Well I found an old Aspire 1710, someone just threw it away, and it seems fine, except when I boot it, it comes up with a screen asking for a HDD password. Looked in the BIOS, Phoenix, and the HDD has been password protected. Anyone know how to bypass this? Or can I just replace the HDD with a larger, 250 Seagate? I had read somewhere that if you replace a locked HDD, the new one may become locked as well, and I don't want that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
