MY IBM LAPTOP T23 2647ASKS FOR BIOS PASSWORD WHICH I DO NOT HAVE WHEN EVER I SWITCH IT ON.NOW I CAN NOT USE IT.


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

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD.

Hello how to reset bios password of ibm thinkpad t23 2647


Hi,

To unlock the bios password on your laptop, you will need to remove the cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios password will be reset, and that fix the problem.

Take care.

Forgot my password to power on my ibm t23 what can i do ?


If a BIOS or HD lock password you are out of luck.

BIOS password means replacement of the system board. HD password requires replacement of the HD and reinstallation of all software on new drive.

This is a security feature so no one can steal laptops and try to use or sell it.

How clear power on password in laptop


Hi,
You have 3 choice (i mean, thats all i know:) )

1: Get a new BIOS
2: Get the password from latest user (dont know if laptop yours or not)
3: Get the BIOS Flashed (Which is costly)

There is no way to unlock it without open it ,sorry.
Good luck....

T23 SVP gone


Ah! Passwords.... Do you see anything about WINDOWS before it ask? Then its a windows password and you can go hunt all over filesharing land for a PE disk, preferably a Winternals PE disk.. or be nice and buy one.. On a borrowed computer of course..

Nothing about windows before it asks for a P/W? Oh goody bios password... Much more trouble.. On IBM machine really nasty... Your HD is probably locked too.. You can spend hours on google after this, but you may have a brick.. or be looking at building a custom board with instructions from this guy in Australia, hooking teeny tiny wires to a chip on your laptop baord, running a program and sending the result and $25 to him..
IBM laptops=great bloody bios password security.. Oh.. Co. up in Canada does it for $400, after proof you own the thing..

Good hunting..

Power-on password problem!


The power on password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS/CMOS battery won't help.
You need to read the EEPROM chip to get the password.
