Method.

When your Gateway computer is switched off, it still keeps track of various system information such as the date and time, thanks to a small battery that never powers off. The size and thickness of a dime, the CMOS battery can run out and need to be replaced. You can swap out a dead CMOS battery with a new one by removing the Gateway computer's side access panel.

Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips-head screwdriver

  • CMOS battery replacement

  1. 1

    Shut down the computer. Remove the power cable from the back of the computer case. Disconnect the cables for the monitor, mouse, keyboard, and printer.

  2. 2

    Set the computer case over on its side. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two case screws at the far left end of the case.

  3. 3

    Slide the side access panel to the left and remove it from the computer case. Find the CMOS battery port, which will be located to the lower left of the processor in most Gateway computer models.

  4. 4

    Lift up the plastic clip holding the CMOS battery in place. Slide a fingernail under one side of the battery and lift it off the motherboard port.

  5. 5

    Check the orientation of the new battery and compare it to the CMOS motherboard port. Push the new battery into place in the same direction that the old battery was facing. Push down the plastic clip.

  6. 6

    Set the side access panel back onto the Gateway computer case and reattach the case screws. Plug in the Gateway computer and power it on.

remove the battery get some isopropyl alcohol and qtips and clean the contacts where the battery actually connects to the pc, if that doesn't work it's possible that the IC inside the battery has gone to hell and if that's the case you'll need to purchase another battery.

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.

Just got this used gateway 4025gz from a friend. i didnt have anything better so I put vista on it to clean it out and it runs fine but I cant get any sound. Drivers say they are up to date and everything...


Go to devise manager (Type Device manager on search box) and then remove/ uninstall the sound driver. Restart the laptop. Then it should work. If the same problem still there, Right click on sound driver and select update driver.

Solo 9559 can not pass the initial screen


it may be the bios.... remove the bios battery for at least ten minutes... make sure the main battery is removed
so there is NO power to the laptop for about ten minutes
.... after you reinstall the bios battery and put the main battery back in and plug in the external power.... boot it up again.
