Question about IBM ThinkPad T42 Notebook
Well i am reformatting my drive whenever i came to the screen that has me put in the System or Administrator password of which i dont have one my service number is 25LJGF1 -595B, i have already contacted dell about this they told me to contact best buy since that is where i bought it. I contacted best buy but they want to charge me for it eventhough i just bought the laptop, about 3 months ago. So i need someone to help me out as soon as possible thank you.
Reformatting is not something done lightly so I hope it is really necessary; 'Restore' does not demolish everything you have added since new.
Normally, if one does not want to use a password at all, you just hit 'Enter' at that screen and Windows then assumes you are not going to assign one.
If it is asking for a BIOS setup password, then you are stuck with Best Buy's magnanimous offer. (If anyone knows of a vendor that doesn't **** - post their name.)

Biosremoval.com is a big scammer!, just google and you will know. do not advise.

Normally if you buy from Dell then they should give you this information as long as you can prove your the owner of the laptop. Since you bought it from Bestbuy, the only thing that Dell warranties is the charger,the rest is from Bestbuy. You will need to talk to BB to see if they will assist you, if not call their Corp office in MN.
