|Hi people, I have an interesting problem here. I have a Toshiba C655 laptop and several years ago I put a password for the HDD in order to nobody else could open my files even if them put the HDD in another computer.|
The issue is that now I like to delete this password (which I know and use everyday), enter the BIOS Setup, go to Security Tab, hit "Change or Delete HDD User Password", type the known password and press Enter, Bios recognizes my password, in the next field I try to leave it blank in order to delete the password protection but with no results when I press Enter, nothing at all.
HDD Master Password dont work also, since it is coming from factory and we mortals dont have access.
So this old disk is unusable in another computer, only in my laptop (which have now an SDD HD)
Is there a solution for this? I need to put this old HD in other laptop.
The HDD is this: Toshiba MK6475GSX - 640gb.
Another thing, other netbook Samsung n150+ of mine have the same problem, I put a pass for the HD but I cant even try to delete it since the netbook has stopped working with a MB failure, and trying the HD in another computer doesnt work...
What should I do?
Note: I cannot call Toshiba or Samsung service since my warranty already dead and I live in a foreign country.
