Question about Computers & Internet
I just purchased this Toshiba satellite from a second party. I had it for awhile, and I go to turn it on a couple of days ago and I have been trying to figure out - "Why". The laptop starts, a blue window appear and it says: " Enter HDD / SDD password:". I have a Toshiba Satellite C655-S5132. Is there anyway that I could somehow install a special program to bypass the security password that is preventing itself in loading windows? Perhaps make a boot able USB that will let me format the hard drive and reload windows and drivers...??

You might be able to short out a jumper on the motherboard to clear the cmos memory
however make sure you are earthed via a wire to earth when removing the memory to avoid blowing memory up from static discharge. (not shown in the video)

Configuring the BIOS
After completing the drive installation, restart your computer. Your computer
may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not
automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.
1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system
setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually
done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 during
the startup process.
2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect
your new drive.
3. Save the settings and exit the setup program.
When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive.

Tips for a great answer:

When you move the laptop, the hard drive protection kicks in and the read/write heads go into park position freezing the laptop for a fracture of second. Apparenlty this causing the sound to statter.
You can disable the hard drive protection for a while and see if it fixes the problem.
Also, try reducing the movement detection sensetivity in the hard drive protection utility.
