Re: Gateway Laptop bios password?

see if u can do a cmos reset - try a dos cmos wipe utility,
or see if you can find a cmos reset jumper, move it for 10 secs and put it back where it was
or open the laptop and remove the backup battery (along with the system battery) for a while then replace it

If its anything like my old laptop, then you couldn't boot anything without the password. If that is the case, then you would need to remove the battery or jumper.

You'll need to either remove the battery that powers the CMOS or see if there's a jumper that will reset everything. Try searching for a manual for your laptop, there might be some info on how to do it. Or you could just take it apart and look for the battery
