Question about Gateway (4000484) Motherboard
Somehow, the motherboard thinks that a "start-up" password is required.
If you have a desktop computer, turn the computer off, open the case, and look on the motherboard. Look for three pins (labelled 1, 2, and 3), and look for a small "jumper" that is connecting pin 1 to pin 2. Move the jumper to connect pin 2 to pin 3. Wait 5 seconds.
Move the jumper back to connect pin 1 to pin 2.
Turn the computer on -- the "BIOS-password" will have been removed.
