If it is truly the HD password that has been set, then there is no way to unlock it by resetting the BIOS. The HD password is stored on the drive itself and not removeable without knowing the password. Even if the drive were pulled and installed in another PC, it would still remain locked. There is software that claim to be able to unlock some drives, but I've never had occasion to test it. If you feel brave and have nothing else to lose, then you might want to give it a shot.
