Power up your computer
start lightly tapping F8
It should bring up a menu, if not power down and try again
At the menu, choose SAFE MODE
Once the login screen displays, choose ADMINISTRATOR ( if that isn't an option, see below)

Hopefully, it logs you in, if it does;
click START
click RUN
Highlight your username and click RESET PASSWORD button.
Type in your new password twice, reboot and tada!

Bought a gateway laptop fm pawnshop already locked. Need a code to unlock

The pawnshop should have the code as they bought the item. If they do a simple phone call should get you the information you need.
If they do not have the code report them for bad business as the laptop may have been stolen. (Why else would they not have access to the code?) Even if it was bought legit they sold it to you without a code to access you item. (Your not going to buy a locked safe are you?)
The only way I know to get past a locked computer is to reinstall the OS (Most likely Windows)
This is complicated and should only be done by someone who know how. There may bve other ways but I am not aware of them. Good Luck, and call that pawn shop!!!

I purchased a laptop at a local pawnshop and it has the harddisk security primary master wdc wd1600bevt screen. how do i crack the password?

Several different types of password encryption methods.

First, remove the watch-type battery for several minutes. This resets the bios and may fix the problem. (Some desktops have reset pins that need to be jumped...maybe so with your laptop.)

Operating system password require password recovery software. Some reset the password, others delete all passwords. look for ophcrack.

Ught laptop at pawnshop,now I can't get it to log in.

Assuming you have never used a password on the computer, deleting the user name and leaving both fields blank will work. Failing that, there are utilities available to reset the password on Windows systems, post again with the operating system you are using.
