    Same thing with a Dell b120 I've owned since it was new. The tag number is JZ7BD81. I don't know how it got to this state but when it boots up it says the hdd is password protected.

Hi,
Laptops have the option to password protect for security purposes. If the laptop should be lost-stolen. this is to ensure your personnal data, cannot be accessed by any tom dick and harry.
Post your laptop model number, and i,ll see if anything can be done.
i do not endorse password removal, as the majority of the time, a user cannot prove that the laptop actually belongs to them.
I,d also feel happier if you could also prove in any way, that you are the legal owner of the laptop in question.

Mike @ Compurepair.

    I forgot my hdd password and cant get into it is there a way to get passed it please help me


    There are companies that will open your hdd for you at a fee but there will be no data on it as it is all encrypted.
    Purchase a new hdd, install your OS and programmes on it and never forget your password again.

    Hdd password block on Gateway M 275 convertible tablet


    There is a battery inside that will dump the password. It may be soldered to the motherboard. A computer repair shop can do the job in about 10 minutes. While you're at it, just replace the battery. It only adds a couple dollars to the cost.

    Dell inspiron password removal hdd


    Usually, the hdd password is set the same as bios password. So we can recover the BIOS password directly from the laptop security chip. But if the hdd password is set not the same as bios password, how do you remove hdd password for Dell inspiron?

    Therefore, you have to use password cracker only. If you still remember hard disk password, or you remember bios password and bios password is the same as hard drive password, follows the below article to remove it.
