    My son's Dell Inspiron 1501 is asking for a HDD password. I called Dell and they said I would have to send it in to replace the motherboard. Is this the only solution?

    Hi

    Iam a Dell Certifed System Engineer (DCSE)



    please let me know what kind of password is it

    because if its the Harddrive password

    you will get it from manufacture as you have to provide them a number located on hardrive

    if its a BIOS or a windows login password it can be fixed

To clarify the request, it is a harddrive password not a bios password or windows.

I get a message on my ACER Aspire Laptop7551 Series, which says Enter HDD User Password. What do I do?


Well, obviously someone has put a password lock on the hard drive and if it wasn't you and you don't know who it was or know the password your only option is going to be to replace the hard drive. There are places that can unlock a drive but you have to prove to them that is yours and they are expensive. Cheaper to just replace the HD

If you can't change the setting in the bios setup that means you have a bios supervisor password set. If you don't know the supervisor password you can reset the supervisor with Acer Bios Master Password from http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Acer_Bios.php for only $20

My laptop turned off and now its asking for a primary user hdd password witch i dont have how do i unlock it?


You have to unlock the hard drive from within BIOS if you don't want to see that screen again. However, if you don't know that password then the laptop is not going to usable by you. Normally this prevents access to a computer in case someone steals it, since the thief won't know the hdd password and can't unlock it to access any data.
