    Gateway login


    What sort of problem at log in >>?????
    Forgot password ?
    A "setup password" is a password that you must enter to log into a user account on your Gateway laptop.

    This can be beneficial if you have a number of people using the same computer and don't want just anyone having access to your personal files.

    But if you are the sole user of your Gateway laptop, then it can be more of a hindrance.
    As all Gateway laptop computers run a version of the Windows operating system, you can remove the setup password by accessing the Windows Control Panel.

    Click on the "Start" menu.


    Select the option that reads "Control Panel." If you're running Windows Vista or Windows 7, this will have its own listing in the "Start" menu.

    If you're running Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME or Windows XP, this will be found under the "Settings" sub menu.

    Double click on the icon that reads "User Accounts."
    Click on the name of the account that has a setup password that you want to remove.


    Click on the "Remove my Password" option.
    Enter your current password into the appropriately labeled box.


    Click the "Remove Password" option.
    Click "OK" to save your changes and exit the "User Accounts" utility.

    The setup password will have been removed from your account, and you will be no longer prompted to enter it when you boot up your computer.
    Unlock a Gateway Computer

    Getting locked out of your Gateway computer can be frustrating, especially when you have school or work deadlines.

    You can get locked out of your Gateway computer in cases where a password protected screensaver became corrupt, or if the you have set the default screensaver to use a screensaver that does not exist.

    Gateway computers come with Microsoft Windows XP and 2000, including the professional versions of both. Knowing how to unlock your a Gateway computer can save you time and irritation.

    Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your keyboard simultaneously to unlock your Gateway computer.


    Type the last logged-on user's login information and click "OK" if you see a locked computer message along with "Only domain/username or an administrator can unlock this computer." Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys once again when you see the Unlock Computer window disappear. Log on as usual. Method 2

    Shut down the locked Gateway computer by using the Microsoft Windows Resource Kit Shutdown tool.

    This tool shuts down and restarts a Windows 2000- or NT 4.0-based Gateway computer.
    Note the dialog box that comes up called System Shutdown.
    Wait for the shutdown timer to run out and see the Welcome to Windows box displayed on the screen.
    Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete," which unlocks the computer.
    Log onto your Gateway computer normally.
    Method 3: Backup, Modify and Restore the Registry

    Click "Start" and "Run," then type in the command below in the field box exactly as printed:
    %SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
    Click "Create a Restore Point," then click "Next" on the Welcome to System Restore page that appears.
    Type any name for the restore point, then click "Create" on the Create a Restore Point page. Click "Close" after creating the restore point.

    Perform this procedure before you make changes to the registry, just in case you make an error; otherwise, incorrect registry changes could create serious problems with your computer.
    Click "Yes" if you receive a prompt to turn on System Restore at this point.
    Clear the "Turn Off System Restore" check box by clicking on it, then click "OK," and repeat.
    Click "Start," then type "regedt32.exe" (without the quotes) in search field box to modify the registry and unlock the computer. Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
    Locate the scrnsave.exe value under the registry key below:
    HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop
    Click "String" on the Edit menu, type "logon.scr" (without the quotes), then click "OK."
    Look for the ScreenSaverIsSecure value, then click "String" on the Edit menu, type "0," then click "OK."
    Quit the Registry Editor
    Click "Start" and "Run," then type the command below exactly as printed to restore the registry, then click "OK":
    %SystemRoot%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe
    Click "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" on the Welcome to System Restore page, then click "Next."

    Note your computer may already be selected to restore to an earlier time--in this case, just click "Next."
    Click the system checkpoint on the Select a Restore Point page. Click "Guided Help (Registry Backup)," then click "Next" on the "On This List Select the Restore Point" area.

    Click "OK" if you see a System Restore message listing all the configuration changes it will make. Click "Next" when you come to the Confirm Restore Point Selection page.

    System Restore will now restore the Windows XP configuration you had at an earlier time, and then it will restart your Gateway computer.

    Log onto your computer as usual, and then click "OK" when you see the System Restore Confirmation page.

    Need to unlock gateway 7330GZ hdd


    So who put the password on it? 99% of the time if there is a Hard Drive Password and the person in possession of the laptop don't know the password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner put the password lock on the hard drive to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have set the password remotely once the laptop was stolen. Your system is toast. The only remedy is to get the original owner to remove the password.

    I bought a laptop online ,used&locked.how can i unlock


    Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 repeatedly while booting. Depending on how your system is setup you will either have to type administrator or just click on it. Most computers are setup with no password on the administrator account. After you type administrator or click on administrator press enter to logon without putting anything in the password field. If this does not work you could try a password reset program or a reload.
