The BIOS password isconfigured from the BIOS setup and this password is stored on an 24RF08 EEPROM chip. There is no backdoor passwordavailable and IBM/Lenevo support says the motherboard needs to be replaced.Also removing the BIOS battery to discharge the BIOS and reset it to thedefault settings will not allow you to bypass this password. This also applies to thePower On Password and the Hard Disk Password.There is a way to crack thepassword but you need electronic skills, electronic components and severalprograms plus a working computer to carry out this task.For details on how to dothis check this WEB site.http://sodoityourself.com/hacking-ibm-thinkpad-bios-password/http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335050-remove_bios_power_password_thinkpad

I have lenovo thinkcentre A57, i can't access in bios setup while pressing F1, F8 or F12, when i'm pressing any of them the computer continue to boot in a black screen. Sincerely: Juls


To start the Setup Utility program, do the following:
1.
If your computer is already on when you start this procedure, turn off the
computer.
2.
Repeatedly press and release the F1 key when turning on the computer. When
you hear multiple beeps or see a logo screen, release the F1 key.
Note:
If a Power-On Password or an Administrator Password has been set, the
Setup Utility program menu is not displayed until you type the correct
password.

Hi, what can I do to remove Power-on Password on my Lenonovo T61.?


Do you know the password?

If you do, the option to enable / dissable passwords is located in the bios.

when you turn on the laptop, look for a message on screen saying press ESC or F1 -F12 for setup. Within the setup screen will be an option to change the password settings.

ERROR 0210: Stuck key 7B Press F1 to setup . Please help me out of this problem.


There are issues with the ThinkVantage Button at boot as it doesn't do what its suppose to. Just use the F1(BIOS Setup), F11(pre-boot/recovery area) and F12(boot device selection).


Just a reminder to practice press and release when pressing a button. We sometimes get impatient and do a key hold down for a while rather than multiple press and release.


I hope this would resolves your ERROR 0210: Stuck key

My Lenovo T61 is not troubleshooting. It was infected by an virus, How can I restart the computer? Please help


Hi,

ThinkPad computers have what we call the service partition, which can set the computer back to its factory stated even without the recovery disc. The service partition can be accessed by pressing the Access ThinkPad or Access IBM button during start up.

Prior to performing a software recovery, Lenovo recommends returning your system to it's original factory configuration by removing all hardware that has been added to your system.
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:


To start the Product Recovery program, press F11



This message will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will enter the Service partition.

Select Full Recovery to get rid of the viruses. Wait for it to complete and your computer will be back to when it was fresh as new.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! a 4 thumbs up if this helped will be greatly appreciated.

I have lenovo brought by my brother from america it has pop password given by his friend now when he asked his friend he told that he had forgotten now i cant access it the screen comes to be with password...


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your Lenovo laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Reset factory password on t61 lenovo


password for what? bios or windows?
if it's the windows password, press the f8 key before windows starts and choose safe mode, choose administrator for the username and then go to user accounts and remove the password for your account.
if it's the bios password, you have to strip the laptop and pull the bios battery on the system...it looks like a large watch battery but becarefull not to break anything.
