Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: DriveLock HDD Bay Password
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?

Hi you can disable drivelock by entering system bios and security settings. Please read the notes below and remember you can only do when starting the pc and not when you're restarting.
DriveLock passwords Enable/disable DriveLock; change a DriveLock
user or master password.
✎ DriveLock Settings are accessible only
when you enter Computer Setup by turning
on (not restarting) the computer.
Hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
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
