Take some screws off the backside (where you have all the wires) and take off the side of the pc. inside u will see screws holding the hd in place. remove them and slide out hd (probably screws on both sides of the hard drive so you have to take both side panels off)

How to remove hard disk password from PC?


That is two different things.

A BIOS Password makes you enter a password to boot the machine up. To get rid of this you need to google
make model remove bios password
This requires shorting two pins on the motherboard.

A Hard Disk Password is something different. The requires a password to access files on the hard drive, but not the operating system. To defeat that, you need to reformat and reinstall Windows.


remove bios password Google Search

My satellite M45 S355 keeps turning off right after it boots. No matter what I do, it immediately turns off. I want to restore it to factory settings, or at least delete all my files so I can get rid of...


If you are not concerned with getting the machine running and just want to get the files removed from the hard drive then I suggest removing the hard drive from the machine and plugging it into a caddy that can be used on another computer to delete the files.

Want to get rid of an old computer Should I take out hard drive


Hi,
Best thing to do is download the contents of the hard drive to a external hard drive or Memory stick. If the computer is more then 5 years old then the hard drive will be old type, and will not go into the newer PC.

Security adware virus Multiple virus programs (webroot/norton/etc) have been unable to completly remove this virus. I have a Dell Inspiron 520 with Vista 64-bit. Thanks


If MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool and Avast anti-virus boot scan do not rid your system of the virus, you may have to remove the hard drive from the infected computer and using an adapter, attach it to another computer such as a laptop or another desktop. The adapter attaches to the hard drive and then uses a usb for the interface. They can be bought at computer stores for around 20 bucks. Once you have attached the infected drive, double click on the "My Computer" icon and then right click on the infected drive icon. Scroll down until you see the selection for either "scan with MalwareBytes" or "Scan with Avast". ONce these scans are complete, replace the hard drive back into the original system. Another great scanner is Super AntiSpyware. All these are free downloads at www.filehippo.com

How can I completely wipe my wd passport hard drive and start over? there are files and weird backups that i just need to get rid of and totally start fresh but they are protected. help!


With the drive connected to your computer, Open up My Computer, located the drive you want to wipe, right click on it and select Format, you can do a quick format. This will remove all data from the drive so be sure you do not want any data that is on it. This will also remove the WD files that came on the drive as well. If you need these files just copy them to your local disk temporally format the drive and then move them back.

Disk clen up


first start by getting rid of all the mp3's that might be on your hard drive. Download www.ccleaner.com and run it- it will get rid of most of the temp files on your hard drive. Go into add remove programs and delete unneeded programs. Online support can help you do this too. Try www.plumchoice.com they can fix it over the internet!
What you probably need is a much bigger hard drive- they're cheap, but you might need help installing it, and setting it up. A local computer guru can do this easily.
