Sometimes, passwordprotection is just a software-issue. In such case you can consider to hook this harddisk to another computer, to see if this protection is still active.
If it is, than it might some software located at your external harddisk. If it does, it's good to verify if it is loaded by a .ini-file.
Windows, for example is default set to check for new hardware, and if it is a harddisk, to explore it in the background. If there's an ini-file in the root, it'll read this file, which might link to a program to activate (located at your harddisk). If you're able to remove this file, you've overcome this protection.
For this, you need to go to "start" and then enter the following command : "cmd" or "command" (without the " ").
NOTE : I don't know which type of Windows you use. Some Windows-versions expect cmd, some command.
If you succeeded, a window will pop-up, with black text. Then go to the specific drive. If your drive is known as D-drive, enter "D:"
Than enter "dir autorun.ini" .
If you see this file is present, then delete this file by :
"delete d:\autorun.ini".
If succeeded type "exit"
Finally, reboot your PC and see if your protection is gone.

Presario v4000 need bios password

You will have to remove the power cord, remove the battery and remove the CMOS Battery that is located on the motherboard. On most computers you will have to take the laptop apart to get to the cmos battery. On some systems it looks like a silver nickel that you will need a small flat head screw driver to pop it out. On other systems it will be inside a vinyl covering and has a cable that plugs into the motherboard. Once you remove the CMOS Battery, let it sit for an hour or two then put it back in and put the laptop back together. Boot the machine and you'll probably have to go into the Bios or System Setup because the system will have forgotten the date, time and password.
If the password is not reset then you will have to short the password jumper on the motherboard with a screwdriver or there may be a pin on the motherboard that you can remove to reset it. I would consult the owners manual before attempting either of these two options.
I found the info below in the owners manual
1.2 Resetting the Computer
If the computer you are servicing has an unknown password,
follow these steps to set a new password. These steps also
clear CMOS
1. Enter an incorrect password and press enter.
2. Repeat step 1 two more times.
After the third entry of the incorrect password, the computer
responds with a System Disabled message and provides an
override password.
3. On another computer running Windows XP, download the
unlock6.exe utility from the HP Channel Services Network
(CSN) Web site at Copy the
unlock6.exe utility into the root directory (C\ drive).
4. Access MS DOS by clicking Start/All Programs/
Accessories/Command Prompt.
5. Enter unlock6 xxxxx 0, where xxxxx is the password
generated by the computer in step 2.
The computer responds with another system generated
6. Enter the password generated in step 5 on the disabled
computer to enter the system BIOS. In the BIOS, navigate
to the Security tab and Administrator Password. Enter the
password generated in step 5 as the current password. Enter
a new password to change it.
7. The password has been reset and all CMOS settings have
been cleared.
