Most gateway computers have a boot that shows up on the right top side of the screen when you turn it on.There should be one that says system restore example (F12=system restore/recovery) one of those push F12 ect. whatever button it shows beside it and that will recover it to factory setting which wipes out everything that the old owner downloaded it also removes that password protection.

Got locked out of my laptop its asking for a password & i have never had one


The person who owned it before you has probably put a bios password in the computer locking you out. I strongly recommend you take it back to the pawn shop and get your money back, or the seller gets a hold of the customer to get the required information, because without it the laptop is useless to you.

Just bought a Eee PC 1000HA from a pawn shop, and when I charged it and turned it on, it goes to a bios screen that says at the bottom that the hard disk is locked. It ask's for user password or press ESC...


When buying things from a pawn shop, it is wise to check it out to see if it functions properly before you purchase it.
Hard disk passwords cannot be broken/hacked, and putting a new hard disk in the laptop may not work, this depends upon the BIOS password setup.
I suggest you try and return it and get a refund.
