how do I unlock the hard drive on my sons little acer aspire mini laptop. someone stole it and it took a week to get it back. When we did the guy had locked it and now my son cannot get on. What can I do?
Password protected, sure. Does that mean a BIOS password, did he change the windows password, did he encrypt the drive and put a volume password, did he password protect the MBR...I could think of a half dozen ways to "lock" a hard drive with a password.
Anyway, why are you resurrecting an old thread and not helping yourself?
