Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
I just got a compaq armada E500 laptop with a "p"3 and I cant get past a password ( Drivelock HDDBay Password ) what should I do? please help its for my 8 year olds B-day. HDD Drivelock
Basically, for most of the notebooks, there is a Password provided to secure the data in the Hard Drive and restrict it from un-authorize access.
However, if the Drive Lock Password is set and forgot, it is not possible to unlock the Drive without the password.
However, you can try contacting any of your Friends who is familier with Hard Drives and is a technician who should be having some advanced methods to remove the Password or the Circuit Board of the Hard Drive.

Tips for a great answer:
The Compaq drivelock feature is designed to protect the data on a laptop's hard drive by assigning a password.
This password protects the drive in the event the laptop is lost or stolen, but can be removed when necessary.
Knowing how to remove or change the drivelock feature can make your Compaq more useful and more secure.
Power on your laptop and enter the drivelock password you established when you turned the drive protection feature on.
You will need this password to access the drive and turn off the drivelock feature.
Click the "Disabled" option in the drivelock menu.
This will turn off the drivelock feature on the Compaq laptop.
Do not enter anything in the password blocks.
Log on to the laptop, click the "Start" button and choose "Shut down." Choose "Restart" from the menu to power cycle your laptop and verify the drivelock setting is off.
If the drivelock setting is off you will not be prompted for a password when the laptop starts up.
hope this helps
