How do i unlock my internal hdd on my toshiba pta71u-03q01m??? somehow the hdd got password protected...


Answers :

This is a geneic problem with all thoshiba satellite A100 series laptops. When you still have warranty with your machine, HP is liable to fix it for you, otherwise you have to do it yourself. When you are afraid of doing it yourself, just go with the instructions to a certified technician and let him fix it for you.

\015\012This is the solution if you have to fix it yourself:
\015\012
\015\012Remove the plastic piece above the keyboard.
\015\012Unscrew the 2 screws on the keyboard and lift it up gently. You don't need to disconnect it.
\015\012Now unscrew and remove the modem card in the center.
\015\012On the system board you will find 2 solder points c88. Short those 2 points out while you press the power button on, which will reset the bios password.

Press F1 while booting. Reset password to blank (nothing).
