How to remove HDD user password in Acer laptops



This article provides you with details about removing HDD/BIOS user password. If you key in the wrong HDD password three times, an error code is generated like the one in the picture below.


To reset the HDD user password, perform the following steps:
  1. On a different machine, run the HDD_PW.EXE file along with the error code generated. For example:
    hdd_pw 15494 0
  2. Select an option to generate upper case or lower case ASCII code for unlocking the HDD.
  3. Two strings are generated as output. Select and note down either one of the strings.

     4. Reboot the machine with the locked HDD and then use either one of the strings as the HDD user
         password.

If the error code given > 16500, your bios might be faulty.

To run this tool esp on newer system, and more especially in x64 bit environment, you might need DOSBOX
