    I want to remove the *well-known* HDD password at my Toshiba Portege M400.
    I did not find any option at BIOS or installed software from Toshiba support.
    I strongly need your help.

    BIOS= 3.80
    OS - Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit Ru

    Password option - only at startup password cheking. Not HDD password in my BIOS. I think *HDD Password Options* was at last version of BIOS but not in 3.80.
    I looking at this forum and Google - not find ansver.
    Program MHDD did not see the hard disk =(

    As far as I know HDD password cannot be removed. It is saved on HDD directly and I think BIOS has nothing to do with this.

    Interesting documents about HDD password:
