    Do you have the password for the drivelock and simply want to remove its functionality, or do you not know it anymore and want to unlock it somehow?

  1. Remove the real-time clock (RTC) battery.
  2. Wait approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the notebook.
  4. Connect AC power to the notebook. Do not reinsert any battery packs at this time.
  5. Turn on the notebook.

How to disable drivelock password.I don't know the password. It was inadvertantly set by one of my kids.


Unless you set a master DriveLock password to reset it with, then (according to HP at least) the hard drive will be rendered completely unusable. I think your best bet would be to try and get your kids to give you the password.

How to disable drivelock password


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

MY HP COMPAQ NC 6000 LAPTOP request a Drivelock HDD bay password


Hi kala_mumbe,

I know how you feel as my HP pavilion has had the same blue screen ansking for the 'drivelock multibay password' . the good news is i have fixed it just 5 mins ago.

I think that you have to get into the bios first. Lets see if I can show you how I helped it to boot up:
  1. at the blue screen I pressed the F10 Key which took me into setup
  2. i then selected the security tab
  3. and then I think I selected drivelock password
  4. and then selected the "Notebook hard drive" item where I tried to disable, with no success

    PLEASE NOTE: at this point I noticed that each time that i tried to disable the password it kept returning to the item 'Notebook hard drive' . I thought to myself that maybe this is the password and not just an item on the list, so I carefully wrote down .. Notebook hard drive .. taking note of capitalization and spaces and then exited setup.
  5. I then noticed that there was nowhere to enter the password so i carefully typed .. Notebook hard drive .. onto the keyboard, and waited. After about 1 min a small 'OK' appeared inside the blue box and my heart leaped for joy inside my chest.
  6. I waited... and a black screen apeared with the wite cursor blinking
  7. and I waited... this time about 5 mins passed and then windows started to load. Thank God!
I hope you get some joy out of this post and it's not too late for your Campac Laptop.

happy, happy

Help how do i remove power on password to model nc6120


I would suggest checking the website of your laptops manufacturer on how to access the BIOS Battery.

When you have gotten to it, remove the BIOS Battery for several (10-20) seconds and then put it back in.

How do I get past this Drivelock HDDBay password


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.

Drivelock password


only one best way is, trying to remember password because it's no so easy to unlock drive. And if you really wanna get unlocked your drive then you need to send back your drive to manufacturer because there are no such an easy way to unlock drive.
but it's expensive to get recover back from manufacturer so it's better getting new one.
thanks.
