Yoga 310-11 IAP locked HDD

Hello.

My Yoga 310-11 IAP has locked eMMC HDD and requests password to be entered, although I have never set it up.

I cannot enter BIOS.

One Key Recovery gives same as the normal start-up, I get message:

 

Harddisk Security

Lock PCIE 6440DF

 

Did anybody have this issue, what was the cause and solution?

Thanks

Regards

Nino

Hello Kriti0298,

 

A harddrive password is stored in protected flash on the drive itself. Only the correct password will unlock the drive and permit normal operation. We'd love to learn more about what's going on and confirm if this is really the issue would it be possible for you to post a video or a screenshot of the problem? We want to help you locate the answers you need.

Re: Yoga 310-11 IAP locked HDD

I dug around until I ran out of time, the other day. There appear to be some viruses in the wild that can set hard drive and UFEI BIOS passwords. There are also a few less-scary possibilities I can find.

 

Are you the original owner of the computer?

 

What happened just before this issue popped up?

 

What antivirus program is installed?

 

Can you boot from a flash drive? 

 

Press the power button and hold it for a full minute after the computer shuts off to clear the CMOS. It's probably futile, but you never know.  The only other solutions I can think of is replacing the hard drive and/or the motherboard.

Can you get into the BIOS?

 

Again, everything I read leads to either a virus or a failing hard drive, given the window you're seeing.
