Unless you know the password or can get the drive manufacturer to give you some kind of master reset password, the drive's as good as useless. Long story short, I was told this, in person, by a Toshiba engineer a couple years back. They have no way of undoing passwords set at the BIOS/uEFI level on a drive. Now, if we're talking some other kind of drive locking, you'll need to be more specific.
