It is correct... if it is set to "high Security Mode" you can kiss the drive goodbye, or go visit a Hypnotist to make you remember..lol

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

How I Found My 'Drivelock Multibay Password'


If your reading this then your probably almost out of your mind with despair reading the hundreds of posts and articles saying to forget your data that you have to get a new hard drive,

I know how you feel as my HP pavilion has had the same blue screen asking 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 notebook.

above all have fun

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.

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.
