    you may end up formatting

    DO you mean windows login password



    if you mean bios password immediately after turning pc on

    go into bios setup and for passwords i believe under advanced you can disable a user password for bios but if this has been setup as supervisor password i don't think you can just disable it.When done press F10 to save and exit

    Let me know if this helped

    otherwise if your child can't remember password you'll need to format

Vista or xp? vista has a hidden Admin account you can try to use. XP requires an external SW or original windows CD.

    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.

    Forgot my bios password is stoping me from get to my f2 setup settings


    Did you try PASSWORD as your password. If this doesn't work and you have common knowledge of the inside of a computer, remove the CMOS Battery ( common 2032 watch battery) for a few minutes this will reset the the motherboard and the BIOS. but if this is any type of IBM or Lenovo you may have to call the manufacturer to resolve this problem

    Turn laptop off, unplug power and battery, use a screw driver to get back plate off. Then unplug the CMOS battery. Put battery back in, turn laptop on. Turn laptop off. Plug cmos battery back in. Put battery back in and when you turn laptop back on again password should have reset :)

    I forgot my gateway model ML6230 bios password, i need a new password for it (reset the password).


    A method you can try if you don't have a password reset software is by removing the CMOS battery. Remove the CMOS battery then turn the computer on. The system BIOS will be reset and password will be removed. Then you can put the battery back in. Click on this link for the Gateway ML6230 Notebook PC Manual. Check page 36 for CMOS battery removal instructions.

    Yes of course all Laptop and Desktop have CMOS battery. Screw the back cover of your laptop locate the CMOS battery and remove to clear the BIOS password. Or else you can reset the CMOS by removing the jamper.
