As far as I know it is not possible to remove a password from a hard disk. In some cases a manufacturer may be able to help, however, for security reasons I'm not sure they would.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Sounds like a problem with the hard drive alright. See if you can boot to a Linux Live CD such as Ubuntu and test if all the rest of your hardware is working correctly. If you can boot successfully to an Ubuntu Live CD then it would prove that the main components of the laptop are still working correctly.

If this is the case, contact the manufacturer of the laptop and see if it is covered by warranty. If not, go to your local PC store with the laptop and ask if they can do anything with the hard drive or provide a replacement.

My toshiba HDD (Model-MK3265GSX) Serial Nunmbet 40LDF2NIS KK 8 EC . A has failed. It is not readable from outside. In order to recover the data, I need another good Toshiba HDD with a serial number close...

If the drive has failed then the only option to recover data is to send it to a data recovery service but these are not cheap.

Installing another drive with a close batch/serail number will not allow you to copy from a dead drive.

I would be connecting to a regular desktop computer and trying some of the free data recovery software available such as hirens boot cd.

ANY drive within the max and type supported could be used in your laptop.

Thses are common problems with laptops and in most cases I recover data (when the drive is not too damaged) as i described above.

I then install a new and often larger drive and build the system from the recovery CD's available from the laptop manufacturer.

Then old transfer any old data I recovered back to a folder on the new drive so that customers have access to anything that was saved.

The only sure way of getting everything back from a damaged drive is to send it off but that is only of use to you if your data is mission critical.

I use the cheap USB to IDE/SATA adaptors often available from good computer shops.

Check your CMos setup and see if the hard drive is recognised there.
