Right..is there a password hint that you can research? should be a question mark at the right side of that panel for the password.

To disactive the password of harddisk


LOL, you're out of luck. If you're smart enough to set the hard disk password, you should be smart enough to remember it. 99% of the computers that have a password lock on the hard drive are stolen computers. The original owner put the lock on to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have set the password remotely once the computer is stolen.

The computer is useless to you. The only way the password can be broken is if the original owner who put it on, takes it off? Even if you take the hard drive out of the computer, it can never be used again as long as it has a password lock on it.
