    If start up we may need a model number to tell what the next step is. (some laptops may have a hidden button to clear)

    Hi there,



    Which password have you forgotten? Start Up? Or, Windows Login?

Unfortunately, removing the CMOS battery will not remove the password, as it is NVRAM (non-volatile), neither will shorting the CMOS jumpers. There are some programs that you can download that will flash the BIOS, and sometimes wiping the passwords stored. Do a google search for these, as you may need a particular one for your system.

Other than that, contact Gateway and ask them if they have a solution.

Sorry I can't be of more help

Cannot find any button switch for this. I understand that if you remove the CMOS battery for about 30 seconds, the bios will forget there was ever a password. Problem is the gateway site does not show in the online manual where the battery is or how to find it. I am afraid i can't provide any more than that. I am sorry.
