As to getting into BIOS, are you entering BIOS by pressing the key it says at the right time? If someone has password protected the BIOS, then you need to get them to access the BIOS. If it's been forgotten, then pull the CMOS battery inside PC for a few minutes. Reinstall battery and try again. Don't forget to properly shutdown if possible and shutoff power to PC before working inside of case.

all sorts of passwords, and this happens to be one of the ones i added, basicly with mine it would start up, in bios it would stop, and go black, and demand a hd
password, each time i got 3 chances before it went off and ignored the hd all together, i spent nearly a year near the breakin point tryin to remember the
password or get around it... i ruined one hd bridge, the battery system... ordered new ram an a new bridge, got close to a new hd.. finally i got the password right
on one strange day, since then ive been unable to get rid of the password and it still plagues the computer, but i can at least enter it now and use it. The password
is case sensitive, remember the password or try the likely and unlikely possibilities it could be... u could always try Gateway for support to.... i didnt but
eh... Good luck, God be with You.
Peace be with all of You
