Try pushing esc as much as needed to bypass it. Than make a new user account and switch the settings.

ID FROZEN ON MY ACER ASPIRE V5-471. I NEVER PUT A HDD PASSWORD IN IT WHEN I BOUGHT THE LAPTOP 4 YEARS AGO.HOW CAN I FIX THAT.


Does it makes any kind of sound when you boot? Is the HDD frozen or is it password protected? If it makes a clicking sound when you boot the computer then the HDD pointer inside the HDD is stuck.
If you can get to the BIOS, you can delete any password from the BIOS. If the HDD does not shows up in the BIOS, then your HDD is probably fry.

My laptop has. Crash while I was downloading a program now when I try to restart,it comes with error to reboot,inset system disk, i. reinsert the disk that there,but same thing comes up. Also took disk...


The HDD password is a BIOS function. A password is set and passed to the HDD. Then the BIOS on power up sends the password to the HDD and unlocks it on each boot. It could be your HDD is dead and so when BIOS sends pwd to HDD there is no response.Try BIOS reset to defaults

Will not except my boot password


if it is not accepting your boot password, make sure your password is typed correctly hence no caps or caps num lock or no num lock etc.

If you have tried all that and failed, reset the cmos by removing the battery on the motherboard and leaving it out for atleast a minute to be safe. Place it back in and start the computer up. Everything should be reset to manufactures default and password should be removed. Please do not try this if your not technically trained or certified in this field.

Master Password for 2.5'' Hitachi laptop HDD


if locked while booting up, before even windows is loading: you've got a master password in BIOS to worry about.No way but to ask the manufacturer to remove it.
if you cannot access windows anymore after booting up:
boot up from a win cd, go through setup,
install a new copy of windows and try to find your personal files on the disk, back them up and reboot from a win cd again, this time format the whole harddisk and set up a clean, new installlation of windows.(warning: all beforehand data will permanently lost then)

good luck
