A nice program for software reseting BIOS passwords when it is possible.

Thought sometimes computers like gateway don't use the right type of BIOS so this will not work.

For people that can't get this to work here is what you do :
Grab something that doesn't conduct electricity very well and is very thin like a 'toothpick' will do. Place the 'toothpick' between the BIOS battery and its metal tab for about 15 seconds while the computer is unplugged. Pull it out plug in the computer and start it up let the computer set itself back to optimized defaults.

If placing a 'toothpick' in between the battery and metal tab is not possible then you may have to search up BIOS jumping and make an adapter for it.
