Question about Computers & Internet
I have a gateway laptop that all the sudden stopped loading up for me. when i turn it on it goes to a screen that says hard disk locked enter password but i have never made one then i put the boot cd in there and it acts like its gonna work and gives me error message F3E1000001 and all i can do is click ok to shut down. is there anything i can do? theres lots of important pics on there
Check with all your friends, as someone has enabled the boot password in your bios. Probably a prank, maybe malicious.
If you can find the CMOS battery (might have to take it apart) you could unplug it and remove all bios settings including the password.
