Re: Require bios password
IBM BIOS power on password, hard disk password are stored on an EEPROM chip and is almost impossible to crack. There are no backdoor passwords available.
These password protection are set to stop unauthorised access to data on the laptop, also moving the hard disk to another computer to read the data off the hard disk will not work either.
There is a way to hack into the EEPROM, but requires electronic hardware skills to build a reader device, a working computer and software.

Sounds like the GPU on your computer is having some issues. You might need to clean up the dust in your computer, as well as have the GPU's plug tightened on your laptop. If that's not the case you might have a nasty virus. Either way, it will require some work by someone with a technical background in laptops.
Well, sorry to hear about that. It is usually advised to keep the ac adapter plugged in for continouos power supply while performing BIOS update. Reason beyond is that, sudden power interruption or power shortage can totally damage your computer, allowing you not to use your computer anymore.
Please contact your laptop manufacturer for further assistance.
The only way to reset the cmos battery is to remove the battery from the back, open the bottom of the laptop and remove the button battery for 3-5 minutes. Replug in the battery and close up the case. Once completed, you can then create a new password.
User passwords: Power on BIOS execution can be controlled by a Power On Password. This password is set in the BIOS Configuration screen, accessed by pressing the F1 key after pressing the power on switch to turn on the PC. If the person at the keyboard does not know the Power On Password, then BIOS execution halts.
Hard drive The hard drive is controlled by the Hard Drive Password. After the Power On Password is entered, the person at the keyboard must be able to enter the Hard Drive Password, otherwise the disk drive will not spin up for use. Like the Power On Password, the Hard Drive Password is set in the BIOS configuration screen.
Administrative passwords: Each of the two user passwords can be controlled by a Master or administrative password. If the administrative password is not set, then anyone who knows the user password can change it in the BIOS configuration screen. If the administration password is set, then it is impossible to reset the user password unless you know the administrative password. The Supervisor Password is the administrative password for the Power On Password. The Master Hard Drive Password controls the Hard Drive Password.

Every laptop has a different configuration and hardware setup so knowing what your brand and model is helps. Unless your computer is part of corporate inventory there is no reason to set a bios password. Check ebay for bios password as there are store fronts that can help you unlock it for a fee. Some places require you to send the machine in as it can be complicated to reset this security feature. If you want security then buy a notebook lock and put a power on, user and screen saver password but never enable a bios password.
u may need to "FLASH" BIOS with a new firmware/software that goes into the BIOS chip, that will require a hardware engineer to do, else to reset BIOS you can try removing the COMS battery from the Motherboard and reinstalling it after 2 - 3 hrs, also in that time keep pressing the power switch of you PC for few minutes without the power supply and without the power cable attached to the PC.
How long since you've run the computer? Might it be processing and update like when it reboots after installing a service pack? That might be making the computer run slow for a few minutes. Give it a little time to get started and see if your mouse and keyboard begin to work.
You will have to contact Gateway (or the manufacturer of the laptop) and ask them what you need to do to remove the bios password. Without an exact model number no one here can provide you with a 3rd party solution.
Most laptops made in the last few years require you to send the laptop back to the manufacturer and provide proof you are the origional owner of the laptop to remove a BIOS password as many BIOS passwords set up to prevent data theft.
Some laptops are passworded default at'oooo' or 'ooooo'.
The bios re-set is the 'JBAT1' terminal, from jumpers 1-2 to 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to 1-2 again, but where the terminal is exactly on your motherboard i do not know.
You may also try removing the bios didc shaped battery for 15 minutes or so, then replacing.
