This is a protection feature on the system and i'm guessing one of the users on this system set it up - intentionally or accidentally. Best resolution to this (apart from replaceing the Hard drive) is to contact the vendor of the product and get the master password for the system.

How did I reset my HDD password on my gateway M405?


When you first turn on your system there should be a message at the bottom for you to choose an "F" key to enter BIOS. When you push that "F" key and enter BIOS choose the tab that says system. When you do the USER, HDD and Admin password will pop up. Choose the HDD and click enter. IT will ask for a password, dont type anything just simply click enter, and when it asks to retype the password push enter again. What this does is let the BIOS know it is a "CLEAR" password and lets it know not to ask for one. After you do that choose the "F" key that allows you to exit and save. Your system will re boot and will no longer should ask for a password to your HDD.

How to HDD PAssword Removal for Gateway MX6128 Laptop?


The difficulty of unlocking a HDD password will depend on how old and what model the computer is. You might want to try to crack it before trying other methods. Removing the HD will not fix the problem either. Your best bet is to contact a company that can do it for you. Here is a link to one such company with more information as well:

NO LCD PICTURE


Attach an external monitor to the laptop and boot the laptop.
If you get video to the screen then it is probably the inverter for the laptop screen has failed and can be replaced.
If you have no screen available, then turn the laptop on, shine a bright light into the screen from an angle and see if you can see any kind of images at all. Best to wait 2 minutes from when it is first booted to allow enough time for Windows to load.

Hope that helps =)
