Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

4 Answers

I have a Gateway laptop M460ES. I reset my admin. password, and I guess I typed it wrong (or forgot what I put in). Couldn't get into it in safe mode. Tried to re-load windows xp-pro, but now I am getting a file missing error. Can I get a disc with windows xp-pro from you to restore my system?

    I thought I was contacting Gateway. When I went to Gateway support, I got your website. This is not much of a solution. Do you have a link to Gateway? I have Win XP-Pro dis, which I loaded, but the system won't start up. I get a file missing message, which I have no way to correct. If you can't do better than this, you should refund my 9.99 fee.

Sorry we don't supply these discs, you can look for such a disc on ebay for example or contact gateway directly, or you can buy the xp cd, or possibly borrow it from a friend or collegue.

    Use the Disc to perform a full, fresh install of windows instead of repairing.

    Forgot admin password cannot how to reset admin password gateway lt2104u


    Look on Ebay for a password reset disk. Many vendors on Ebay sell a bootable "linux" disk that you boot from and then you can edit your password file on Windows. I have versions for XP/ Vista.Windows 7.

    Be sure to get one that works for your version of windows. You must set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive first for this to work. About $5 to $10 for the reset disk.

    Asking for password before system. Boots


    Maybe you forgot the pass or some users put pass on your system or account..You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
    If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.
    The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route: Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2 Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
    Good luck!
    Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.


    You can reset a lost or "forgot Windows password" with 4 methods below:
    1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
    2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
    3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like "Windows Password Breaker".
    4. Re-install. Will lose data.
    goodluck and hope this helps.pls rate ..thanks

    Forgot password for my wireless router and i need to reload it again to connect my laptop


    Option-1:
    Resetting your wireless password
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Connect your router to your laptop through a ethernet cable.

    Open the router admin console in your browser:-
    Now browse to http://192.168.1.1.
    Enter admin/password or admin/admin to login to the admin console of router.
    There will be a link on the admin console for security and authentication. There you can find the password edit box where you can modify the password which you can now remember.
    You can additionally use a WPA / WEP key/paraphrase to protect your wireless network.

    Option-2:
    In worst case you can do the following. But this will loose all your old settings.
    --------------------------------------
    You can reset your router settings by pressign the reset button at the back side of your router using a paperclip for around 30 seconds. WARNING: This resets all your previous settings.

    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.
