Lost HDD Password To Gateway Solo 5150

Forgot my HDD password to my Gateway Solo 5150 laptop. I can't get to the Bios Utility without it.  The F2 setup key brings me to the HDD password screen.  How can I get to the operating system or safemode without the password.  I no longer have the recovery cd and the operating system won't power up from the CD.

First log into the bios and set the time/date if that doesnt fix the password try logging into it in safemode and going into the control panel and removing the password from the user accounts.
