Hi and Welcome![QUOTE=DARLEEN;2550680]how can i recover my hdd password for my gateway?[/QUOTE]The HDD password is set in the computer’s Bios. So enter the Bios and navigate to the section where the password is set. Then enter your HDD password and replace it with an empty one. For details, please read the manual.
Your only other option is to contact your computer manufacturer’s technical support for assistance.
