If you hook it back up in your machine, power down, and remove the CMOS battery on the board (looks like a watch battery) THIS WILL CLEAR THE PASSWORD in most cases. Once you put it back in after a few minutes, you may need to check the BIOS boot time and date, and other settings again to be sure nothing custom set has reverted to default settings.

How can i unlock my aspire hard drive password model ms2346 (key:69011346)


Replace the hdd and when OS is installed restore your backups. The hdd password is a security device that dissables the hdd information and encrypts the firmware - permanently in case it is stolen.

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.

"not working" SimpleDrive 1TB Turbo


Hi Mav, According to the specs at SimpleTech, the HDD is plug and play, so here is what I would try.
  • unplug the HDD
  • open the Device Manager
  • click on the + next to Hard Disks
  • select the drive
  • uninstall the driver
  • turn the computer off
  • reboot
  • turn it off again
  • plug in the HDD
  • reboot
Window should reinstall the HDD. If that does not work, I would then download CCleaner from Piriform, link is listed below. Once you have it installed, use the Registry Cleaner after uninstalling the HHD driver. Select "clean all" when prompted. Make sure that when CCleaner asks if you want to backup the Registry to select Yes, just in case something does go wrong you can restore the Registry to as it was before. I have used this program on many different systems and never had a problem. After cleaning, shut down and plug the HDD back in and reboot. By the way, CCleaner has some other great utilities that help keep your computer clean.
  • If this helps resolve your issue, would you please rate the solution. If this does not help, please leave a comment giving me more information on the problem and I will try to help you further.

You can't, the password has appeared because the data board of the hdd has failed. You will have to replace the hdd and reinstall Windows.

Hi IMy seagate barracuda 500gb internal hhd has sector 0 bad.No way with many program to resolve it.I can' format,always say me that there is a bad sector.I used seagate tools,hhd disk repair and othen...


Since the HDD has rejected easy repair by the most appropriate tools, I recommend you recover the data and replace the drive. I've been through this many times for clients.

You did all the right things.

My dell inspiron 1501 is asking for a hhd password and i dont no it please could you help me get my laptop bk up and running.


This is a feature to protect your computer, should a thief have stolen it.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC-power.
Remove the battery.

Re-insert the battery.
Turn the computer on.
Does it still ask for a password?

If so, find your original sales-receipt, and telephone Dell, and ask them to assist you, as the "registered-owner" of the computer.

DriveLock HDD Bay Password


hello,

Will your NX6110 allow you to get into the Bios before the drive lock password coes up? If it doesnt and you dont know the password, you have two options. One being to send the laptop off somewhere to get the password an pay thru the nose. The other is just to buy another hard drive and re-load your system. Those passwords are build into the hard drives and there is really no way to get the password easily. You could of course pay for a machine that will hopefully get your password, but why pay all that money just to use it once, or twice. It comes down to the facts of how importand is the data on your hard drive?
