Question about Gateway Nv55s17u Laptop

1 Answer

Windows pc laptop

Hello, I own a Gateway NV55s17u laptop. A while back, I decided to put a HDD password on my Gateway for security purposes. After a while, I became busy and didn't have time to use my computer. When I was finally able to use my computer (About a month later), I forgot the HDD password. Is there any way to unlock the HDD password without having to pay 60-500$? (Any free/sort of free way?)

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:

SOURCE: i had changed my password and forgot it how can i

If the password is on the bios then this won't help, but if the password is on windows in the Log On Screen then try this win Xp and win Vista only:
When booting Up teh machine press (F8) that will give many options Select "Safe Mode" then wait until boots up and there will be an administrator account log into that acount and then go to "Start>control pannel>User Accounts then choose an account and remove the password . Hope this helps you

There isn't one, either take the laptop apart and remove the CMOS battery for 10 seconds or download and burn hiren 15 to a CD and use one of the CMOS password wipers.

I have a gateway M305CRV with a HDD password that needs removed. Would prefer not to take it apart if that's possible, but if that's the only way so be it.


When you first turn on the computer then you change that using the bios menus. That's if you mean its a hdd password vs a windows. Also, you can try right clicking the hdd icon then choose properties. The security settings for it can be changed here.

Hdd password reset


Hi,
Laptops have the option to password protect for security purposes. If the laptop should be lost-stolen. this is to ensure your personnal data, cannot be accessed by any tom dick and harry.
Post your laptop model number, and i,ll see if anything can be done.
i do not endorse password removal, as the majority of the time, a user cannot prove that the laptop actually belongs to them.
I,d also feel happier if you could also prove in any way, that you are the legal owner of the laptop in question.
