    I have locked the HDD by mistake, it ask me password every minute I turn on my computer. the good news is: I know password, but the computer is for illiterate man, he shouldn't be able understand it if POST has password for HDD.



    I can get into BIOS setup,security, HDD security and then reseted to user default. nothing changed.

    I have also reset all BIOS settings to factory default, save changes and exit. it's stills asking me password to unlock hard disk drive.

    Is there any option that can unlock it from registry?
    any-help is appreciate

    I've never used a HDD password, but perhaps if you change the current password, but specify the new one as blank (just leave both the new and re-type new boxes blank), that might remove it.
