Laptop HDD is now locked

\015 Why am I now seeing a screen on my laptop that says the following: (how do I fix this) , the system Primary HDD, is protected by a password authenticationYou cannot access data on this hard drivewithout the correct password.please type in the hard-drive password and press enter.\015

Answers :

The hard drive password is setup from the BIOS configuration.
\015\012To remove the password you need to go into the BIOS configuration and you need to get the password from your brother.
\015\012There are no backdoor passwords, if you cannot get the password or guess the password then you need a new hard disk. If he has also set a BIOS password (you need this to get into the BIOS configuration), otherwise he owes you a new computer.
Okay.

\015\012Can you manually Restart the computer? When BIOS screen opens tap F5. Then enter safe mode. In safe mode unlock the computer. If that doesn't work tell me and I will instruct you on how to override the password in a more complicated way.
