I am assuming this is a BIOS password.

Inside your case on the motherboard there should be a password reset jumper. You may have to search for it. If you have documentation on your system, it may help. You can also get help from Gateway support for your specific model and motherboard.

You normally have to move the jumper from pins 1 & 2, to pins 2 & 3 and reboot. You should get a message that the password has been cleared. Shut down, move the jumper back to its original position and reboot.

Hdd pasword for gateway mt6451


There is no way to get around a hard drive password as the password is not in the BIOS it is stored on the control board for the hard drive itself.

The only option is to send it off the a Data Recovery company.

Cant boot


In your bios you should be able to change your settings for the hdd. Make sure everything in bios matches your hdd & then save changes & reboot. Hopefully that will allow you to enter windows.
