There should be an image of way your notebook came out of the box on the hard drive. Even though you have a password protected you should still be able to do a restore. When you restart the notebook hold down either the F8 key or F10 key and see if it runs the restore wizard for your notebook.

If you have a Windows password reset disk, you can easily reset forgotten Windows password with it. If not, you can follow the steps to create one. You just need an available computer which can link to the Internet.
The hard disk password is setup using the BIOS configuration, this password is stored on the hard disk and there are no backdoor passwords you can use except the password you created and if you know this password then you can remove it permanently using the BIOS configuration. Moving this hard drive into another laptop will not work either, it won't allow access to this hard disk.
Your only option is to purchase a new hard drive to replace the one with the password.
If you also created a BIOS password, you need this password to get into the BIOS configuration.
All these passwords are created by users to prevent unauthorized access into the laptop and hard disk.
