Which password are you referring to is it the user's log-in password or the systems password?

for systems password >> remove the casing of your desktop, locate the CMOS battery cell (it's like a silver coin) you can try to look for the jumper or just remove the battery cell and wait for about 10 seconds or so then place it back (take note of the polarity + and - ).close the casing and start your pc.

for user's log-in password >> turn on your pc and press f8 during boot, select 'safe mode'
then select 'administrator account and leave the password box empty. you should be able to log-in to windows in safe mode. then go to control panel / user's account and change the password of your account from there.

hope this helps!

    Bios password

    A laptop BIOS password is more secure than a traditional desktop to help protect the data if it was stolen. If you are the original owner of the laptop, we highly recommend contacting the manufacturer of the laptop. Companies such as Dell, Lenovo, and Toshiba can reset the password if you are the original owner using the Service Tag, disk, or give you exact steps for your laptop. Gateway is owned by Dell so they should be able to assist you better with this issue.

    Gateway laptop forgotten password operated by Windows Vista

    Dear snmo7

    You May be able to reset or turn off the password using your bios settings in dos mode.

    To access your bios settings ,turn on your Laptop & hit the delete key repeatedly untill the bios settings menu is displayed.

    Use the <-- --> arrow keys to scroll through menus and locate the Password options . You should have the option of reset/enable/disable the system/supervisor passwords..
    Exit Bios saving the changes..

    Gateway Notebook NT3707- forgotten password operated by Windows Vista

    the is only one solution, you have to have a program that will unlock the computer, I use a probuct here in my shop called Spotmau, that unlocks passwords, there is another method u might try first before you take it to a shop to unlock it, in the password dialog box type in the top admin, and in the password line type owner, that is the way gateway set their systems up to unlock the passwords when forgotten.

    any further assistance you can send me a personal message and i will respond as soon as I get, I'll be glad to help in anyway I can.
