Hello to one and all. I have an issue that I am in need of help with. A few months ago I posted a plea for help with a Dell Inspirion 8100 laptop that I have. A so called former friend locked up the laptop with administrator password and disabled the ability to boot the laptop via boot disk, CD USB, or anything else etc. I sent a request of help to a gentleman by the call of Rustam and a few weeks ago he provided a master password to clear the dell grey screen asking for the password. I was very grateful for the gesture of help. I managed to bypass the screen only to get another gray screen telling me that the hard drive has been encrypted with another password. I have tried to send an S.O.S to Rustam but he has not answered for one reason or another. My question is as follow does anyone know of a way without having to shell out any money be able to unlock the hard drive so I can retrieve the data that I need as I don't have a backup of it. Any ideas on how or where to look for futher info would be really appreciated.
