REMOVE BIOS AND POWER ON PASSWORD ON THINKPAD LAPTOPS

THINKPAD BIOS AND POWER ON PASSWORD
The BIOS password is configured from the BIOS setup and this password is stored on a 20RF08 EEPROM chip. There is no backdoor password available and IBM/Lenevo support says the motherboard needs to be replaced. Also removing the BIOS battery to discharge the BIOS and reset it to the default settings will not allow you to bypass this password.
This also applies to the Power On Password and the Hard Disk Password.

There is a way to crack the password but you need electronic skills, electronic components and several programs plus a working computer to carry out this task.

have a think pad 600 type 2645 with eo301 error, there is a display of a padlock w/ no1 and a blinking cursor on the top left corner


This laptop is protected with a Power on Password.
The password is setup from the BIOS configuration.
There is no backdoor password available and you need the password to boot up the laptop. Once you can boot up the laptop you can enter the BIOS configuration to remove the Power on password.
Removing the BIOS battery to restore the factory defaults will not remove the password because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
