Follow this link;
and next time a word to the wise, don't let anyone near your computer. and next time you see that guy, i'd tell him you had to pay $100 to get it fixed and charge him
that might have been funny at the time, but really isn't

The only thing I can come up with is to clear the bios by shorting the mainboard at the "Bios Clear" point.
Other than that have a loo at this website: http://rahulhackingarticles.wetpaint.com/page/Clear+BIOS+Password,+All+tricks+!
Good page, interesting reading if your in to Tech.

How long did you leave the battery out?
To discharge the BIOS you need to short out the battery contacts, or disconnect the battery for 1/2+ hours.
If this does not work the it is near impossible to remove because the password would be stored on an EEPROM chip.
Check with Gateway, they might suggest a motherboard replacement just like IBM.

What make/model of computer? What operating system? What BIOS type/version/revision?
There IS a way to reset it without losing the data on the drive. It sounds like he has set up a password in the system BIOS or either password protected an entire volume in Win 200x/Vista.
If he has set a BIOS pw, you can remove the batteries and jumper the CMOS reset pin for a few seconds...IF you can get to it. If you can determine the BIOS name/version, I can probably put you onto a boot diskette that will clear the BIOS.
For 3 bucks, I'll send the boyfriend a virus!!! lol
