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.

I have a Compaq desktop PC , model no. " (AK)


you will have to google the make/model. I recommend you use Gateway instead of compaq as only gateway results show if the model-only is googled. I don't believe that is a compaq, nor does it follow their normal 'naming' schema.

Once you locate the manual you will search it for the BIOS password reset instructions. That model may also have the Hard drive locked, once you are able to enter the BIOS you can follow the manual's instructions to look-for, and if found, clear any Hard drive password.

Note: Clearing the BIOS passwords will have no effect on any Operating System password on your User Account, (if any.)

My gateway m series is asking for my hdd pasword when i turned it on ive never set one up so have no idea what to do at its stuck on it


I am assuming this is a BIOS password.

Inside your case on the motherboard there should be a password reset jumper. You may have to search for it. If you have documentation on your system, it may help. You can also get help from Gateway support for your specific model and motherboard.

You normally have to move the jumper from pins 1 & 2, to pins 2 & 3 and reboot. You should get a message that the password has been cleared. Shut down, move the jumper back to its original position and reboot.
