Question about Gateway LT Series LT4010U Intel Atom N2600 X2 1.6GHz 1GB 320GB 10
When I start the netbook it asks for the bios password which i don't know, how can I remove this password?
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
