My friend bought a laptop (Acer Aspire 4520) when you turn it on you get a black scre en with a blue box that says Enter Password. I was able to find two bios passwords online that will take you to the...


That's the idea of HDD passwords. You can't access the data on it at all. Either by boot cd or physically removing the hard drive and connecting it to another pc, you still won't be able to access the drive. Two options, replace the hard drive and reload a clean o/s. Or, there is a service available that might remove the password and retain the data. There are also services that will remove the password and wipe the data, as a security measure. But at the cost of either of these services, makes better sense to replace the drive and reload the o/s. You can goole HDD Unlock and find the software easily. You would need to connect the drive to another working pc. Download and run the software on that password protected drive. It will tell you if it is unlockable. To bad it's not a Dell, I may be able to provide you with a p/w to unlock it.

I got a new SATA 500gb HDD but the motherboard wont detect it.


Access to your Bios Setup & configure the Bios settings.

Features Setup Page : This page sets up some parameters for peripheral devices connected to the system.

CMOS SETUP UTILITY - Copyright (C) 1985-2003, American Megatrends, Inc.
Features Setup
OnBoard Floppy Controller : Enabled
Serial Port1 Address 3F8/IRQ4 : Enabled
OnBoard IR Port : Disabled
Parallel Port Address : 378
Parrllel Port Mode : ECP
ECP Mode DMA Chnnel : DMA3
Parallel Port IRQ : IRQ7
OnBoard PCI IDE Controller : Both
OnBoard SATA-IDE
: Enabled *(Make sure This is enabled)
Audio Device : Enabled
Modem Device : Auto
Ethernet Device : Enabled

If you have got a SATA III HDD, ie if it is a Western Digital Sata III you need to configure the jumpers to work with your older Sata interface port.(Only Sata 1 & 2 ports on your Mainboard Socket 478). As for Seagate Sata III HDD, the configuration is automatic.

If your 500GD HDD is not detected, try updating the BIOS!
A word of caution "Updating the Bios is not for the Novice" Do it at your own risk. Failure in updating the Bios may render your Mainboard useless.

Hope it helps.

It sounds like you may need to go into the BIOS and change or disable the password. Alternatively, clear the CMOS.

Most modern laptop HDD or BIOS passwords are not resettable and don't come with default passwords to unlock them if the password is forgotten.

You will need to contact Acer and find out what kind of warranty coverage your machine has. It's likely that you will have to pay for the services they provide or pay for a new hard drive yourself and re-install Windows.

Asking for password sata port pass


This is a "security" feature, to protect the files on the disk-drive from unauthorized access.

The computer supports "full-disk" encryption of each disk-drive inside your computer.

So, what password did you set when you first initialized this disk-drive?

If you don't know it, there's nothing you can do -- all the files on the disk-drive are _NOT_ accessible to you.
