When I set the HDD password, I was able to remove it in the BIOS.

Have you tried removing it in the BIOS yet? Hold ESC when the laptop is powered on.

The HDD password cannot be removed using Security Assist.

Using SETUP BIOS, Tab to the HDD Password section which should be displayed as follows:
HDD Password
HDD = Built-in HDD
HDD Password Mode = USER Only
User Password = Registered

Tab to the "User Password" field and simply enter the old password and then a new one twice (once to verify) as one would do normally.
If you don't want a password, just press "enter" twice

That's all....
