Recentely I bought a dell laptop from ebay, the laptop has a hard drive that is asking for a password right in the beginning after it boots up (not when the os boots up). I think the password is being stored on the software part of the hard drive and not on one of the sectors witch seems to make it harder to figure out how to get rid of the protection. The hard drive is an IBM Travelstar Model DJSA-220. I cant get a hold of the seller and I am stuck with a computer that I cant do anything on. Let me know if you guys have any good ideas. Thanks in advance.
