Power On The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC. If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty. Drive Lock The Drive Lock password protects the data on your hard drive through encryption. If your computer is stolen, the data on the hard drive is inaccessible without the Drive Lock password. This password cannot be reset. If it is lost or forgotten, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. This service is not covered by the warranty.

How to find factory settings partition


While many problems can be solved by less drastic measures, Compaq owners sometimes need to restore their computers back to factory new condition.


If the operating system becomes corrupt, or if the computer is struck with a persistent virus, restoring the PC to its original factory default settings is often the best way to deal with the problem.


While older Compaqs relied on restore CDs to restore factory settings, newer machines come with a recovery partition built into the unit.


Shut down the Compaq computer and wait for it to power off.

Press the "Power" button to restart it.


Press the "F11" key as soon as you see a black screen.

This will boot the Compaq into the recovery partition.


Follow the on-screen instructions to back up any user files before the recovery process begins.

Click "Next" to start the recovery manager and follow the on-screen instructions.


Hope this helps.

Just need to know how to unlock it. I purchased it and it has a password need. can you tell me how to open/bypass this?


What model is it?
Where or when exactly is it asking for the password?
It could either be a BIOS, hard drive or Windows password. Can you be more specific?

Most, if not all, Compaq Presario notebooks have a recovery function that can be accessed by pressing EITHER F10 or F11 (depending on the model) when you power the machine up.

This will revert the computer back to factory settings, deleting all files currently on it, including Windows passwords. If you have files on it & it's asking for a Windows password, there are other ways to bypass it without deleting files.

It should work unless it's a BIOS or hard drive password that's preventing you from using it. Should that be the case, the password may have been put on there at the store where it was bought or the previous owner, if applicable. You may have to contact them if the recovery fails or cannot be accessed because of said password.
