  1. Hey I got this laptop from a company that closed and of course they had a

    password on the HDD is there a way to remove it or do I need a new HDD. I just

    want to format the HDD so I can use it I don't care for what's on it.

    You need to post these requests here:
    HP / Dell / etc. Laptop password help (April - June 2008)
    I suggest you read that thread in full too

    Actually there are many useful forums / guides / downloads / threads that you really should have a look at, just for info.
