    Need more info. Locked in the BIOS? Locked via drive/file encryption program? Make, model of computer? Too many unknowns here to even start.

    Would like to help but need more specific info. The question is very generic.

    try 7891... oh wait thats my pin number... forget i said that...

    might be the combination for his safe that he needs.. if he locked the hdd in the safe then forgot the code to get in perhaps.. if so try dropping it from a good height right on the corner thats hooked to the door.. ive heard that can break alot of safes open...

    I think he means ATA-lock from the HDD SECURITY commands, a feature of modern HDDs. If he never locked it himself but now it is, that's a problem. From what I know, some malware or anti-theft systems do this.

    You can reset ATA security from the drive but you will loose all your data in the process if you don't know the password.
