    Thanks for reading my post.

    I have here a Lenovo G580 Laptop. When powering on it asks for HDD Password. When I try to access the BIOS to remove/edit the password it asks me for a BIOS password.

    Now the real strange thing is that no password has ever been set for BIOS or the Hard Drive.... However... I've tried removing the battery and the CMOS battery to reset the password... and when I insert them and power back up it STILL asks for the passwords!?

    Any help or guidance would be appreciated. The laptop isn't old however it is just outside of the warranty.

    Thanks for reading and I hope someone can help me

    welcome to tsg.....you may want to read the rules page at techguy.org/rules.html, as we cannot assist with bypassing passwords.

    closing thread, thanks,
