The laptop hard drive has had a password installed on it by someone play a practical joke, we can only hope, can I use this hard drive as a slave to access the data?

no, hard drive locks are at the firmware level and no way to really bypass them.

Besides if you read the rules, you would know that Tom's doesn't help with these kinds of questions as there is no way to know you are the owner of the hard drive and no one wants to be a part of helping you access data that is your companies or from a stolen laptop or your partner.

I didn't realise I had to prove ownership of a computer. Sorry about that.
