it starts to boot then the harddisk security pops up and requires me to enter a password.the code is primary master wdc wd1600bevt-22zctlock.I never set one up before.
Thank you for your response.So, the password XXXXX comes up only a few seconds after you turn the computer on and before windows starts loading?

Before we start, try entering the password XXXXX you set in the bios, but make sure that the CAPS lock key is on. All the letters must be in uppercase. Enter your password XXXXX all uppercase and press enter. The instructions to reset the password XXXXX lengthy, so I am going to ask that you follow this link and do the steps there. http://macles.blogspot.com/2008/08/acer-aspire-one-bios-recovery.html After performing the steps outlined in the above website, your bios will have no password.
