Specs: Windows 7, 1.73 ghz
I have a new dell laptop and have somehow set the hdd password and have no idea what it is or how to remove it. I can get into bios by hitting f2 but that is as far as I can go! Any suggestions??

New guy here,,,I had the HDD password lockout same as you.....All you need to do is buy new HDDand install OS. Yes, its that easy, the password HDD is from Seagate, not Dell. Dell suport could not give me the password and wanted to send out a tech. I just went down to Fry's and 1 hour later good as new.

Hope tpo get the word out that the HDD password for our models is not the dreaded motherboard/HDD,
