I.B.M. Thinkpad Type 2367 WON'T UNLOCK/Password Locked

Laptop was purchased used, thru ebay and worked excellent for several years. Somehow, we have password locked the system upon boot up. We have tried all the combos of our normally used password with no success. We live in Costa Rica and have had trouble finding a tech who can help us. The type is 2367-GU4 S/N 78-AWWX1 12/02. with the original Windows XP Professional as the operating system. Computers here are very costly here so if anyone can help, we would appreciate it.

Even after removing the large battery and small battery, and then i plugged it back in and restarted the computer but the lock display still comes up. How do you unlock the computer


If you are talking about the Bios Password Locked this is bad news. The ep-prom that retains the password is an eight pin surface mount ic that needs to be changed or the motherboard replaced. The only other suggestion is go to www.ebay.com and type laptop and password, there are sellers that offer solutions but go through the list carefully to see if your model is included and read the information with caution.

Locked r30 diplays locked symbol can't do a thing


Does this laptop belong to you or you purchased it? If so you need to contact that person for the password or ask for a refund.

This ThinkPad laptop has a Power on Password. This password is enabled to prevent unauthorized access to this laptop.
This password is configured from the BIOS and is stored on an EEPROM chip (ATMEL 24RF08) and removing the BIOS battery to reset the BIOS to the factory defaults will not remove this password.

There are no backdoor passwords available. IBM state the fix is a replacement motherboard.

I forgot mypassword to unlock my ibm thinkpad x20 can u help me?


I used to be an IBM Certified Gold Dealer (amongst my several certifications, BS Degree in Computer Science, and many years in the computer industry); I said that to start in the event that anyone may have a question as to my credentials.

The unfortunate answer to this dilemma is that once you have set a system board level password on any IBM laptop (notebooks included), it is impossible to work-around that issue (unlike any other system board). The ugly truth to this is that IBM can't even do it; and, there is no way around it, whatsoever!!!!

As for the same issue, since Lanovo purchased IBM's small computer division, the answer may be different!! I have no idea since I've not had to deal with the issue since the purchase.

Sorry, the only answer I can provide you with is to purchase a new system board for your unit.

Sincerely,

Maestro

Remove excel password


HI!
Just go to google.com and type the following into the search box.

Excel Password Unlocker free download

and find a free office password unlocker.

most password unlocker tools do not give you the password to unlock your workbook, they just go into the system workings and unlock the entire workbook for you.

save a copy of your locked up workbook. only try the breakers on a copy, just in case.

I CANNOT BOOT MY IBM THINKPAD 2367..HELP


Both errors are related to the backup battery which is located under the main battery. It is probably dead. You can get one on eBay for $3.29 w/free shipping or pay a shop $20 to put one in. If you do it yourself be very gentle plugging it into the tricky little slot - it is possible to break the connector loose from the motherboard but it is an easy repair if you have patience and dexterity. As for the password, try just hitting enter. It is the supervisor password to change the BIOS settings and was probably never set.
Hope this helps.

Laptop is locked out


This works great
Forgotten Power-on password
If the Power-on password is forgotten
and the Supervisor password is known,
simply go into the ThinkPad BIOS setup
utility and reset the Power-on password,
otherwise try the following:
Turn off the computer.
Remove the battery pack.
Remove the backup battery. This is
located under the battery.
Turn on the computer and wait until the
POST ends. After the POST ends, the
password prompt does not appear. The POP
has been removed.
Reinstall the backup battery and the
battery pack.
Note: Some ThinkPad systems have the
ability to reset the Power-on passwords
in the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility if a
Supervisor password has been set.
