Question about Gateway NV5215u Notebook
I'm sure you don't want to hear this but:
Hard drive passwords can only be removed by professional services companies. It is usually cheaper to buy a new hard drive. This is of course by design.
You might try calling Gateway and see if they have a procedure for dealing with this problem, but I would expect that the hard drive is not recoverable.
Thanks for using FixYa.
