Recently i have purchased one Momemtum 5400.6 500GB Laptop HDD which is HIGH SECURITY LOCKED.

The HDD Password screen appears before the BIOS DEL Button (For entering Setup) arises i.e., instant on BOOTING.

Before buying i have checked everything except "BOOT"ing as it was told that this is IMPORTED Refurbished drive.


Spildit SIR, PLEASE HELP. YOU ARE THE REAL GURU OF HDDS.

Option 1 - Ask the guy that sold you the laptop to provide you the password.

Option 2 - Replace the HDD.

It's not nice to gain access to the drive and to its content if this is/was a stolen laptop.

If this laptop was not stolen and sold to you by the legit owner then ask him to provide the password.
