|Tell us the make and model of your brand name system, or if you have a generic desktop system, the make and model of the mboard. |
The specific model of a brand name system is shown on a label on the outside of the case somewhere, or it can often be determined by going to the brand name's web site and loading a program they have available.
For Dell computers, they have a Service Tag number - the specific model can be determined by using that on their site, or can often be determined there automatically by you downloading some software. The Service Tag number should be on a label on the outside of the case, probably on the bottom on a laptop, on the back on a desktop, and is often also shown in the bios Setup.
The model, sometimes the make, of a mboard in a generic desktop system is usually printed on the mboard's surface in obvious larger characters, often between the slots.
The model is often also displayed on a logo (graphical) screen early in the boot, but it's often not as specific as the specific model number.
I find nothing useful when I search using:
HDD Password error 00430
Password error 00430
If this is a laptop....
- do you have the problem that you don't know the hard drive access password ?
If so, why don't you know it ? Do you have a legitimate reason ?
- is the hard drive one that was previously in another laptop model ?
If so, if you DO know the hard drive access password that was used on the other laptop, it won't work for the present laptop, unless the laptop is the same model, or one of a small group of models made by the same maker at about the same time.
The password must be removed on the computer it was installed on, or on one of a small group of models made by the same maker at about the same time.
