I am being asked for my "Built-In HDD1 User Passward" for my TOSHIBA Satellite A135-S4527. Please tell me what it is, or how I can bypass it. I can reload my operating system, that is not a...


Toshiba Notebook PC's in the A105 series, and A135 series, suffered a lot of issues with asking for a HarDDrive password.

[ BIOS
Basic Input/Output System.
A small program contained in the BIOS chipset.

{Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A Processor is an I.C.
Ram Memory uses I.C.'s on the sides. They are DRAM chips.
Just two examples of I.C.'s used in a personal computer }

When you power on your computer the first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
{Simple explanation}

WinXP, and Win 7 are two examples of an O/S.

BIOS gave the harddrive in your laptop the moniker of HDD1.
If there was another harddrive installed also, it would be HDD2.
(HDD 1, HDD 2 ]

Reloading the O/S may, or May Not stop the request for the HDD1 password.
Most of the time? No.

Removing the CMOS battery (RTC Battery) will Not fix this issue.
{Real Time Clock}

It's a glitch in the BIOS program.
Toshiba is aware,

One solution (Besides Toshiba Support),

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/02/10/remove-clear-toshiba-laptop-bios/

{ NOTE*
When you go to perform a BIOS update, make SURE the power will not go out.
If the power goes out during upgrading, you will wind up with an expensive doorstop, or an ornament for a table.

A battery backup device of some sort is recommended }

Toshiba laptop hdd1/ssd1 password i don't know


You can try calling Toshiba's laptop support line but they will require proof of ownership. If they can't get it removed then your only option is to get a new hard drive. Reason is because when a hard drive password is put on a hard drive its programmed into the circuitry in the hard drive so if you don't remember the password then you can't get past that screen.

Hdd1/ssd1 password


I have bought a used toshiba satellite L555D-S7006 with windows 7 home premium 64 bit with the amd processor, it was working great. Well the other day I turned it on and it said to enter the bios password, I never put a bios password into the computer. I did some research on this and took the motherboard over to a freinds and he removed the cmos battery, after i reinstalled the motherboard now its asking for a HDD1/SSD1 password. So does anybody have any ideas about how to fixx this problem

HDD1 pasword


This is a feature in newer laptops, to protect the files on a "stolen" laptop from being accessed by the thief.

If you have set a password, enter the password.

If you have not set a password, did one of your friends/family set a password?

If no password has been set, turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Reinsert the battery.
Restart the computer, and see if it still asks for the password.

Hdd1 password


Most Toshiba laptops you need an adapter that jumps several wires across the Parallel port which triggers the BIOS to reset. You can purchase those online at places like EBAY.

Can I reset the HDD1 user password on Toshiba satellite?


If the password was set on the hard disk from the laptop that it was install on, then you can reset or remove the hard drive password using the BIOS configuration, you need to enter the existing hard drive password to this.
There are no back door paswords available, if you ca't remove the password then the drive is useless. This protection is use to prevent unauthorized access to data stored on the hard drive.

To get the laptop operational again you need to replace the hard drive and install Windows again.

FixYa is a free service and advice is given freely by its members but for some services there is a charge.
