"@cmg01 you could try to reset it by following the steps from here.

If that does not work you maybe dealing with an an ATA password which then it is possible that the info is stored on the hard drive itself.  Certain hard drives store drive parameters such as the password etc., on the platter.  Some drives store that information on a chip on the PCB.  There might be a chance to retrieve your data from the HDD if you can find the exact PCB for your hard drive and swap the PCB . Even that is a big maybe."
