Go to your friend. Download and burn this cd http://www.9down.com/Hiren-s-BootCD-9-8-Keyboard-Patch-73110/
Boot your pc from it and use BIOS / CMOS Tools from it.

It seems to have a password set for that hard disk. Try using another hard disk. If you have the same issue, then there is some sort of password set in the BIOS.

Dear john, replacing CMOS Battery usually RESET password ( plug out your laptop battery,then plug out the CMOS battery. keep it out for 5 minutes.)
After 5 minutes by, put back on the CMOS battery. put it back all together. laptop battery the last one.
On the first boot you need to set the time and date. or by pass it by pressing ESC. >> If your Operating System goes >>> right click on clock task bar >>Adjust Date/Time >> set as you wish >> apply >> ok >>>RESTART your unit.

It sounds as though your computer has the wrong time in the CMOS. The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductors) is the chip that holds the basic startup information for the BIOS, system and its peripherals while the system is turned on and off.

If you can get into the BIOS check the date and time settings and make sure they are correct.

It may also be a case of the CMOS Battery going out. When this happens your computer will tend to not keep the correct time. They are cheap and relatively easy to replace. Before buying a new battery you can try to take it out and let it sit for about 10 minutes or so to reset the CMOS and then go put the battery back in and go into the BIOS and reset the clock.

Hopefully taking the battery out or replacing it will get past your lock icon asking for the password. If not then you may have to find out the manufacturer of your computer's motherboard to see if there is a common password to get past the lockout. Since it's a laptop then it should be easier to find this code based on the manufacturer.

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)

So wait, its asking for a BIOS/CMOS password? If so, one thing you can try to do is remove the CMOS battery. The battery is about the size of a nickel and can be found on the bottom of your laptop. You'll have to unscrew a few things to find it. Once you do, take extreme precaution when touching anything inside the computer. I would recommend getting an Anti-Static Wrist strap (sold at Best Buy). Once you locate the CMOS battery, take it out. Keep it out for about a minute and then put it back in and close everything back up. When you do this it usually resets the BIOS/CMOS password if there is one. Hope this helps!
