Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook
I purchased a notebook from my company and changed my password. it was a gift to my daughter for xmas. i have forgotten the password and so she cannot get signed on. how can i get in and re-set the password and redeem myself at least partially?
Is this a BIOS password? If so, read below...
Problem: I forgot my password.
Solution: 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.
Which is a problem, to say the least.
If it's a Windows password, you can only reset the password by logging in with the Administrator account. This is more problematical with Vista because then Vista might lock out some files after the reset. Good luck.
