    Default drivelock issue

    I've got one for you guys. Have a Compaq Evo N610c laptop with Toshiba hard drive. The BIOS/System/Drivelock passwords were NEVER set- in fact there wasn't even a Windows password. The system got a few viruses that coulnd't be removed by the antivirus software that was in there- so I pulled the drive and hooked it up to a USB adapter on my desktop. The desktop recognized, I scanned it and removed several viruses and then did a spyware scan too. NOW, when I put it back into the laptop, it's asking for the Drivelock password- which there isn't one. Also, if I try to hook it back up to the USB adapter or even connect it to the IDE bus with an adapter internally, the platters are locked- so I can no longer get any of my data off the drive. You guys ever see this sort of thing? I'm willing to try most anything now to be able to get my pictures off the laptop drive.

    Hi Brainstorm,
    Do you have a drivelock on the desktolp you used? If so maybe that password will let you in.
    Also does your AV software create a locked folder? If so did you set a default password for that function?
    Hope this helps.
