You're out of luck. Not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you get a laptop where the person in possession of it does not know the hard drive password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner puts a lock on the Hard Drive to keep users from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have put the password lock on remotely as soon as it was stolen.

The hard drive can never be used again.

Generally, all you need to do is get on to Dell Support and get in a chat with one of their people and tell them that you are locked out by a BIOS password, and needed to get around it. After they verify that you are the owner of the laptop, they should give you a password that gets you through it.

SOURCE: acer aspire 3690 bios reset

Underneath the ram (remove ram) is a jumper marked J3
short this out for a couple of seconds.

This will reset bios right back.

Boot and go straight to bios (F2) and set your options as needed there.

Eg date, time, drives,and any other options the bios needs to be able to boot the machine. When you have done make sure you SAVE then exit which will re-boot.

If you didnt mess any bios settings you should be back in business



Is this information was useful please click

Bought used. hard drive has unknown password. How to bypass password on hard drive?


If it is a SSD hard drive the only living soul in the universe who can help you is the one who sold it to you (or maybe the NSA). There is no way to reset, delete or bypass an SSD password.
Else, be more specific.

OK, why in the world would you set a password on the hard drive especially if you can't remember it? I'm not calling you a thief but 99% of the time when you encounter a computer with a hard drive lock on it and the person in possession of the computer don't know the password, the computer is stolen. I've had the police come to my shop many times to pick them up.

What kind of SSD uses the Samsung X360 notebook.


This is the specification of the SS hard disk this laptop uses.

The X360 also features the option of an ultra-fast and reliable 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD)*, which significantly enhances performance compared to a typical hard disk drive (HDD), with a boot time that is 25-50 percent faster and data access times that are 300 percent faster (53 MB/s) for reading and 150 percent faster (28 MB/s) for writing.

I AM trying to remove a hard drive password from the samsun r370 can youhelp


If the Admin password does not allow you access to the drive then you MUST have the hdd password...........Even if you put the drive in another pc you won't have access to it (a hdd password is encoded on the disk). You can't even format it and use it again.The HD password is set together with the BIOS password, completely locking in all the hardware. To the best of my knowledge, even your hard disk manufacturer isn't able to unlock a password

I am interested in this drive Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB. I want to know how to install this drive into my desk top computer with a 3.0 slot for the drive as it is only 2.5 inches wide.


To install a Hard Disk Drive(HDD) into your desktop, take off the side panel of your case. Locate the SATA slots on it, they should be above the available Optical drive slots.

Put it in place, depending on your case you should either have a latch which locks it in place or you will have screws. After you've done, make sure that if you have another HDD in your PC, and you will not use this HDD for System files(C:\ drive), you will have to set the new one to Slave configuration. To do this you need to take out that jumper inside of the HDD(you can use some tweezers) and, according to what's printed on your HDD, move it up or down.

When you've done that, insert the SATA power supply cables from your Power Supply(PSU). After that use the SATA interface cables which came with your HDD and plug them into your Motherboard's SATA adapters. Locations of these vary depending on the motherboard so it's always best to refer to your Motherboard's manual to check locations.

After that start your PC and open up your BIOS/CMOS. Usually you press a key such as F2/F5/Esc on bootup. Configure your Motherboard to check for new drivers. After that save and exit and it will restart your PC. You should have installed your new HDD!

I got a laptop as a gift and it was working fine but now it is asking me for a HDD/SSD user password and i dont have a password for it is there anyway iam able to bypass it please help me


An HDD/SSD password is located on the HDD itself and cannot be accessed to change it like Operating system passwords can be.

It is at sector level and only manufacturer can advise.May be easier (and cheaper) to replace the HDD.

My drive became locked with a password or I forgot my hard drive password. How do I gain access to my data?

Answers from Hitachi : Unfortunately, there is no way to bypass the security password feature of Hitachi hard disk drives. If the password is not known or has been misplaced, Hitachi will not be able to assist in gaining access to the data on the drive.

Hi I can not unluck my maxtor external hard driver, which requires password. May you please help?


According to Lenovo and many other manufacturers’ website, if you forget your hard drive or hard disk password, there is no possible way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Basically the hard drive is unusable. Scary right? However, this is often not true.
Most people are not aware that most hard disk drives have the ability to set a hardware password, just like the Bios password for motherboards, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. Usually these features can only be found in laptops, this is when you set a password on your notebook, the hard drive together with the motherboard becomes locked.
Most experts would say if you forget the original HDD or Bios password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. Unlike the Bios password where there is a master key or with the removal of the bios battery, the password is erased from the flash memory thus the settings is restored to factory settings without the password, however, this does not applies to hard disk.
unlock_recover_remove_tool_hdd_hard_disk_drive_password_software.jpgHDD Unlock Wizard is a user-friendly application which allows you to easily remove HDD password. IDE and SATA hard disk drives are supported. Both User and Master password can be removed. Please note that while unlocking, Remember HDD Unlock Wizard will erase and re-certify the drive, meaning to say all data in the disk is lost and not recoverable. HDD Unlock Wizard incorporates proprietary unlocking algorithms which allow removing an unknown HDD password and making hard drive usable again.
Download Hdd Unlock Wizard from here
http://www.hddunlock.com/download/
It may not be possible to recover the hard drive password or to unlock it; however, it is possible to remove the password together with the data, thus making your hard disk accessible and usable again.
Or Try Hiren's boot cd in this there is a operating system which boot from direct your cd/dvd rom. try it if it may open your locked external disk. And if your hard disk open in it just copy the data from the drive to any other drives and after copying your data format it. Then you see there is no password dialog box open in your normal windows log in.And for future if you use any software for password protection try to memorize the password in your mind or write it somewhere.
