Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
Try entering your "Setup" or "BIOS" and find the area for "Security". From there you should be able to change the password that it has on it. If your "Setup" or "BIOS" has a password on it and you don't know it, then it is likely that your laptop is worthless to you now. Unlike desktop computers that usually have a BIOS or CMOS reset on the motherboard, laptops seldom have this option. If your's has a RESET on it then it will likely be a little pin-hole on the bottom of the laptop that says RESET next to it.

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
