Gateway E4300 Bios Reset Password not working?

Hi, I have a Gateway E4300 that I bought from a friend a while ago and he set the bios admin password. I cleared the CMOS memory with the jack/pins to reset all the setings but the password is still there when you turn it on again. Is there any other way to clear all of the bios settings?

  1. I don't think the jumpers change worked. Try removing the CMOS battery for 20 seconds, then put back in. 8)
  2. Remove the battery and short the CMOS jumper.
  3. There's a trick with the 4300's.
    You set the jumper to reset and turn it on.
    When it boots to the System Configuration screen, go to Enter System Setup.
    There's a setting for Clear All Passwords.
    When you do this and exit, it tells you to turn off the power and reset the jumper to normal.

    Weird, I know!
