    Please clarify.Are you sure it is notit asking you to assign a password? When you reset a battery on the motherboard, it usually does not prompt you for a password, because Bios has been cleared of all assigned passwords. It will ask you for other info such as time and date and sometimes other info, but usually not a password after you reset the battery. At leas this has been my experience.

You can remove that BIOS battery and you must to insert new one of battery BIOS. Usually you can use CR2032 battery. You can buy in eletronic shop. And now, you can enter your BIOS and set them all.
Oh yeah, definitely there is three password in computer from BIOS.
One, come from BIOS password, if you want to enter and make a setting for BIOS;
Two, come from Harddisc password, if you give a password to your HDD;
Three, come from operating system, like a Windows, Linux, ...etc.
Where is password for your question?

Reboot problems


Hi Dear,
The problem you discussed is hardware related, IT has to do with the cmos battery or the Sata cable.

Disconnect/Connect CMOS battery and reconfigure BIOS settings again based on defaults
- Replace "ALL" SATA Cables and reconnect all drives

Bio's Password reset for gateway 98 desktop


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

1. Software removal method - Here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html&act=down

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.


2. Hardware Removal method :
- First you need to open the case.
- Then find the cmos battery (It will look like a nickel sized silver disk located on the motherboard).
- Remove the cmos battery for 30 seconds and then put it back in. You may have to tweak the bios settings afterward, but the password will be gone.

Good Luck!

Gateway pentium 3 boots to where it displays cdrom drive infromation then it pops up a blue window asking for a pass code. What is the code it requests or cause of problem?


Sounds like a bios password thats only thing it can be pre-boot screen. If its a desktop you can dislodge the bios battery for about 3 minutes if its a laptop your kinda screwed. If you can prove ownership of the laptop then maybe Gateway has a master password work around.

I was just given a gateway laptop but it has a password an the orignal owner dont remember the password. Is there away to get pass the admin page to change the password?


drain the power of BiOS,from the back up battery inside your LAPTOP!
By disconnecting the battery(inside) and wait for a couple of minutes, BiOS will erase the PASSWORD!

My neighbor gets a message when he boots up saying to "enter CURRENT password" It happens so fast I can't even get into the BIOS. It's on a black screen with white letters. It will only let you type in 7...


You should remove the BIOS battery inside of the machine and also remove the power and wait for a 15 min.
Then put the battery in it's place and turn your machine on.

When you remove the BIOS battery, the settings of Bios will set in Default mode so the boot password and Bios Password will be removed.

Gateway login screen


Restart the laptop, hit F8 repeatadly to start in safe mode. This will bypass XP's login screen. You can then manipulate the password in the control panel. Also, you can change it by going to commandprompt2.gif, type: net user * (your username) then whatever password you want.
