Hi!! Usually GATEWAY passwords are storedin eeprom memories that has to be read or writen to remove / bypass the BIOS password!!! Password generate a hash code that will appear after 3 wrong password attempts and it has a 5 digit decimal format "xxxxx" You can get the hash code by pressing F2 or F10 when you turn on the laptop to enter Bios and then when password prompt appears hit F12 to get the hash code. I got My Gateway Bios password Unlocked at http://www.laptoprebirth.com They can calculate a master password with the hash code. Hope it helps

After reading the BIOS software, my Gateway CX200X gives the message: MBR error. what is this?


MBR stands for Master Boot Record. It is an essential piece of information written on the Hard Drive that allows the program to load. If the MBR is corrupted the computer boot process cannot proceed.
You have to repair it.
On old systems with a floppy drive you would get a Win98 boot disk on a floppy, boot the system using the A:drive (floppy) then use a DOS command to refresh the Master Boot Record.
If your system is using Windows XP tablet PC edition you might be able to use the installation disk to boot to the recovery console and use the command FIXBOOT or FIXMBR. You can also reinstall the Operating System.
I hope this answer gave you some starting point to investigate further. There are on the web some software vendors who sell system recuperation CDs. Some may be free other you have to buy.

My computer says no operating system


Check your BIOS to see if it's trying to boot to the floppy drive, or CD instead of the hard drive.

Try to boot to CD and see if it runs.

If you can get to CD, reinstall Windows and choose Repair, which will only copy the operating system files, and leave your data files intact.

If all of that doesn't work you may have had a hardware problem with the controller, RAM problem, power surge, or file corruption from any of those, or from a virus. In the end, the last extreme is to do a reformat and reinstall with fresh Windows and start adding your programs back on, one at a time.

Remember to keep your essential data backed up... at least once a quarter if you can! 8^)

Good luck!

I bought this computer at a garage sale and it is set up to log on by pressing ctl,alt,delet but I don't have the password is there any way around this


Try this:At startup, before you get the Windows splash screen,hit the F8 key to see if you can start in safe mode. If you can, the password for administrator may not have been set, in which case you can log on without entering one.Otherwise, you'll have to do a reinstall of Windows or, when starting the reinstall, when the computer says it's loading drivers, etc, you can press CTRL F10 and that should get you to the screen where you can see the passwords.

Set up did not find any hard disk drivers installed on computer


Your notebook has SATA hdd. Got into the bios (keep pressing F2 key on startup) then in the bios screen find HDD and press enter. Select IDE mode. Press f10 to save changes and exit. When this is done install XP.
Alternatively connect external usb floppy drive and unzip sata drivers into that. When booting from xp cd press f6 to load drivers.Follow onscreen instructions to load drivers and continue xp installation.
Please let me know if issue not solved for futher ts steps.
thanx
