You mean the Windows logon password? If you forgot it, you can create a Windows password reset disk to reset your lost or
forgotten Windows password, i have created one with the tool Windows Password Breaker and reset my administrator password successfully.
Hard drive password is stored on a drives firmware chip. The password is used to protect data on the hard drive and moving it to another computer won't allow you to see or access data on that hard drive. There are no backdoor passwords available that you can use.
To get your laptop operational again, you need to replace the old hard drive with a new hard drive and install Windows again.
Otherwise you will have to keep trying all the passwords you can think of. If you succeed in getting in I suggest you remove this password.
