Your can try recovering the HDD password with this company. Look at the list of supported drives. Yours may or may not be listed. The download is free and the scan will take a long time on a large capacity drive. It will let you know if the password was found. You can then purchase the recovery password. Price depends on the size of the drive and you will need to think about cost of recovery vs the cost of a new drive. When the password is recovered, all data currently on the drive will be lost.
The software is listed for XP and 2000 but I cant confirm if it will work on a Windows 7 or later computer. You would need to put the drive in an enclosure or use a USB type adapter to run the scan. Personally, I would opt for a new drive.
