Answers :

If the hard drive has a locked password on it, you cannot remove it unless you have the password. you might try using some SMART disk utilities, but in my experience, it has no worked. Some hard drives have a list of reset passwords, but I have never had success in getting these to work.

try downloading Hiren's boot cd. (gogle search it) it has many utilities for hard drives on it. iyt may have something to help.

alternatively, buy a broken identical model on ebay and swap the PC board. make sure to have the same hardware revision level and model.
Hi,
\015\012
\015\012The only thing I can come up with is to clear the bios by shorting the mainboard at the "Bios Clear" point.

\015\012Other than that have a loo at this website: http://rahulhackingarticles.wetpaint.com/page/Clear+BIOS+Password,+All+tricks+!
