Hello ,

Power On password is nothing but a hard drive lock password that comes up everytime you try booting the notebook. You have to enter it correctly in order to boot in or even to disable Power On password in BIOS.
You need to take it to the authorised service centre now where they will open up the laptop and CMOS battery (that stores the password) and reseat it. If you can then you can try it but i would suggest do not because the wirings are thin and delicate. Beleive me i have done it. Reseating the CMOS battery or replacing it is the only solution .

Regards ,

My built-in laptop speakers are not working on my Gateway M675 Notebook but when I plug my headphones in, I get very little sound out of them. I tried various different sound card drivers already and...

I have found that the wrong drivers will kill the sound, and yes they will conflict with your original sound driver. If this was a recent developement try the system restore to return original setting, not an option! consider reloading the operational system.
