    Hello. It would be helpful if you could provide specifically which password you are referring to. Is this the BIOS password (the one that comes up before windows)? Or is it the Windows user password? And also, it would be a good idea to post the complete model number of your thinkpad.

Ok, since you need the windows password, you can try to figure it out by the hint, as suggested by the other user. If you still can't, try pressing alt+ctrl+del+del on the login prompt and a window will pop up for login. in the username, type administrator, and don't put anything on the password, then ok. if you are able to login, you can then change the password for the other user in the control panel.

I was given a IBM think pad 2626.My friend can't remember the password. What can I do?


There are three passwords used at a typical customer site:
the Setup password, the HDD password, and the Power
On password.
Ÿ Power On password:
1. Power off the computer.
20 ThinkPad 390E 2. Remove the battery pack and AC Adapter.
3. Remove the backup battery (RTC) for 20
minutes or use a screwdriver to touch the
backup battery (RTC) for 1 second.
4. Put back the backup battery (RTC).
5. Power on the computer and wait until POST
ends.
6. Verify that the password prompt does not
appear.
Ÿ Supervisor and HDD passwords:
The Supervisor password and Hard Disk password
(Hard Disk1 and Hard Disk2) are security features
that are used to protect the system and the hard disk
drive data from unauthorized access. No overriding
capability is provided, so it cannot be replaced if they
are forgotten. If the customer forgets the Supervisor
password, the system board must be replaced. If the
customer forgets the Hard Disk password, the hard
disk drive must be replaced.

IBM thinkpad T41 -> get


Hi,

The IBM Thinkpad has a very strong security system.

If you are seeing a lock symbol when booting then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't remember it or guess it (try "password", "admin", "pass", etc) then you need to find the person that set the supervisor password.

Once the supervisor password is set the T41 is very well protected and it can't be reset by removing the laptop battery or CMOS battery.

There is a way to read the password from the protection chip but this is very complicated and requires taking the laptop apart and building your own chip reader.

The instructions for doing this are are:

Hope this helps,

PASSWORD COMOS IBM THINK PAD R50


Hi, If you are talking about the Boot, HDD, Bios password, then the only one way to recover it is to implement a chip on the systemboard to shorcut the protection or to contact Lenovo for a systemboard replacement. Unfortunalty, no other ways other round. Thanks and have a nice day J-

I put a password in for the power on and the administrator things and it turns out to be to long but it let me put it in. now when i put it in i cant put the hole thing in and i cant power up my lap top....


the only solutions i know are both non easy fixes. one is to strip down the laptop and find the bios battery if it has one. then pull it, leave it 30 seconds and put it back in, rebuild and all will be well. the other is to get hold of IBM and fax them proof of ID and ownership (the usualy request although i havent done it with IBM yet) and they have an unlocking set of passwords which is written into the BIOS.
