Question about Hard Computers & Internet
Some one kept hard disk password on my computer through BIOS
That is two different things.
A BIOS Password makes you enter a password to boot the machine up. To get rid of this you need to google
make model remove bios password
This requires shorting two pins on the motherboard.
A Hard Disk Password is something different. The requires a password to access files on the hard drive, but not the operating system. To defeat that, you need to reformat and reinstall Windows.
remove bios password Google Search

Remove the system board battery (about the size of a nickel) for 20 minutes or temporarily cross the cmos reset jumper on the system board (likely near the battery) for a few seconds. Make certain to put the jumper block back to it's original position.

How old is that hard disk?
Have you been receiving messages showing "SMART error" or something like that?
If yes, hard disk can be damaged.

On the motherboard, near the battery, you will see one of two things.
You may see three posts with a jumper on them. The jumper would be in the normal mode. You should see, next to one of the end pins writing that states CLR or CMR CMOS. Move the jumper to the that position and wait about 20 seconds. Then move the jumper back to the normal position and you should be good to go.
If there is no set of pins with a jumper, there may be two silver squares on the motherboard (very small) that will say something like CLR or RST. Jumping them with a screwdriver when the computer is disconnected from the power will do the same thing as the jumpers.
