If this isn't a bios password then you press the F11 key at start-up and you should be presented with the Gateway System Recovery option. That will allow you to restore your computer to it's originally installed state.
If it is a bios password...
Please contact Gateway, I cannot assist in helping to bypass security features.
You may have corrupted BIOS. If so, you need to download your BIOS to a flash drive and try to recover it. Some Gateway users have seen this with the Insyde BIOS. See: http://forum.notebookreview.com/gateway-emachines/589067-gateway-nv78-insyde-bios-recovery-filename-hangs-bios-splash-screen.html
Windows won't start up? Well, try this Download Tenorshare Data Recovery from its offical site and install it. Burn it into CD/DVD, or USB flash, put into the computer you need to repair, Bios setting.It can make sure your important data will not lose.Best of luck Related: windows won't start
Pull the hard drive out and determine if it is an IDE or a SATA drive and just order a new one. Other than the type of drive and perhaps some size limitations in the BIOS of that computer, they are compatable with any 2.5" drive.
This will be with the memory or a software conflict. To be perfectly honest, this machine shouldn't be doing this since it's only three days old. I would take it back for an exchange. This is a good model and this is not a common problem with these. If you exchange it for the same model I think you'll find that this is a good machine and you'll see that it shouldn't lock up. I've got a Gateway that is approx two years old and it hasn't locked up five times since I've had it. Occasionally, yes, but five times in it's first three days, no. You're going to have bigger problems if you keep it.
