    If the harddisk itself is secured with a password (BIOS Type of password), then your only chance of recovering the data is to send it to Lenovo, the harddisk manufacturer, or certain recovery agencies. All of them will require proof of ownership, that the notebook and harddisk belongs to the customer. Without that, the data can't be recovered.
