This is a "security" feature, to allow _only_ the person who knows the password for the encrypted disk-drive to use (and boot from) the unit. There's no way to bypass this security.

Master Password for 2.5'' Hitachi laptop HDD


if locked while booting up, before even windows is loading: you've got a master password in BIOS to worry about.No way but to ask the manufacturer to remove it.
if you cannot access windows anymore after booting up:
boot up from a win cd, go through setup,
install a new copy of windows and try to find your personal files on the disk, back them up and reboot from a win cd again, this time format the whole harddisk and set up a clean, new installlation of windows.(warning: all beforehand data will permanently lost then)

good luck
