Hey guys and gals, I've got a gateway notebook that I can not get into. I put a pw on it and I type it in now and it says I'm wrong I've tried so many variations and I don't know what I've done.

It's a gateway

MODEL: GWTC116-2BL

P/N: BL.9ESAG.117

FCC ID: 2AYPE-GWTC116-2


As soon as I press power before windows has a chance to try to boot a blue box pops up asking for the pw. I've tried everything. I took the whole thing apart looking for a cmos battery. It doesn't have one.

It's got my kids baby pictures on it and I thought I had them backed up to one drive but evidently I don't. Smh. I really screwed up.

Does anyone know what I can do?


I appreciate any help I can get!


Thanks,

Joe

    >>>I put a pw on it>>>

    1. When and from where was it purchased?
    2. Exactly how did you put a password on it?
