Question about Gateway GT5012 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Gateway GT5012. When i turn on it on it goes straight to asking me a password. I never made a password for this. I cannot access my BIOS or rebooting options. And, it says after 3 tries that i need to look in the product guide, but nothing says anything about a password. Thanks

System=intel Celeron D W3507 When I turn it on it goes straight to a black screen asking for a system password I've tried every password I know but I can't get in please help


If you don't see windows, then it's a BIOS password, and you would know if you set one. Unplug it and hit the power button, then touch metal, and pull the battery out for ten minutes. After you put the battery back in the motherboard, and plug it in you need to hit delete at start and enter the BIOS to set the time and date, then move over to exit and save changes.

How did I reset my HDD password on my gateway M405?


When you first turn on your system there should be a message at the bottom for you to choose an "F" key to enter BIOS. When you push that "F" key and enter BIOS choose the tab that says system. When you do the USER, HDD and Admin password will pop up. Choose the HDD and click enter. IT will ask for a password, dont type anything just simply click enter, and when it asks to retype the password push enter again. What this does is let the BIOS know it is a "CLEAR" password and lets it know not to ask for one. After you do that choose the "F" key that allows you to exit and save. Your system will re boot and will no longer should ask for a password to your HDD.

Black enter password screen, but no password


I'm not sure if this will work but it may be that your system bios is asking for a password. If so, as you reboot the system, press F8 down until the system bios screen appears. Then page thru to see if the bios is asking for a system password. If so, you should be able to deactivate it thru the bios.

Hope this works.

PASSWORD PROBLEMS


Hi, To access or enter motherboard BIOS settings, on powerup either F2 or Del. If you just want to remove the password in your Dell Optiplex > The BIOS password may be cleared by removing the password jumper (PSWD) on the motherboard. This will also clear all CMOS settings: Open your casing, on your motherboard. find the CMOS password reset jumper (3-pin) on the motherboard; Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2 and put it on pins 2 and 3 for about 5 seconds. Replace back the jumper on pins 1 and 2. Hope this be of help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
