Your best option is to get the password from your Ex. Other than that I see little hope of ever accessing that hard drive.

Using all caps on a forum will make your post different from others, but not in a good way. It is like shouting.

What exactly do you mean by drive lock password? Does the laptop allow you into Windows(or whatever OS the machine uses)? Do you mean the login password? If the machine is asking you for a security code before it boots up, it's probably what's called the BIOS password by some. I would suggest contacting the laptop manufacturer about that, as resetting the BIOs jumper probably won't work. If you are in the OS, and it's asking you for a password to access certain files, those files either have another owner(in a computer sense that some other login made the files), or they have been encrypted. If you have administrator access to the machine, you can take ownership of the files, if they got encrypted, you are sadly out of luck without the password..
