    When you say HD password, do you mean that when you turn on the laptop it asks for a HD password with a long string of numbers, if so read on...

    There is somewhere in here a user called Rustam, he has the one and only code generator for HD passwords, I do believe however that his inbox is full and that he no longer answers his posts.

    We, me and Padtea33, ran a thread in here for a long time on this subject and all I can say is that there is only one way to get rid of the password and this involves paying a fee and getting it done online.

    So unless Rustam is around i am afraid that you are stumped, if you want to pay for the online service let me know.

    There is a way of blanking the drive mentioned in the thread here, using XP but it was untested fully and may not work, I cant remember where in the thread but happy hunting
