HDD passwords cannot be bypassed, even by the manufacturer of the drive and/or laptop. This is to ensure that secured data is in fact secure, no matter how hard someone tries.

I have heard of data recovery centers that are able to dismantle the HDD in a clean room and read data bit by bit, but that would start around $2000.

Dell Latitude D620 "Hard disk #DPOXKKP7P7M-595B, the system primary HDD, is protected by a password authentication system..." -service tag: DZMBTB1... Can u please help me with unlocking?

I think there is a new feature on later notebooks, called "drive-lock".
It uses a password to lock the hdd, even if the hdd is swapped to another PC.

You might be able to get round it, if you connect it to an old Laptop or Desktop, where the bios doesn't support "drive-lock".

Or you could try "Ultimate Boot CD" from
This will allow you to make a boot CD.
You could then try the program called "ATA Password Tool 1.1", which is supposed to unlock any locked hdd.

And if that doesn't work you'll need to call up dell.

I have an HP Compaq Presario V2000 and I've been locked out.

You might get in using "Safe Mode" and going throught the Administrator account. If you have no password on that one (most people don't) then all you need to do is hit enter. If you have the same account listed on your Welcome page try it there first. If not Google password recovery. There are some free password recovery programs online that could help. Only other choice is to have your documents backed up by pulling the HDD then do a full recovery using the recovery partition or CD.
