Back up your most important data to an external storage device in case anything goes wrong while changing the BIOS settings. Remove any disc that is currently inserted in the IBM Thinkpad X41's disc drive.
2-Shut off the Thinkpad X41 laptop. Turn the laptop back on and wait for the "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" message to appear on the screen.
3-Tap the blue Access IBM button at the top of the keyboard. Click the "Access BIOS" button when the "Rescue and Recovery" menu appears.
4-Click "Yes" and wait for the BIOS to load. Type in the current BIOS password for the IBM X41 and press Enter.5-Navigate over to the IBM's "Security" heading by tapping the right arrow key twice. Scroll down to the "Supervisor Password" listing and press "F5."6-Type the IBM's current BIOS password and hit Enter. Leave the next field blank if you want to completely remove the BIOS password, or instead type in a new password to replace the old one. Press Enter.7-Press "Escape" and then highlight "Restart" and press F5. Navigate to "Save changes and Restart" and press Enter.

    My IBM Thinkpad is not switching on?

    The error message relates to the date and time setting in the BIOS, it has a wrong due to a flat BIOS battery. The needs to be replaced and the date and time corrected,
    The padlock symbol indicates the laptop's BIOS has been set with a password and you cannot enter and change the BIOS settings without this password.

    Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then boot up and enter your BIOS password, then change the time & date, then save and exit.

    The Power On Password problem is near impossible to crack. It is designed to prevent unauthorized access to the Thinkpad and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the password because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
    There are no backdoor passwords available, the only option is to ask the person who set the password.
    There is a way to hack into the Thinkpad to see and remove the password but it requires electronic skills, a program and a working computer.

    I got a thinkpad 2635 yesterday from a friend and upon powerup it displays an error message with 00161 and 00163 printed under it with two options ok and cancel what do i do to get into this thing

    These error message relates to the BIOS and it appears the BIOS battery requires replacing because it is flat.
    error 161 usually BIOS has lost its configuration/ checksum error.
    error 163 usually BIOS clock not updating.
    Replace this battery and go into the BIOS setting and configure the date/time settings, and hardware settings (if you are not sure select the factory default settings) save and exit

    IBM Laptop A22e Display an error 0175

    The CRC error (POST = power on startup test) on boot up refers to the BIOS settings. This could be cause by a near flat BIOS battery and it needs to be replaces. If it is not the battery you need go to the BIOS to correct any faulty settings.
