SOURCE: Forgotten HDD password on Dell Vostro 1510

If it truly is the HDD password, Dell will be of no help to you, as they have no control over the HDD Password; the password is stored in a hidden sector on the HDD itself.

The only people that could help you with that is the manufacturer of the HDD, and odds are they won't help you. It would involve sending the drive back to the manufacturer, and paying them a heft fee to unlock it. It would be returned to you, but would be blank, as they have no way of knowing that the data on it truly belongs to you.

Today happens to be your lucky day however, as I stumbled upon what seems to be a very useful piece of software. There are many restrictions with it's use, so make sure you can manage this. It would involve you connecting your laptop drive into a desktop system in order to perform the task of unlocking, only works with certain drives, and has been known to not work on some Dell HDDs, amongst many other things. Link is below..

There is a reason people put passwords on the HDD, and that is for total security... Good Luck my man, good luck!

SOURCE: Dell Studio 1537 to Panasonic Viera via HDMI.

Are the screen and computer sharing the same power supply, on a 4-gang multiplug or similar?
What else is plugged in to the same supply?
Have you got another HDMI cable to try this with?
How is the audio connected - can that be changed to test it?
Have you another laptop or PC that you can connect to see if this is the TV or the laptop causing the issues?

Hi
have you tried going into the cmos settings to try and disable the password,
sometimes you can take out the cmos battery out to clear the password.

You may have to replace the hard drive, but the password may still be in the bios.


You can also google the problem and see if any one else was able to resolve the issue.


cheers
