There is a list of common backdoor passwords for BIOS locks here. If these do not work you may need to seek help at your local computer repair facility, as cracking these passwords is either extremely difficult, or involves dissasembling the machine.
Maybe IBM have some drivers but as XP is obsolete, they may not.
Operating Systems as supplied from new. Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 32-bit and 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005
Are you using XP Tablet Edition as that edition has the drivers for the features?

The best way to fix this is to insert the Windows Vista DVD that originally came with the computer. After you have the disc in, restart the computer and you should be prompted to "Press Any Key To Boot From Disc" or something along those lines...
Once you do that you will be given the option to repair Windows Vista. It will automatically scan the computer and fix any issues.
If you have a specific error message or have any trouble doing this, please let me know and I will be more then happy to further assist you!
IBM sold off it's notebook line to LENOVO. The Thinkpads are excellent business machines and for the price of a Macbook that is dual-bootable, you can really do the Thinkpad up nicely. If he was going to college for a design or music or something like that I would go with the Macbook. Since he is going for business, go with the Thinkpad.
