remove write protection?

Hey I just got my computer yesterday and it was working fine all day but when i turned it on today It wouldn't let me move, edit, save or delete any files in my G:/ drive because it says it is write protected. Is there any way I can remove this write protection?

PS. I have tried a system restore and it didn't help

Can you a shot of the security permissions on the drive? Search for snip in the start menu.

Look in your motherboard manual for the option to load the BIOS, then look for write-protect. You can also try loading the factory defaults. Otherwise clear the CMOS as is suggested.
