Ok, make sure that your hard driver is properly connected also go into the bios and tab to where it says boot sequence and make sure that your hard drive is the first one in the list.

Just as i turn the power on it says date time error then goes to a black screen and asks for a password ibm r51e


HMM, your kind of screwed I have worked on the thinkpads in my shop b4 and there is no work around the bios password. Either you need to remember your password or get ahold of who you bought it from. IBM has a military contract and they are not allowed to set a backdoor on the thinkpads according to that contract. The only thing they can do is replace the motherboard its a crock but thats the way it is. I would just but buy a new laptop that motherboard is $249 plus labor.

I turn on my ibm thinkpad and the desktop want come up.


That is the BIOS password it is looking for. You can remove the battery from the motherboard for about 20 minutes. This will reset the BIOS, you may not be able to remove the battery if it is soldered in place. Did this just start doing this?
