The hard drive on my laptop has gone bad and I am afraid if I spend $100 to buy a replacement for it, I will not be able to install it and make it work. Here is why: My laptop can only be booted from the hard drive, and the booting sequence on the BOIS cannot be changed, because it is locked and password-protected. Worst of all, I have forgotten my administrative password to unlock it. Does anyone have any advice for me, please? I will appreciate it. Thanks!

Hey, as far as I know, with laptops the only way to unlock the BIOS password is to take it to an authorised service center

Be prepared to show proof of ownership as they are gonna ask for it.

But if you are gonna replace a new hard drive, it doesn't matter whether your BIOS is locked, the new hard drive will work fine
