Hi, During the boot at the THINKPAD SCREEN press the Thinkvantage key ( Blue button ) it will launch rescue and recovery and allow you to reboot factory. This only works if you did not corrupted/deleted the rescue and recovery hidden partition on the HDD. Otherwise you will need the rescue and recovery CD to proceed. IBM/Lenovo support should be able to provide you the CD. thanks and have a nice day J-

    I have an IBM thinkpad x41 and it comes to the Windows xp screen needing a password and I dont know the password can someone help me?


    You can use Ophcrack, an open source software. You don't need any access to Windows to be able to recover your lost passwords. Simply visit the site, download the free ISO image, burn it to a CD and boot from the CD. The Ophcrack program starts, locates the Windows user accounts, and proceeds to recover (crack) the passwords - all automatically.

    Here is the link to download you ISO file to burn to a cd.
    http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ophcrack/ophcrack-xp-livecd-2.3.1.iso

    Or use Another computer by installing the exe file and make a cd for your recovery:
    http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ophcrack/ophcrack-win32-installer-3.3.1.exe
