Hard disk unlocking

5 posts in this topic

I have a 120Gb Western digital hard which gave me a suprise which i never expected. I was using the computer as usual when i suddenly restarted without warning. It went throught the processes as usual then it wont go to windows. I thought it was a BIOS problem so i checked the hard disk is detected. Upon further analysis i found that the hard disk had locked itself and was asking me for a password. I didn't know that Hard disk had locking mechanisms and i didn't have the password anyways so i was locked by the system.

I tried different software to unlock it but it didn't budge. Is there a way to unock it?

Can you give more detail on how and where you were asked for a password?

Maybe you have to reinstall windows because a update was downloading or you shutdown and unplugged the wiring

Did you encrypt you hard drive with anything?

Well actually i gave it to a friend of mine who used hard drive utilities to at least format it e.g Active kill disk thats where he saw the password
