My brothers laptop, which I maintain, has mysteriously had a password placed on the HDD. I say mysterious because he claims no knowledge. Past experience justifies my doubt, but I want to be fair. Is there any other way that this could have happened without his direct action OR could this demand for a password indicate some other problem such as a bad HDD. Trying to be fair.

Interesting. Can you tell me what kind BIOS events could have caused this, other than the obvious setting of the HDD password through BIOS?
