REMOVE HDD PASSWORD ON LENOVO G570 laptop

pfokho
By way of experimentation I have set the password to my SATA HDD drive of my Lenovo G570 laptop. Now, every time I open my laptop I need to enter the HDD password. This is quite annoying. Please HELP me remove the password. (I am new to computers, so please be detailed about your replies:-) :-)

    TR members do not assist in password recovery or removal.
    Do not respond to this thread.

    We, the members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery/removal of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover/remove a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we, the members of TechRepublic, will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

    If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery/removal issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery/removal issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, hard drive password recovery/removal should be taken up with the manufacturer of the hard drive, etc...
