It sounds to me that someone has passworded the hard drive. If you do not know the password, there is no way to access the hard drive. The two options in this case are get the password from whoever put it on or uy a new harddrive. People usually password their harddrive in case it is stolen or lost, then nobody can read thei data or use their computer.

Truthfully the only solution I have seen for this is to contact the manufacturer. They will need to verify ownership to proceed. You can attempt to short the pins on the motherboard, but that is not as easy as it sounds and will require some research and disassembly of your machine, which i dont advise.

This is a password setting that's been applied to this hard drive. It cannot be bypased as far as I have known. Maybe a hacker could get around it but it was designed not to allow this to happen. If you don't have the password you'll have to reformat the drive reinstall the operating system.

Testimonial: "THANKS FOR THE INFO"
I think you should try to remove your motherboard battery. After removing the battery you will be able to access your computer. Please try this.
