Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
On starting up my laptop the following error occurs "Enter primary master hdd user password". On attempting to type my original windows password in 3 times it gives me the error "hdd password error code 00849". Please help.
From what I understand, the hard drive can be set with a password so the drive can't be used in any other computer or even opened if stolen. It is different from windows or bios passwords, and no password unlocker can open it.
You need to call the manufactor of the pc, and have all the information about the computer handy so it can be proven you are the legal owner. They are the only ones that I know of that might be able to reset or disable the HD password.
