    Thanks for the suggestion, it somehow worked(and I'm very excited) because now is asking me for a "Hard-Disk #**Z73GT1I0T-595B, the primary HDD, is protected by a password.. Please enter the Hard drive password" I tried the same number you provided when it asked me for that and it didn't work, so I don't know what to do next...

    Thanks in advance for your advise.

    Since the admin password was cracked, one should be able to remove or re-set the rest of the BIOS options. Browse around and play the different security settings.
    Otherwise just grab a fresh copy of Windows 7 and loader by Daz and reinstall the OS.;)

    Hard drive Passwords are hard coded on a chip on the hard drive so if you dont know the PW its virtually impossible I have had a few HD with passwords and used a service called HDunlock google it,was cost effective for me they charge on how big the drive is,but you will lose the all the data and will need to slot the drive onto a spare sata or IDE port on your system for direct access. hope that helps

    if you just boot into the BIOS usually you can clear the hard drive password just choose remove or reset the password and on each line where it asks for a new password leave each field blank hitting enter on each line and reboot

    Will not work like I said its stored on the Hard drive`s EEPROM even if you took the drive out of the PC you will not be able to access the data.Your advice on just clearing the Password in BIOS is wrong because you need to input the old password first to allow you to do this.
    So to give him the right info you have these options 1.find the Password. 2.Change the Hard drives circuit board for another one with the same date,rev,of manufacture,3.Use a Online HD recovery service and 4. Replace the Hard Drive

    Hmm I have not been to Dogberts page for a good while so now he has compiled a hack for HDD as well, it was only the Master pass for the BIOS when I last visited his site, that guy is one clever dude. Sorry Computers plus I stand corrected ;)

    And using the link above then one of these should unlock his HD for his M1330
