|The motherboard on my Gateway LT3103u laptop went out due to a power surge. I have HDD Password set, and putting HDD in other computer did not recognize my password. After trying every option I could, I purchased a replacement motherboard because I was told that the HDD controller on the motherboard had to be the same for this to unlock (Gateway support said this). The password is still not working. I am getting the following error after 3 failed password attempts. "Hdd password error code "|
I must retrieve this data, but cost of data recovery service is prohibitive. can anyone help?
