How I Found My 'Drivelock Multibay Password'

If your reading this then your probably almost out of your mind with despair reading the hundreds of posts and articles saying to forget your data that you have to get a new hard drive,

I know how you feel as my HP pavilion has had the same blue screen asking for the 'drivelock multibay password' . the good news is i have fixed it just 5 mins ago.

I think that you have to get into the bios first. Lets see if I can show you how I helped it to boot up:

  1. at the blue screen I pressed the F10 Key which took me into setup
  2. i then selected the security tab
  3. and then I think I selected drivelock password
  4. and then selected the "Notebook hard drive" item where I tried to disable, with no success

    PLEASE NOTE: at this point I noticed that each time that i tried to disable the password it kept returning to the item 'Notebook hard drive' . I thought to myself that maybe this is the password and not just an item on the list, so I carefully wrote down .. Notebook hard drive .. taking note of capitalization and spaces and then exited setup.
  5. I then noticed that there was nowhere to enter the password so i carefully typed .. Notebook hard drive .. onto the keyboard, and waited. After about 1 min a small 'OK' appeared inside the blue box and my heart leaped for joy inside my chest.
  6. I waited... and a black screen apeared with the wite cursor blinking
  7. and I waited... this time about 5 mins passed and then windows started to load. Thank God!
I hope you get some joy out of this post and it's not too late for your notebook.

above all have fun

smells like burning


what system? are you on, PC, DVR, mac, what?
can never be good that.
as always, first find out what smells bad.
then post back here.
if the hdd is actually smoking, (surely a rare thing)
if the drive is dead in 2 systems it is dead.
if partial dead, there is recovery software you can buy.

the #1 PC smoker is the main powersupply the PSU.
the solution is a new one.

my itouch is disavle due to forget passcode and it shows to connet it to itune but itouch has passcode so itouch is not opening, give me prober suggestion


Alright so you need to force recovery on the iPhone and Restore it, probably as new Restoring consists of erasing all data on the iPhone and reinstalling it, there is a chance you will get your information back, but this is the only thing you can do at this point.
Follow this article and it will show you how to force iTunes to recognize your iPhone, without the passcode lock, this will then let you restore it. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808

Once the restore is done, it may ask you if you want to load your backup onto the iPhone, keep in mind by trying to use that backup it may ask for the passcode again. For best results, do not load from a backup and choose Restore as a New Device.
