Question about Hitachi Travelstar 80 GB Hard Drive

Locked 80Gb HDD

I have an 80Gb HDD that's got a lock on it that came out of a Gateway M275, and I was wondering if I just put it into a different laptop and ran a DBAN on it if it would erase and unlock it? I need to format it for a different comuter anyway

When I turn on M275 I get power light, hard drive


I have the same M275 tablet and was looking for a solution when I came across your post. I couldn't find a solution so I went over every nook and cranny of my tablet and found my hard drive was not completely pushed in. I pushed it in tried the power button again and it worked! I am shocked because my laptop has been down for a year now. I thought maybe it was a motherboard problem and it was junk. I'm so excited. Anyway all I can suggest is check that the hard drive on the right side is completely plugged/pushed in. I hope that works for you.

I want to use a 80gb hdd out a xbox ,for my comp


The xbox uses a different filesystem than a PC. If you just want to add the hdd to your pc, you will need to format the hard drive so that it uses a filesystem the pc can recognize. For a windows XP/Vista system, this gemerally means NTFS filesystem. Keep in mind that this will destroy all existing data on that hard drive such as games and saves, so be sure that's what you want to do. You should be able to format the hdd from Administrative tools -> Computer management -> disk management and search for disk 1 or something similar. Take care not to format the disk holding your C: partition.

Where can i download sofware of gateway


For your tablet to function again, you'll need the WACOM tablet driver which is NOT provided by Gateway, since they do not manufacture the tablet themselves.

You'll need the following drivers from the GATEWAY site to fix your button issue:

9524572.exe - Gateway M275 Button driver, version 5.01.2600.2156

and from the WACOM site you'll need the Tablet PC driver.
-Go to www.Wacom.com
-Select your location and language on the right
-On the next page, choose downloads from the top navigation bar
-In Step 1 scroll down and pick Tablet PC
-In Step 2 choose your operating system
-Follow the download instructions provided on the site from there
