Make sure you are typing it like this:

UNLOCK6 12345 0

with the ZERO at the end (after a space). I kept trying to use it and thought it was giving me bogus passwords too, until I re-read the docs and found the SPACE and ZERO at the end, I tried it once more and it worked wonderfully!


guys if u have a new version of the tool please send to me
my notebook is dv6580ee so this version generated wrong password
the number i get after 3 attepts is 12830

It pays to READ the docs before jumping into something....

you'd be amazed at the amount of people who emailed me because they couldnt even click the download links in there rush to get the program........they overlook simple links,,then whine in an email,,then claim the link worked,,then whine more in emails,,then claim they got it somewhere else,,,go figure........all because they cant click a link

Let alone the ones who email asking how to .............. READ the instructions

Linked version is old one (v1.0 July 1997), there exists a newer one (v1.1 May 2003), which can generate passwords with scan codes, uppercase and lowercase (ie. uppercase it used to remove hdd passwords from some Acer laptops). Acer references both versions in their service manuals - old one for removing user/supervisor password - bios_pw.exe, and the new one for remowing hdd password as hdd_pw.exe (but on enclosed screenshots we may see that they really are unlock6 v1.0 and unlock6 v1.1).

So if anyone has this new unlock6 v1.1, please post it here or email me at: tzok (at) poczta.onet.pl

Thanks in advance!

Hey. Sorry to bump this thread so late in the future.
Just wondering whether anyone located a copy of unlock6 1.1? If so I would be very interested in getting a copy.

Cheers.

Ok. To elaborate a bit.. The reason I'm asking for 1.1 of unlock6 is because the previous (linked-to) version doesn't have the option to generate an upper case ASCII code, which I'm needing to unlock a HDD on an Acer laptop. I know it also goes by the executable name of hdd_pw.exe , but 'tis the same thing. Not sure if you were "LMAO"ing at my post or not, but I have a feeling my reason for request will be the same as some of the previous ones.

Cheerio and fingers crossed someone's got a copy o' unlock6 1.1!

Well... that's true that authorized service can remove passwords from non-stolen laptops, but:
- you have to have a proof of purchase (which you don't have when buying "second hand" laptop via i.e. eBay),
- you have to pay for this quite a lot of money (as I remember 100€, which in my country, is more than a minimal salary for a week of work), often more than 1/3 or even 1/2 of laptop's total worth,
- many used laptops on eBay are after-leased laptops from some companies, often imported by the trader from different countries, they event don't know that there's a BIOS password, and there's no way to find the previous owner or give laptop back (the trader would say that it was you who put the password, and he won't accept return),
- other problem is that you don't know that you have a HDD password protection in BIOS active until you try to put other disk to your laptop (an it will become locked) and then put it back to another computer, or until you won't try to put your's (locked) HDD into other laptop or PC,
- the true thief alway have this kind of programs and doesn't need to ask for it, there even exist almost official unauthorized services, which offer removing passwords from laptops and HDDs, without any proofs of purchase, and for lower prices.

As to "old"... both are called unlock6.exe, but have different release dates (1997 and 2003) so one is old and one is new, isn't it?

yeah remove the cmos battery, its like a disc, and also take out the regular battery

if that doesnt work in the first 10 minutes, keep the cmos battery out but put the regular battery in and turn the computer on then take the battery out while its booting ;)

Please stop suggesting the battery people. In that acer its soldered to the mainboard and shorting it doesnt work either. It's hard coded into an EEPROM (Electronicaly Erased Programable Read Only Memory) of sorts. They need the code to reset.

I also would like to know about other unlockers: specifically an HP Omnibook 4150, which is not covered by unlock6.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Well, unfortunately, clearcmos.exe can only be run if you can boot the system. This system does not store it's password in cmos, but in an eeprom, so the cmos battery trick will do nothing. JP9 is not present on this laptop (I don't recall ever having seen it on anything since an old PII, let alone a laptop).

I hope that someone can help me with an unlocker other than unlock6, since it doesn't work for my HP Omnibook 4150. Hash code is 08285.
