AMT BX setup on a used computer with an unknown password.

Got a Gateway FX510S with and intel 975X chipset and the Active Management Technology Bios Extention. However when I tried to enter the AMT none of the traditional (including blank) defaults worked. How do I clear the password? Jumpering the BIOS, removing the battery,, and flashing the BIOS haven't cleared the password. Or it has been returned to an unknown default?

Hi Betterdaily,

Removing power and pulling the CMOS battery (coin battery) should reset the AMT password. The default password for AMT is "admin".

Thanks
