How to reset a forgotten high level password to SSDSA2M120G2GC ?

Hello and help. I can not reset the forgotten password to SSD (password HIGH level). Information on the disk is not needed.

- Notebook Acer Extensa 5220,

- SSD (120Gb) - Intel SSDSA2M120G2GS, ISN: BTPO103400P3120QGN

After 3 incorrect entries, the error code is 05243.

I tried to find a master password on bios-pw.org, it does not work.

What can I do?

A master password on some website would really be silly, would it not?

I agree. Therefore, I appeal here for help. Can I find out the master password for this model and what is needed for this?

Same thing here. We do not have master passwords.

Do not there are representatives of the support service from Intel?. If I understand correctly, then the manufacturer of the SSD initially establishes a master password for business needs. Including This can be used to remove the user's password. That's what I'm trying to do.

Can there be software for cleaning or reflashing firmware?

Hello Visk,

Thanks for posting. We understand that you're looking for a master password for an Intel® SSD X25-M Series.

As mentioned by Al_Hill in one of his posts, we don't have a master password for SSDs. This is configured by users on the system BIOS to protect their data, offering a master password would represent a security breach.

We offer http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/solid-state-drives/000017245.html tools for firmware update, but they can't be used for resetting or cleaning the firmware. It is also important to point that updating the firmware would not remove an ATA password,

At this point, we recommend to https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/oems.html contact your system OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) for further assistance.

Best regards,
