Answers :

Are you sure it's JUST the hard drive?

Your certain you're not referring to a power-on bios password or Windows Password, right?
First check in bios that your harddisk is detected or not?

You can ente rin bios with following method:

When u powerup press F2 or "del" F1 key to enter in bios.
but if u have problem of bios password followbelow procedure

here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your\015\012bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also\015\012u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is\015\0121 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user passsword

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.
