Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Gateway HDD Password

I have an arc200 Gateway laptop that has a passworded harddrive and when I talked to Gateway the Tech said that in the Forums on Limewire I would find the answer on how to remove the HDD Password. The owner of the laptop doesnt even know how the password got installed. I would appreciate any help possible. Thanks Dustyone

Default Thanks for the help

When I followed the link the company had taken down the page so I went to there homepage and emailed them for a cost.
The Gateway tech said that it is code that is needed to get into this password. I may call gateway back and see what another tech has to say.

If you can enter the bios setup you can disable it there. The bios password is usually easier to crack if set than a hdd lock. If it is a Windows password search for a bypass for that on google. If it is a hdd lock than depending on the manufacture of the drive it may have a master password that can be entered using atapwd.exe. If the hdd password is set it goes with the drive and can only be unlocked with a password. No swapping or disconnecting or shorting will unlock it. It's like putting a combination on a piece of paper and locking it in a bank vault, unless you know the combination you can't see the combination or unlock it. If all else fails than these guys can help for a fee, http://www.hddunlock.com. Hope this helps.

no need to crack a BIOS password, just take out the little battery for about a minute (clearing CMOS), and its gone..OK, so you will also loose all BIOS settings and have to reset them, but that should be no biggy

You know, I find it extremely strange that a Gateway Tech would direct a person to a Limewire forum to find a crack for someone’s HD. After all, this forum does not advocate cracks for software so why should it advocate cracks for hardware.

Either this Tech does not know his job, the full story in this thread has not fully come out or someone is laying out bait to see who bites.

WW

You know, I was thinking "stolen laptop" too but I have been accused, in the recent past, of "mud slinging".

So I decided to be a bit more diplomatic.

Default Stolen

I can tell you it is not stolen. When I called gateway they had the owners name registered for it and everything. The owner is a young guy with a business and he is not very tech oriented. I am an administrator for a school system and know what cmos passwords and hdd asswords are. I would not even take the chance of playing with a stolen laptop. I did call gateway to confirm that it wasnt stolen, when I told them the name of who gave it to me they confirmed that he was the owner. I do appreciate the helpful links you guys have given me so far. Thanks.
