Set the PC to require a login or you can use a BIOS password but don't forget, if someone puts the HD in another machine, a BIOS password won't help.

You could also look into drive encryption software.

This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:

In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.

Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.



B. By Using Software:


I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

I find this statement untrue. Most if not all but a few motherboards that I have dealt with in my career have had a removeable CMOS battery.

I suggest setting a BIOS password AND using some encryption software as have been mentioned above. Encryption is probably the most secure way to go as BIOS passwords and login passwords can be obtained or cleared.

You will want to do some research on encryption software for your hard disk though as it can be for the more techincally advanced users.

put the password in the bios so that no one can not open it.

you can use the strong password in the computer log on so that no one can not break your password.

there is no way to put the password in the hard disk.

you can put the password in the computer only.

use the admin password to safe the data in the hard disk.
