Sorry, but no help here

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to Hard disk Password breaki ...

Sorry, but on this forum we do not provide password help of any kind for any reason.

You will have to call the manufacturer (Acer) or the company you purchased the system from.

I would also like to point out that your friend really isn't a friend after all, are they?

First thing you need to do

by jdclyde In reply to Hard disk Password breaki ...

is go slap your "friend".

Then have your "friend" prove to the manufacturers that you and he are not scumbag thiefs, and they will help you out.

If you are a scumbag thief, then you will rot in ****.

Good luck with that and have a great day.

Harddrive Password

Password to the harddrive???

Isn't this set in BIOS? Do harddrives actually have low layer passwords that stores the password on the firmware of the drive??

Even laptops have jumpers to reset bios passwords..

Well you'll have to have some technical ability..

Better get upgraded education

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to Harddrive Password

In the 21st Century, yes there are hard drive passwords set at low layers where moving the drive to another computer still won't give you access.

Also, many laptops (and other computers as well) no longer have jumpers to reset bios passwords AND removing the CMOS battery no longer "drains" or "erases" the storage of that password.

Time to bring your skills up to date.

I am sure techman will be along soon with a detail plan on how to get past the security, or electrocute yourself, which ever happens first....

LED_IT - you have the wrong end of the stick fact -

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Harddrive Password

THAT particular stick is well past its 'sell-by' date.

Laptop passwords are no longer stored anywhere near the BIOS. They are either on an EEPROM or a custom chip, neither of which requires power since they are both solid-state.

Many mobos are now jumper-less, since the adjusters are now soft.

Best not to slag the Poster's technical ability when you are so lacking yourself.

Well I checked the ACER manuals online and their are switches on the MB to disable passwords..

But hey I'm lacking in experience so what do I know..

Strange! - I'm typing this on an Acer Aspire 1363WLMi . . .

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Check

And I know for a fact, that the BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM - so use of any jumpers would be an utter waste of time.

Did you perhaps, have difficulty breathing, after blowing all that dust off those online manuals???
