I am trying to help those who have IBM latest model like T40, T50(the expensive ones) with password problem(excluding hard drive password), only the expensive ones worth repairing.

Hard drive password cannot be unlocked without external hardware. I believe so.

Sunny, I doubt you'll get many responses from us for two reasons:

1) We are trying to figure out how to fix it ourselves and are not willing to pay for it. I have two hard drives that need the password removed and I don't care either way if it gets done. I am not willing to pay anything over a dollar or two because I could just buy a new 4GB hard drive to replace it.

2) You aren't even on the same subject. At least offer to fix the problem that is the original subject of this thread.

Thanks though =)

I also have a problem with HDD password!.

The laptop HDD is an IBM Travelstar. When the laptop is switched on, it asks for the password & will not go any further. Tried it as a second drive (USB) but it does not show up in the directory structure. So U can NOT see it at all. (ps. The OS is WinXP). Any suggestion as how the password can be reset/ removed / erased / deleted. (ps. have already tried the ATAPWD with no success.

Thanks...

Locked hard drives can be easily unlocked; however, all data will be lost. I've done this when hacking my UltimateTV (to install a larger drive, then reuse the old "locked" drive in a PC) and used the same program to unlock a Travelstar I inadvertently locked in my Thinkpad 770ED. (I used a desktop PC and a 3.5-2.5" adapter.) The program you need is mhd3.exe.
