Try removing your HDD very carefully. Check configuartion and type you need to purchase an external USB converter adapter depending on your HDD type then open it in another PC you can basically save the data there. To remove the driver lock you may try opening the BIOS by f8 or f10 during reboot and disable driver lock there if it asks for a pass key and you dont have it then you can try the first option of saving the file and reformating your hard Disk. Hope this helps.

Hp nx6110 laptop is power lock what is unlockng process


Disconnected the RTC battery will unlock your system. See the steps below.

The more important it is to protect on's data by a DriveLock (which makes the HDD usuable when the password is not available).

Procedure to remove password
(following CPQ MSGs)

1.) Unplug AC, take out the main battery.

2.) Take out /disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery for app. Half an hour (the period of 5 min as specified in the MSG normally is not long enough).

3.) Plug in the AC adapter (batteries still removed); computer should boot automatically, if not use the power button.

4.) The machine will boot and show the 162-error-msg "system options not set". Use F1 to save the settings.

5.) Shut down the computer and disconnect AC power again.
6.) Re-connect the RTC-battery.
7.) Install the battery pack(s).
8.) Restart the computer.

Warning: All settings are set back to factory standard.
You'll have to enter a correct date/time and change the settings to your needs.

Note: Pls strictly keep to the sequence.
Re-starting with the main battery and or RTC-battery inserted will spoil the job.

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

DriveLock HDD Bay Password


hello,

Will your NX6110 allow you to get into the Bios before the drive lock password coes up? If it doesnt and you dont know the password, you have two options. One being to send the laptop off somewhere to get the password an pay thru the nose. The other is just to buy another hard drive and re-load your system. Those passwords are build into the hard drives and there is really no way to get the password easily. You could of course pay for a machine that will hopefully get your password, but why pay all that money just to use it once, or twice. It comes down to the facts of how importand is the data on your hard drive?

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


This hard drive password promt is an indicator that the hard drive has failed. There is a password section on every hard drive, it's a manufacturer tool, but it can't be accessed or set unless you have a program that will open and allow you access to this area. When this prompt come up, out of the blue so to speak, then generally the hard drive has malfunctioned. Now if I am misunderstanding you and this not a hdd password and it's a bios password, then you will need to contact Compaq support for clearing it.
