As previously mentioned on this & numerous forums, you need
to contact the vendor with proof of purchase.

UK MP's are thieving scumbags.
EU members are worse.

Says to erase the drive to remove password. Hope there isn't any important files on it.

Unless you are the legal owner of the computer the hard drive is now a paper weight. If the bios have also been password protected then you have a lot of spare parts...:-(

Assuming...this is a laptop.

I didn't check the specs, it's a Wd passport hard disk.

So, it's not a laptop.

Jefro is right.
