    There is no way to remove the hard disk password without knowing the password used to set it.

    There are no backdoor password available, setting the password protects the hard disk from unauthorized access.

The difficulty of unlocking a HDD password will depend on how old and what model the computer is. You might want to try to crack it before trying other methods. Removing the HD will not fix the problem either. Your best bet is to contact a company that can do it for you. Here is a link to one such company with more information as well:

Unlock hdd/ssd password on toshiba satellite


Step 1Turn on your laptop. Press the "F2" key when the first loading screen appears. This will load the BIOS. You'll only have a second or two to press this key before Windows begins to boot. If you're not fast enough and the Windows screen comes up, simply restart and try again.
Step 2Use the right-arrow key to highlight the "Security" tab. This is the third tab from the right.
Step 3Press the down-arrow to enter the Security Settings menu. Scroll down to "User Password," listed beneath the "HDD/SSD Password Select." This will open a pop-up window with three text fields.
Step 4Type your current password into the "Current Password" field. Press "Enter." Type your new password into the "New Password" field and press "Enter." Type the same password again into the "Confirm New Password" field and press "Enter." The "Password" window will close.
Step 5Press the "F10" key to save your new settings and exit the BIOS. Your laptop will now boot normally.
TipHDD password can be changed as many times as necessary. However, once you enable password protection, you can never delete it.

Hdd password


My first thought is that someone else used this laptop and set this without you knowing, accidentally (like a child) or on purpose as a joke.
My second thought is you are the victim of a trojan.
To my knowledge, the only way to get to the hard drive is by knowing the password.
