How to recover an encrypted drive?

the laptop had some Hdd Bios password option, so i'm guessing that it also encrypted it, but is there some software tool available to enter that password again and see the Hdd content?
or maybe i just need another laptop with same specs to open it again?

How to triple boot win7, xp and linux on ssd?

well... it's not actually that hard at all lol... just have to create an extended+logical partitions for linux and then select only "/dev/sda" Grub option at the end, because it is the only option that will make things work properly... (and also have to choose "Partition->Swapon"...

How to triple boot win7, xp and linux on ssd?

well, i should probably initialize the disk as Mbr first, not Gpt? (it's 512gb) and then maybe create the partitions via the installation wizards only, because windows 7 will add it's own 2 boot partitions or smth and then they will be in good order also? but the main issue is probably that linux wi...

ST31000528AS, 1TB 7200.12

well, i probably found out that it actually had a faulty power cable also, but after i now tried to run "chkdsk /r" command, it actually turned it into quite unusable drive, because it now only gives a cyclic redundancy check error and the whole drive is "unallocated"? exactly li...
