Having problems with your Acer Aspire 4520-5582 Notebook ?

Failing to boot up

\015 The computer is a Packard Bell easynote SB85, model Minos GP2W. Over 2 years old now.My father accidentaly did something in the bios version PB34A02.After initial booting it asks for Secondary Master HDD user Password before it will fully boot up, ie go any further.We have no idea what this is and it needs you to input the correct one before you can make a change to this. I set all values in the bios to F9 key default values ,but under the Security tab in the bios the primary hdd password says locked but above in the bios menu there is an input field to assign a HDD password. This has been entered into but needs the correct HDD password before a change can be made to it anyway. What I don't understand is why does the computer ask for a secondary HDD password when under the Main bios menu the internal HDD2 is tagged as None because the computer has only one internal HDD.\015

Answers :

Ok if the hdd has a password then someone set that and there is no way to crack a hdd password you need to basically get another hard drive at this point as the password is written into firmware on that drive so there is basically nothing anyone could do at that point.
