When i turn my d257 acer aspire one on it goes to blue screen asking for a password, or it either goes to a screen that says no boot disk


No Boot disk found - usually indicates the HDD is not located.
so you need to validate the HDD is inserted properly, and locked into the HDD slot. securely,
Blue Screen asking for password, could mean several things,
basically you need with both errors, take to a good Repair Tech and have this looked into... PASSWORD can be either for BIOs or HDD,
or the system went into LOCKED MODE and password is needed to UNLOCK it.

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.

Hdd password ,how 2 retervie


There are no backdoor passwords available. The password cannot be removed from the hard disk unless you know the original password to get into the hard disk and you can then remove the password.
Hard drive password is set to protect data stored on the hard drive from unauthorized access. Removing the hard drive and inserting it into another computer still will not allow access without the password.
If you cannot remember the password, your only options is to replace the hard drive with a new one and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs etc. to get a fully functioning computer again.

How to get password from hdd password error code acer aspire 4315


Is the error message coming before bios starts to load XP from harddisk, or after?

If it is coming after XP starts then it may be driver issue.

If it is coming before XP, then it may be a question of incorrect bios for the hardware in your laptop.
