What do I do if my Gateway SOLO 9300 laptop s

Gateway laptop / Solo 9300

Specs: Windows 2000
I am fixing this computer, and I noticed that it will not turn on without a BIOS Password or Driver Information. Where can I get this information? Does anyone have the password?

They do not have the information. They have had this computer for a very long time. I was wondering if anyone has a BIOS passowrd?

Someone else's password isn't going to do you any good.

There might be a 'backdoor' password but I'm stll skeptical that's anything more than an urban legend. It seems you get a lot of 'this might work' or 'that might work' but I don't recall anyone saying they have the backdoor password and then have it work for everyone else with the same bios.

Can you boot it up, even with a floppy disk? You might try something like CMOSPWD:

(Ignore all the 'recommended' downloads and just get cmospwd.)
