My sister has a gateway laptop. Somehow or another it has a startup password and she has no idea what it is. Is there anyway to recover or bypass the password. It will not load windows or anything else without the password.
I also have a gateway laptop with the Operating System disk and can create disk from mine. If nothing else can I reboot her computer with my OS disk?

Hi babygus0!

It is against the ToS of GeeksToGo to help with the bypassing of anykind of password. Even though your intentions may be legit, we can't take the risk of someone else reading this topic and using the knowledge gained for purposes that are not so legit. I hope you understand. This topic is now closed.
