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.

    I have a Compaq desktop PC , model no. " (AK)

    you will have to google the make/model. I recommend you use Gateway instead of compaq as only gateway results show if the model-only is googled. I don't believe that is a compaq, nor does it follow their normal 'naming' schema.

    Once you locate the manual you will search it for the BIOS password reset instructions. That model may also have the Hard drive locked, once you are able to enter the BIOS you can follow the manual's instructions to look-for, and if found, clear any Hard drive password.

    Note: Clearing the BIOS passwords will have no effect on any Operating System password on your User Account, (if any.)

    When I turn the system on it shows the "GATEWAY" logo. Then goes to another screen and says "enter password" but I forgot the password.

    If this is a BIOS password, you'll need to open up the tower and look for a jumper that says 'reset bios' or 'reset CMOS'. Move the jumper to the other pins and turn the computer on. NOTE: check to make sure your model needs to be turned on or not. When it beeps, turn it off. Then move the jumper back to its original position and start normally. Hope this helps.

    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.

    restart in safe mode, log in as the administrator, and reset your password from there. Disabling it first from the administrator tends to work best. Best of Luck!

    Changed password recently but have now forgotten it. I didn't answer security question when I changed password. How do I change password now on Gateway ML6230?

    You cannot access without a password. Software is made to correct it but its expensive. I would call your local pc shop and see if they can do it for you. It only takes a min or two.
