Bios reset

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i have a gateway laptop that a client gave me to work on.
apparntly it has a boot password on it that i can not crack or reset.
the client claims to not know this password.
I tried pulling the cmos batt out for 30 min to no luck
anyone have a way around this ?
