Specs: Windows Vista
So my computer locked up because i forgot my HDD password. I looked around online to see if i could get some backdoor code or some way of fixing it. all the many....MANY codes i tried none of them worked. So the next "easy" thing was to just take out the coin-cell battery for a while then put it back in,that didnt work.. so the only other thing i saw was about a jumper that you have to get to internally but i couldnt find anymore information about it so i figured hey take it apart and see if it says something about it...took me a while ,with something i didnt know anything about,by myself,but very slowly and tediously part by part its torn apart. so i think i need alot of help... :(
