Unfortunately Microsoft Support Engineers cannot help you retrieve passwords of files and features in Microsoft products that are lost or forgotten in such a situation or unlock windows 7 passwords, but fortunately they are external software providers that provide "windows 7 password resetting" or recovery products.

You can get this recovery software here at www.windowsrecoverpassword.com

What does configure drivelock passwords mean?


Drivelock is a security feature that allows you to password protect a harddrive. The big feature here is the password is actually on the harddrive itself and if the drive is moved to a different system you will need the password to unlock it there too. It should be noted that password recovery for this is not an easy task. So don't lose the password :-)

It seems that drive lock for this drive is enabled from BIOS. Is BIOS also password protected? Drivelock can be removed from there.

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

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.

Drivelock password


If the lock is on the bios, then remove the bios battery and all other power sources to the laptop. (including the main battery) for at least 10 minutes. Then press and hold the power button for a few seconds to discharge the laptop completely.
When you first boot back up you will have to enter the bios and reset all the options.

If this is a lock on the Hard Drive though, then it will have to be removed by a professional outfit. Replacing the drive is cheaper unless you need the data off it of course.
Sometimes there is a master lock key that is set at the factory that can bypass this as well, but I would need your hard drive model to even begin to look for it.

If the lock is in a security chip on the laptop itself, then the only way to remove it is to have the old chip removed and a new one attached. Very expensive. Again there are places that can do it.

So, please report back exactly what the message says and we can look into it further from there =)

Drive LOCk


Hey,

I supose you can't use the pc without the password?

You would loose all the data, you need to remove the harddrive from the laptop, buy a a converter

http://www.shopaddonics.com/mmSHOPADDONICS/images/aa25ide35.gif

http://www.addonics.com/products/io/aa25ide35.asp

then plug it into your desktop pc.
and empty the drive totaly.

This can be done with formating it in windows or
useing the manufacturers tools.

if you need more assistance let me know
oh and can you use the laptop with the drivelock installed?
if you can use the laptop in windows you could probably somehow uninstall it.
