Here I am, with the solution...

1. The HDD password cannot be removed using Security Assist.

2. Using SETUP BIOS go 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

3. 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

Or try this:

enter BIOS
arrow down to HDD Password "Registered" field
hit <backspace> key
Enter the existing password then <enter>
Enter the new password (or leave blank if you don’t want a any password), then <enter>
Respond to confirm by retyping new password (or leave blank - see above) then <enter>

That's all....
