Sounds like your disk has had bitlocker activated (vista or windows7)
if you did not create a recovery file at the time of creating your password and now cannot remember your password then there is not much you can do about the data already on the drive, you would need to remove the partition and reinstall your OS from scratch.
thats the purpose of data encryption, to ensure that no one can ever get your data.

3. And for the password...here you go....

Using Passwords
Using passwords helps prevent your computer from being used by others.
Once you set a password and enable it, a prompt appears on the screen each time you power on the computer. Enter your password at the prompt. You cannot use the computer unless you type the correct password.
Make sure that only authorized individuals access your computer.
Establishing different kinds of passwords requires that other possible users know the proper passwords in order to access your computer or your data.
As many as three passwords might be needed for your computer: the Supervisor password, the User Password, and the hard-disk drive (HDD) password. When the Supervisor password is set, only the Supervisor password entitles you full control of the computer.
• User password
If a user password is set and Password on boot is enabled, a password prompt appears when you turn on the computer. Unauthorized users cannot get access to configuration data.
You can also use the user password to enter the BIOS Setup Utility, but once the Supervisor password is set only a part of the options can be set.
• Supervisor password
With a Supervisor password, you can get full control of the computer. It also can be used as a power-on password, the same as the User password. Also, when you enter the BIOS Setup Utility with a Supervisor password, you are entitled to set all of the options.
• Hard disk (HDD) passwords
Once an HDD password is set, you need to enter it to get access to the hard disk. You can set the HDD password through either the User Only selection or the User + Master selection in the BIOS Setup Utility.
Note: If you set passwords through the BIOS Setup Utility and you put your computer into sleep mode by pressing Fn + F1, the following describes the behavior of the computer when you bring it out of sleep mode:
• You are prompted to type the Windows log-on password rather
than the User password to resume operation.
• If an HDD password is assigned to any hard disk drive, the hard
disk drive is unlocked automatically when you resume operation.
To set a User Password:
1. Turn on your computer. Press F2, while the initial screen is displayed.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen opens.
2. Select Security, using the cursor directional keys.
3. Select Set User Password, and press the Enter key. The Set User Password window opens.
4. Choose your user password, which can be from one to eight
alphanumeric characters in any combination. Type it in the Enter New Password field.
5. Press the Enter key once to move to the Confirm New Password field. Retype the password you just entered to verify it.
6. Commit your password to memory, and press the Enter key.
7. Press F10 to exit.
8. Select Yes in the Setup Confirmation window.
Changing or Removing the User Password
To change the password, do the following:
1. In the Enter Current Password field, type your current password.
2. In the Enter New Password field, type a new password; then retype it to verify.
To remove the password, do the following:
1. In the Enter Current Password field, type your current password.
2. Leave the Enter New Password field blank, and then press the Enter key twice.
Note: Make sure the Password on boot is set to Enabled if you need the password protection at power on.
To set a Supervisor Password:
Only a system administrator will be able to perform this procedure.
1. Turn on your computer. Press F2, while the initial screen is displayed.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen opens.
2. Select Security using the cursor directional keys.
3. Select Set Supervisor Password, and press the Enter key. The Set Supervisor Password window opens.
4. Choose your supervisor password; it can be from one to eight
alphanumeric characters in any combination. Type it in the Enter New Password field.
5. Press the Enter key to move to the Confirm New Password field.
Retype the password you just entered to verify it.
6. Commit your password to memory, and press the Enter key.
Attention: You might want to note your password and keep it in a
safe place. If you forget your supervisor password,
Lenovo can not reset your password. You must take your
computer to a Lenovo reseller or a Lenovo marketing
representative to solve this problem. Proof of purchase is
required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service.
7. Press F10 to exit.
8. Select Yes in the Setup Confirmation window.
The next time you open the BIOS Setup Utility program, you will be prompted to type your password to proceed.
Changing or Removing the Supervisor Password
To change the password, do the following:
1. In the Enter Current Password field, type the current supervisor
password.
2. In the Enter New Password field, type the new supervisor password; then retype it to verify.
To remove the password, do the following:
1. In the Enter Current Password field, type the current supervisor
password.
2. Leave the Enter New Password field blank, and then press the Enter key twice.
Hard Disk Passwords
Two types of the hard disk passwords help protect the information stored on the hard disk:
• Hard disk user password
• Hard disk master password, which requires a hard disk user password If User only is selected and a hard disk user password has been set, but no hard disk master password has been set, the user must enter the hard disk user password in order to gain access to files and applications on the hard disk.
If User + Master is selected you need to set a master password and a user password both as the Hard Disk Password. Either of the two passwords can be used to get access to the Hard disk. Any change or removal to the master password deletes the user password.
To set a hard disk password:
Print these instructions.
1. Turn on your computer. Press F2, while the initial screen is displayed.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen opens.
2. Select Security, using the cursor directional keys.
3. Select Built-in HDD1 Password Select, and press the Enter key. A window for selecting User Only or User + Master opens.
I will send the rest in the comment section..hope this helps in some way...the Fang.
