I Have a mini note 2133 that I turned on long enough to test out the wi-fi connection, not even long enough to register. But when I turned it on the second time, it kept asking for a password to the Hard Drive, which I had never set. So I have had 45minutes of use in the past month & can find an answer nowhere.
HELP if you know an answer. Dr.Kathi@verizon.net

Your problem somehow became marked as "solved", with your own post marked as the "accepted solution". Is this correct or some mistake?
It sounds as though an ATA security lock password somehow was set on the hard drive. If this is the case, it is not likely that you will get it unlocked. The ATA security lock feature is very secure. I recommend contacting HP technical support. If the drive is security locked, it will probably need replacement.
