    Well I have never heard of an HDD that has locked. As it has came out of some other persons computer it could be his password off of his bios. Which you would need to know. That is the only thing I can think of. It may be his bios password on there as I ahve never heard of a Hrad Drive Lock.

    PS Sorry To Hear About Your Uncle
