This conversation is currently closed to new comments. Then save the changes as you exit the BIOS and see if it boots now. If it doesn’t post back with what is happening. HI I am having the same exact problem as you replied to above. My Gateway is old, I think I purchased it in I haven’t used it in a couple years, I would just like to get everything off of it.
If I hold F2 it does nothing. I would really appreciate any help you can give me.
HDD light is on as well as power light. Is there any known issues that are fixable here? Ended up finding a little USB camera card inserted that caused the system to freeze. I have purchased USED laptops at flea markets before, and the encryption bios password and HD password is done when the company ORDERS the laptop from the manufacturer, thus making it impossible for data to be retrieved or stolen gatdway the computer if it’s stolen. That being saaid, the HD password from everything I have read is almost impossible to get rid of, I have gatteway to change w340yi hard drive and reset the BIOS on many of these computersand its a deal that it was originally stolen from the company or bought legitimately at an auction.
AND of course there are hundreds of companies that say they will clear the password on the hard drive, using probably a similar software that is available as freeware on most tech sites and the hiren’s gxteway boot CD, the ultimate boot CD, and others.
This gives me access to the computer and a shell of dos or any other program. This usually gets me smarmy holier- than-tho answers from techs that the laptop is probably stolen, when in fact the whole world is filled with laptops now from companies that discarded them that have this type of encryption, I mean, in reality; they COULD in fact be hateway but more likely sold at auction or “aquired” somehow by someone who knew someone at the company; thus gatewxy a perfectly good laptop appear useless once it leaves the company.
I for one dont believe this, I think there is a way around both problems, but welcome any answers from techs gaeway additudes The politics of repairing and helping people with used computers is never pointed out by tech people, and they usually have no w340uo what it is like to live in the real world, where we have w40ui ton of used and obsolete jink that gets traded every day I see something broke I want to fix it I want to fix the laptop I agree with this post- remove laptop battery, disconnect cmos battery and that should manuao the bios.
If you are still having issues you need to disconnect the HD and restart the comp so it forces the bios to load. From there you can reset the bios to your chosen settings.
Removing the CMOS battery for at least 10 minutes Overloading the keyboard buffer Using a professional service Please remember that most BIOS passwords do not protect the hard drive, so if you need to recover the data, simply remove the hard drive and install it in an identical system, or configure gateaay as a slave drive in an existing system. The exception to this are laptops, especially IBM Thinkpads, which silently lock the hard drive if the supervisor password is enabled.
If the supervisor password is reset without resetting the and hard drive as well, you will be unable to access the data on the drive.
These passwords are case gatewway, so you may wish to try a variety of combinations. Laptops typically have better BIOS security than desktop systems, and we are not aware of any backdoor passwords that will work with name brand laptops. Some BIOS configurations will lock you out of the system completely if you type in an incorrect password more than 3 times.
If your PC maunal locked with a BIOS administrator password that will not allow access to the floppy drive, these utilities may not work. Also, since these utilities do not come from the manufacturer, use them cautiously and at your own risk.
Cmos password recovery tools 3. On laptop computers, the dipswitches are usually found under the keyboard or within a compartment at the bottom of the laptop.
Please remember to unplug your PC and use a grounding gareway before reaching into your PC and touching the motherboard. Once you locate and rest the jumper switches, turn the computer on and check if the password has fateway cleared. If it has, turn the computer off and return the jumpers or dipswitches to its original position.
It looks like a small watch battery.
If you gatewzy the PC and remove the battery for minutes, the CMOS may reset itself and the password should be blank. Along with w340iu other machine specific settings, so be sure you are familiar with manually reconfiguring the BIOS settings before you do this.
Some manufacturers janual the power to the CMOS chipset by using a capacitor, so if your first attempt fails, gatewau the battery out with the system unplugged for at least 24 hours. Some batteries are actually soldered onto the motherboard making this task more difficult. Unsoldering the battery incorrectly may damage your motherboard and other components, so please don’t attempt this if you are inexperienced. Another option may be to remove the CMOS chip from the motherboard for a period of time.
If you reset the BIOS password, but cannot reset the hard drive password, you may not be able to access the drive and it will remain locked, even if you place it in a new laptop. IBM Thinkpads have special jumper switches on the motherboard, and these should be used to reset the system.
i forgot my admistor password on my gateway w340ui how do i reset it or do a complete recovery?
Overloading the KeyBoard Buffer On some older computer systems, you can force the CMOS to enter its setup screen on boot by overloading the keyboard buffer.
This can be done by booting with the keyboard gzteway mouse unattached to the systems, or on some systems by hitting the ESC key over times in rapid succession. There are too many chipsets to do a breakdown of which points to jump on individual chipsets, and the location of these solder beads can vary by manufacturer, so please check your computer and motherboard documentation for details. This technique is not recommended for the inexperienced and should be only be used as a “last ditch” effort.
How to Reset a Gateway Laptop (with Pictures) – wikiHow
Using a professional service If the manufacturer of the laptop or desktop PC can’t or won’t reset the BIOS password, you still have the option of using a professional service.
For most of these services, you’ll need to provide some type of hateway proof of ownership. This may be difficult if you’ve acquired the computer second hand or from an online auction. If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics amnual to the problem. Also please exercise your best judgment when posting in the forums–revealing personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, and address is not recommended.
I went online gateeway another computer and found instructions for a hard reboot I think. Basically, I unplugged it from its power source and battery, pressed the on button for about 30 seconds, then started the computer with just power, shut it down, inserted the battery, then restarted. It does nothing when I press either of these.

I will admit that I am rather a novice when it comes to tech support so if someone could help me out in the simplest terms possible, I would appreciate it. Depends on how old this computer is.
