brand specified. If choosing to acquire an alternate operating system from the original several additional alterations are required. First, the computer hard disk drive may need replacement either since most operating systems would not override an existing version unless every existing remnant programs were erased completely. Also, keep in mind that the older disk drive had spaces available to store programs from the older operating system that may have a unique requirement of spaces to perform. Acquiring another alternate operating system at retail may be compatible with the computer only the computer has least available spaces in store for separately engineered system programs. Simply said, each device has a set of requirements to perform with the remain ones on the computer being repaired. Where changing once original part that was connected to several other would require acquiring additionally the same remnant compliment from retail to achieve compatibility standards.

The operating system acquired on the retail market is usually in the form of a disk CD that is simply inserted into the computers drive medium from which restoration instructions are generated to achieve user experiences. For example, inserting an operating system disk CD in the drive of the computer should request either repairing the prior existing version on computer or simply replacing the entire system features. Usually, each acquired disk has instructions on the systems reconfiguration as would be termed. Alternative descriptions of the process are restorations, rebooting of installations of systems programs.

Important notes to be wearisome about when working with computers operating systems includes software and hardware compatibilities where a change may require alteration of the remaining, else a malfunction response would be likely. For example, the operating system is the command interface of the computer. Each operating system has functionalities where for example, the malfunctioning computer may have been designed for office productivity causing the manufacturer to install the compatible requisite program system for such an experience to be achievable. Especially on a computer that requires every functioning parts recognizable for communications to be achieved during user experiences, a change in one significant part that would achieve computer user expectation may not necessarily equate to every component parts usually functionality prior to replacement parts.

Consulting with a computer systems technician to achieve the experience would guarantee an experience of restoration functionalities were the computer user simple retrieves a device at functioning mode soon after repairs are completed. The significance of consulting with experts is several mentionable. First, professional hand tends to perform expectedly on devices. Second, experts are capable of the repairs without gimmicks experienced with alternate persons.
