Hold down ALT Gr or Alt Car and tap the F10 when the system turns on , you will get recovery console , select restore system to factory defaults ,
if system is booting into windows go to Start Menu - All Programs- Gateway - Recovery manager - restore - restore system to factory defaults ,
this will wipe all the documents , pictures everything in the system

Forgot admin password cannot how to reset admin password gateway lt2104u

Look on Ebay for a password reset disk. Many vendors on Ebay sell a bootable "linux" disk that you boot from and then you can edit your password file on Windows. I have versions for XP/ Vista.Windows 7.

Be sure to get one that works for your version of windows. You must set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive first for this to work. About $5 to $10 for the reset disk.

Netbook reset


Here is how to restore any Acer or Gateway machine to factory settings:

When you power the netbook on, as soon as you see the Acer logo, hold the Alt key down and start tapping the F10 key repeatedly (takes about 10 seconds to trigger the restore process. It may take a few tries to get the timing right but I promise you this is the way.

The hard drive on your netbook has a hidden restore partition which contains the necessary files to do the factory restore. It is possible that this partition was erased when Ubuntu was installed. If you can't get the Alt+F10 to work, then you will have to contact Acer to get a recovery USB drive.

Hope this helps!

Factory reset LT4010u gateway netbook

You press the F11 key at start up and you should be presented with the Gateway System Recovery option. That will allow you to restore your computer to it's originally installed state.

If this is because of a bios password...
Please contact Gateway, I do not assist in helping to bypass security features.

How can i unlock my gateway netbook? its asking for a username and password after i reset it

Have you tried a boot up disk? Re-setting your CMOS by hitting a special key as soon as you turn it on? Also try hitting the F-8 key after turning it on for a menu that may help.

Cant find the fn button on my netbook LT21 series its a gateway

The fn button on my gateway is the last button on the left in the first row. You should have gotten a diagram with your netbook. Please look at it, it may be in your manual.
