Unless you have special software, it is nearly impossible to unlock a hard drive. Some professional hardware repair stations have that ability, so look around. The alternative is to contact Toshiba directly and see if they will take you drive and unlock it for you.

    one more, if the hdd failing , encrypted or not , it will fail hard. and even lie to you as all bad hdd do, they are now corrupted and results are RAndom AND ALL BAD.

    IF THE hdd IS Silent, phy connected to sata port and power cable that is a dead drive motor in the drive.
    easy as falling off a log,, dead, DOA.
    if the drive fails to show up in BIOS the drive is dead.
    if the drive does show up in BIOS and smart tests fail that is a bad drive.
    learn to the fine tech art of putting your ear to the drive casing, hear it spin up and run. if not it is DOA.

I have a dell inspiron 15R that has a blue screen telling me that its harddisk security and then it says Sata port o wdc wd10jpvx-75jc3t0lock? help? How to fix this??

Hi,

The hard drive has been locked in the BIOS. If you cannot get into the bios with a password you can contact Dell for a code to unlock the BIOS and drive ... Here is a link that might help.

The harddisk security sata port 0 , how can I open this laptop harddisk because it is locked

If a hard disk is password protected, you must get the password. There is normally no way around it.

However, if the user password has been set, the administrator password on the hard disk can be used to delete it. I am not talking about Windows accounts here, I refer to passwords stored in the firmware of the hard disk.

MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I Disable the "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK" on my hitachi HTS54503289a300, 320 GB sata hard Drive? originally WAS INTALLED IN MY ACER TRAVELMATE LAPTOP NANUFACTURED IN 2012 BUT THE LAP

Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers

After booting up my Acer laptop i got this error SATA Port 0 WDC WD 3200BPVT - 22JJ5Lock help please.

This is going to be very hard as once hard disks are locked they cannot be undone so if you have no passwords to get into the security of the HDD, its a new hard disk i'm afraid.

Acer Laptop, hard disk security locked?

It seems that drive lock for this drive is enabled from BIOS. Is BIOS also password protected? Drivelock can be removed from there.

Sata cable & pata cable have a any jumper setting

Hi,
The hard drive / optical drive have jumper settings, not the motherboard. PATA has jumper settings, but SATA do not require any. The diagram of the setting is drawn on the hard disk itself below the serial number etc. For SATA, look on the motherboard for the SATA ports. Each port will be named as like SATA 0, SATA 1 etc. If you want the hardd disk to boot first, plug it in SATA 0. and the next device in SATA 1. However, you can also set the first and other boot device from the BIOS itself, in case of SATA.

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.
