I'm in the same dilemma with a locked-down Dell. I was able to get a backdoor password for the BIOS from Dell, but I still cannot perform any actions to the hard drive because it is locked down via password during POST. I've poked around and seen A) You're Screwed, or B) try hddunlock.com. I'm hesitant to pay for something I'm not certain would work, especially from a site I've never heard of, but we'll see. I'd like to be able to use this laptop without buying a new drive.
