"I am tired of reading the same stuff on different sites"

Albert Einstein defined insanity as the act of doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

You know what the answer is, what do you expect us to tell you?

i really dont know the answer. i was just wanting to know if there is a simple way to unlock this thing without having the laptop it came from. from what i have read, the bios lock on the hdd has to match the motherboard it came from? im not at all a smart person when it comes to this stuff. im working on being self taught.

No there isn't unless you have the resources of the CIA at your disposal. Even with the computer that it originally came with you would still need a password. Probably why the disk was removed in the first place,

It is a security measure because lap tops are so easily stolen. Looks like it is working well in this instance.

A HD password is a security measure. If a security measure is to be of any value it must be secure. If there was an easy way to get around a HD password (with or without the original computer) it would not serve it's intended purpose. If such a method was possible it would be all over the Internet and the password would be nothing more than a speed bump to a thief.
