when you say password locked do you mean you can't access folders on it with out a password? or is it encrypted with a PW

either way you can wipe it using gparted as railfan stated

Use "ophcrack." Based on Linux, so boot from it. It will brute force the drive and present the password(s) in a neat Gedit text file.

Brute forcing a password could take nearly forever if the password but there aren't other options that I am aware of.

I presume it's quite an easy password based on a dictionary word. Lets face it, most are. His Phenom will rip through it biggrin.gif

Again, what sort of password is it? Is this a Windows based password on the directory? Is it encrypted? Are you trying to access the data or just use the drive for another purpose? We don't have enough information to be throwing out solutions.

This.
Ophcrack (shoot-off from lophtcrack, iirc) will do it easily.

It's like BIOS password protected. I"m not sure what to name it.

It's one of those passwords where it wont POST to windows until you put in the correct password
