If this is a drive locker done by the BIOS then you don't. I have tried with an HP and not even their tech support could do it. You either have to take the drive to a data recovery company (Very expensive for a locked drive) or format it. We ended up tracking down the employee and got the password from them. Was nice of him being that we layed him off.

If you have the password and just want to turn off the Drive Lock then...

1) turn on the machine and press "F2" to go into set up.

2) Press alt-p seven times to go to the last page.

3)Press the down arrow to highlight HDD password. Set a password as instructed and reboot the machine.

4) You can remove this password later once your machine starts fine.
