Hi apr_angel_2,
\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\012!st 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 which requested the 'drivelock multibay password' 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 helps you access your Compac notebook.
\015\012
\015\012Cheers
