Question about Computers & Internet
Gateway nx500x laptop has hdd pw. I bought same second hand and now cannot use. I would like to know if there is some way I can bypass or reset a forgotten or lost hdd password
HDD password> Is that the same as a BIOS password? You can pull the MOBO battery or look for a tiny jumper that says CMOS, reset jumper to other position for a few seconds and replace to original position then boot up. If all else fails, there is a floppy boot disk you can make from the internet that will allow you to reset a login password, look up on Google.
