Simplest is to remove the battery for a while so the password is lost.

    And how do you remove a forgotten password from an ecryption software called Folder Lock by newsoftwares.net? It's nearly 5 years since I encrypted my files, photos, documents and folders in an external Western Digital drive and then i added Folder Lock to protect the data but after a couple of years, I couldn't remember the password nor recall where I wrote it. And so, my files are doomed, unless there is another options I can recover my files back and to hell with Folder Lock. Too risky.

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.

Cmospwd does not work in resetting the HDD (BIOS?) pwd for a Gateway Solo 1450 with a Phoenix 4.5 Bios. I cannot get into DOS without the password. I have also tried all the backdoor passwords and they do...


u may need to "FLASH" BIOS with a new firmware/software that goes into the BIOS chip, that will require a hardware engineer to do, else to reset BIOS you can try removing the COMS battery from the Motherboard and reinstalling it after 2 - 3 hrs, also in that time keep pressing the power switch of you PC for few minutes without the power supply and without the power cable attached to the PC.

Lost Bios Password for Gateway Solo 1450. I have removed the CMOS battery for 5 min; that didn't work. Removed it again for an hour and that didn't work! I have tried all the back door pwds for the Phoenix...


From my experience there is no way to retrieve or remove a unknown hard drive (HDD) password. The bios passwords and windows passwords are no problem to remove, but the HDD password cannot be removed. Only option I know is to replace the hard drive. I have done this on about a dozen PC's
