My wife has a Gateway desktop. She entered a password for the Bios and doesn't remember it. The computer crashed and will not re-boot from the CD. The disk spins up and loads the drivers but won't go any further. I am not sure if it is the password that is stopping it or not. Is there any way to remove or by-pass the password? Short of sending it to a repair shop, I am stumped.Please help.
The OS is Windows XP

power off the system then remove the COMS battery on the motherboard..wait for 1 min and insert back the battery.
