BIOS, which stands for Basic Input Output System, is the most low-level operating system on your computer.

BIOS is responsible for automatically performing a number of tasks, such as setting the clock speed of your computer's processor and determining the timings of your computer's memory.

Resetting a BIOS password on your Gateway computer can be accomplished in multiple ways, so choose the one that best fits your situation.

· 1
Navigate to xs4all.nl and attempt to use the master passwords contained therein (see below). http://www.xs4all.nl/~matrix/mpwlist.html

These are BIOS passwords built into the system that can be used by technicians and other service personnel when working on an otherwise locked computer.
·2
Contact Gateway and speak to a customer service representative about obtaining a master password for your particular model if none of the passwords in Step 1 work (see below).
http://support.gateway.com/support/contact/chat.shtml

·3

Open your computer case using a Phillips screwdriver (or no screwdriver at all if you have a case that supports screwless entry).

Look in your operating manual for the location of the BIOS chip on the motherboard.
Remove this chip by gently wedging the screwdriver beneath it and prying it off the motherboard.
·4

Wait five minutes and place the chip back into position on the motherboard.
This will reset the memory, removing the password and allowing you access to your computer.

Black screen blue box saying


some one must have put in a boot password to your laptop,
follow this:
When booting up, enter your BIOS setup (usually by pressing the F2 key at the appropriate time).

Locate the BIOS Password section and turn the ON STARTUP password to off. There is no standard setup for BIOS, so I can't give you exact instructions.

If this does not work, try:
remove cell & start your pc you will here beep...beep...beep...

then turn off your pc & restore your cell.Start your pc and
password is removed.

there is a battery on motherboard,a button cell,you can try removing that and start computer, then put it back, bios settings will be lost.
you can also try removing any hardware like ram,if you have two,when system is off,turn on , it will prompt for changes , enter bios and try remove password.

If you know the bios password, then change it in the bios menu,if you don''t know the bios password, then clearing the cmos battery should work. You will need to disemble your netbook apart until you can get to the motherboard, there you should see a baterry of a nickel size and take it out and back it, resemble your netbook and you should be good to go.

How can i remove acer emachine netbook bios password?


Do you know the bios password???? If you do, you can go into the bios menu and make changes there by entering the password, and then just enter blank when asked for new password/and confirmation. If you don't know the password, what you need to do is reset the bios to oringinal default setting. In this step, you will need to take your netbook apart by unscrewing the screws on the back of the laptop and disembling the netbook. You will need to locate the cmos battery, in this case is about the size of a dime, or nickel. You will need to take this battery out for at least 15sec, and reinserting it back. Put your laptop back togheter and startup the netbook. It will prompt you of a fail cmos, and load default is loaded. You should be good to go.
