    My sisters boyfriend has a toshiba a105-s4034 laptop and they have a bulletin for it one day when booting it may ask for a bios password. When he to it to be fixed for free they flashed his bios and it automatically set an HDD password which can not be changed unless you have the old password which was never entered so anyway they told him there is nothing they could do he would have to buy a harddrive but he has alot of pictures and music and videos of him in Iraq blowing up bombs so he wants to get into it I have put a different hard drive in it and it booted fine so the password is on the harddrive is there anyway to bypass this my teacher said there may be a jumper on the motherboard not the bios jumper that can be jumped to bypass this on some machines if anybody know if this can be done or another solution please help thanks?

SOURCE: need to bypass primary master HDD user password

I would recommend that u take it to a technician but if u can be able to open it u need to remove the cmos jumber inorder to clear the cmos settings, also try to remove the system battery switch on the notebook and the switch it off after a few seconds, replace the battery and switch it on again. It should laod up with default settings which might make other devices not to work since the settings where cleared, so u need to reconfigure the Bio's settings again

Bypass HDD password

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.

There is a freeware called Killcmos. You can find it using google. But this is no guarantee and could possibly damage your bios.

Hope this helps.
