Resetting the cmos has nothing to do with the Windows OS. It only helps you if your BIOS is password protected.

...and the whole idea of a password is, that nobody else can hack into your machine that easily, right?

Anyways - there are ways to reset a password: google is your best friend in this case. And you will need access to a CD burner, since you have to boot your laptop from the downloaded "Rescue-CD".

    Since you are saying it can not boot up - do you have a password set in your BIOS?

Forgot password to my ibm thinkpad 2373


Which password have you forgotten? If it is the Power On password this can be reset by briefly removing the connection from the system board to the cmos battery. If it is the Supervisor password you can either send it to Lenovo for a replacement system board and hard drive or send to me and I will return with password removed. fixmythinkpad@btinternet.com Regards Paul

Reset bios password for lenovo r60


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7229632-reset_or_remove_bios_password

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

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.

Oh my laptop IBM R60 bios password and try by removing cmos battery but still please email me if u got the ideal


Removing the BIOS battery did not reset the BIOS password because the BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip. visit laptopmasterpassword.net

I had rem9oved my cmos battery from my laptop,now it powers on but dont gives a display


Removing the cmos battery nowadays doesn't mean you've reset the BIOS. Check their website and look for how to reset the CMOS. It's typically a little button or moving a jumper.

IBM R52 Laptop locked after removing and re-putting CMOS battery


This is an excerpt form the service manual for this exact model of notebooks:

If you forgot your power-on password, you must take your computer to a Lenovo authorized servicer or a marketing representative to have the password canceled. If you forgot your hard disk password, Lenovo authorized servicer can not reset your password or recover data from the hard disk. You must take your computer to a Lenovo authorized servicer or a marketing representative to have the hard disk drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service. If you forgot your supervisor password, Lenovo can not reset your password. You must take your computer to a Lenovo authorized servicer or a marketing representative to have the system board replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service.

Hope this will answer your question.

Forget BIOS Password (Laptop - IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R60)


For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.

Removing CMOS battery on ibm r50e is not solving the pass problem


Removing battery or resetting BIOS with jumper will not help. You should call IBM for support on this issue. All thinkpads have a three year warranty, with either return to base or on-site service. Since the R50e is a recent model, you should have no problem getting it serviced directly by IBM. Toll Free: 1-800-IBM-SERV (1-800-426-7378)
