I believe that's a BIOS password you are referring to. If the laptop is indeed stolen then this will weed it out.
Call the manufactuer and ask about your problem. They should need certain information to help you, they can help you, sometimes it involves sending it in. HOWEVER, if it's stolen, it will be flagged when it's service tag (BIOS related and unchangable) comes up with someone else's name, address, etc. And authorities will end up being at your door. So, if it's stolen I guess you'll find out :) And if not, well, then your problem will be fixed.

    I removed the CMOS battery out of my NV55CO3u gateway laptop and it still didnt remove the Unlock password that I forgot.


    Take the battery out of the laptop and then hold the power button on the laptop for 2 minutes.

    This should reset the BOIS and erase the unlock password.

    Need to unlock gateway 7330GZ hdd


    So who put the password on it? 99% of the time if there is a Hard Drive Password and the person in possession of the laptop don't know the password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner put the password lock on the hard drive to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have set the password remotely once the laptop was stolen. Your system is toast. The only remedy is to get the original owner to remove the password.

    I forgot my gateway model ML6230 bios password, i need a new password for it (reset the password).


    A method you can try if you don't have a password reset software is by removing the CMOS battery. Remove the CMOS battery then turn the computer on. The system BIOS will be reset and password will be removed. Then you can put the battery back in. Click on this link for the Gateway ML6230 Notebook PC Manual. Check page 36 for CMOS battery removal instructions.

    The recovery/removal of a hdd password is a professional job, extremely expensive. Just buy a new one and reinstall, your data is lost anyway.
