|I have never set a password on my harddrive. When I turned on my Lenovo g770 laptop it had a blue rectangle in center that says "Harddisk Securitt" and on the next line it says "SATA Port 0 WDC WD7500BPVT-24HXZLock" When I hit enter which is pretty much the only option, I get a second screen that says "Please Input password for WDC WD7500BPVT-24HXZ". I have tried my user and admin passwords but neither work. I am the original owner of this laptop and have not setup any other passwords. |
it is possible that I am not remembering the passwords correctly (this is an older computer that I have not used in over a year). I was just trying to access to backup all our pictures from the last 3 years prior and then was going to format for the kids to use for homework.
Still, I don't think it is the admin or user password that it is asking me to input. It is asking for a password for the SATA hard drive? Is there a default password for these hard drives? or another way to get our pictures out of this laptop at this point?
I have been reading conversations about bios and such....but I am not technical...just a mom trying to get three years worth of family pictures out of the laptop (I guess I decided to backup all our pics into one central online place a little too late?
Any suggestions would be very appreciated. We bought this computer at Costco about four years ago online.
Thanks for reading
