    Got a problem here, I'm trying to do some data recovery on an HP Laptop, some how the user's 7 year old screwed around with the laptop and setup a Hard Drive password. Does anyone know how to reset it?

    I've tried the following so far:

    Can't get into BIOS either some how there's no option for me to log in, the HD password seems to prompt first before anything.

    External Enclosure's won't read it. Installing it as a secondary drive, it doesn't get detected either..

    The only thing I can think of would be to plug in via the PCB board and try a reset there, or better yet a nice little tool that reset's it back to default.
