You wont have any dips switches on this one...the battery should look like a quarter, and the cmos jumper(and the battery) are usually close to where the main power plug attaches

    Bio's Password reset for gateway 98 desktop


    BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

    1. using software 2. using hardware.

    1. Software removal method - Here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

    !BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
    You can download it here:
    http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

    CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
    http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

    You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.


    2. Hardware Removal method :
    - First you need to open the case.
    - Then find the cmos battery (It will look like a nickel sized silver disk located on the motherboard).
    - Remove the cmos battery for 30 seconds and then put it back in. You may have to tweak the bios settings afterward, but the password will be gone.

    Good Luck!

    DG31PR backdoor bios password


    You can't. you need to read your manual, locate the cmos reset jumper, and open the case. There is no such thing as bios reset software as it's at the hardware level that bios operates.

    Bios password forgotten, how can I reset password?


    To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

    In case of your Gateway laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

    Unable to change bios settings


    are you sure your are exiting the bios saving your changes?
    if for some reason you are unable to save your changes it is possible that the cmos battery is going bad, replace the battery and test.

    another reason why you may not be able to make any changes is because you may not be a supervisor or accessing the bios as a supervisor but as a user. you may have set a bios supervisor password. if you don't remember what that was you may have to reset the password:

    to reset your password do the following:

    1. Turn off the computer.
    2. Open the computer case.
    3. Locate the blue J8C2 Flash/PWD jumper block on the motherboard.
    4. Place the jumper on pins 2 and 3 for clearing the passwords.
    5. Turn on the computer. Wait for an audible beep from the computer. A message appears stating that the NVRAM and password have been cleared.
    6. Turn off the computer.
    7. Place the jumper back on pins 1 and 2 for normal operation.
    8. Place the lid back on the case.
    9. Turn on the computer.
    good luck!

    Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
    It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
    then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
    Then it not want password.

    And if u tell about windows password
    Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user password

    then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
    But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.
