Having problems with your Gateway MX8734 Notebook ?
I have inherited a gateway laptop with vista ultimate. Unfortunatly, nobody has any idea what the password is. I have a password recovery disk, but the player starts to read it then stops. They are looking for any of the disks that may have come with it, but it doesn't look as though they will locate them. Is there any other way to bypass or reset password?? i can't get past the welcome screen, and there is no admin account visible.
You can call Gateway and see if they can provide you with an OEM Operating system disc and use that to reinstall the operating system. If not, then you can purchase a new copy of Windows and install it. There are programs you can purchase online to help break the password but I have not used any of them so I cannot recommend any, just research them so you don't get ripped off.
