Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

Bought gov surplus gateway e4650 seriel #0026503324 and it asked for password as soon as i turned it on. can't find jumper or password


Answers :

Look on your motherboard around the area of your coin battery. (round shiny silver job about the size of a quarter) There are three pins in a row with the jumper on the 2&3 position. And if you have good eyes, you may see password written on the motherboard.
Once you locate them place the jumper in the 1&2 position, I like to reboot at that point and then replace the jumper on the 2&3 position again.
Also there are BIOS backdoor password available from the manufacturer of the board. try the reset first and if you need more help, just indicate it.
