Having problems with your Compaq Evo N610C Notebook ?

I have two compaq evos - N600C and N610C - both have the DRIVELOCK shaded in the BIOS not allowing me to boot from CD, floppy, or harddive. I have removed the CMOS battery hoping this would reset. No luck. Help!

Hi Ted_steppe,
\015\012
\015\012I 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.
\015\012
\015\012I think that you have to get into the bios first. Lets see if I can show you how I helped it to boot up:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. at the blue screen I pressed the F10 Key which took me into setup
  2. \015\012
  3. i then selected the security tab
  4. \015\012
  5. and then I think I selected drivelock password
  6. \015\012
  7. 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.
  8. \015\012
  9. 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.
  10. \015\012
  11. I waited... and a black screen apeared with the wite cursor blinking
  12. \015\012
  13. and I waited... this time about 5 mins passed and then windows started to load. Thank God!
\015\012I hope you get some joy out of this post and it's not too late for your laptops.
\015\012
\015\012above all have fun

How many minutes did you remove the cmos bat? try removing the bat for about an hour cos there are many capacitor charged in your motherboard so it needs time to discharge.
