In the bios of a gateway laptop there is an option to password protect the hdd. This has been done to a laptop i purchased on ebay. I could care less what is on the disk that came with the laptop, but it has a password and it is preventing me from formatting the drive and reinstalling the os. I need to remove this password and wipe the drive. It can be done all at once for all i care so long as a new os will go down when Im done. any suggestions?
