The recovery/removal of a hdd password is a professional job, extremely expensive. Just buy a new one and reinstall, your data is lost anyway.

    Lookup "Hirens" they have a utility that will reset any windows password. By the way you are asking are you sure you are not talking about the CMOS password? If so you need to reset the system settings. To do this check with your manufacture for CMOS reset.

My lenovo model name 4330 is asking for a HDD Password. and i dont know it


Yikes!!! I'm not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you encounter a laptop that has a lock on the hard drive and the person in possession of the laptop does not know the password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner put the lock on to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. It could have been put on remotely by the original owner once they realized the laptop was missing.

You're up the creek without a paddle.

your hardrive is locked. you need to call the manufacturer of your pc and they will walk you through the master passwords. It does take time though.
