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.

I forgot mypassword to unlock my ibm thinkpad x20 can u help me?


I used to be an IBM Certified Gold Dealer (amongst my several certifications, BS Degree in Computer Science, and many years in the computer industry); I said that to start in the event that anyone may have a question as to my credentials.

The unfortunate answer to this dilemma is that once you have set a system board level password on any IBM laptop (notebooks included), it is impossible to work-around that issue (unlike any other system board). The ugly truth to this is that IBM can't even do it; and, there is no way around it, whatsoever!!!!

As for the same issue, since Lanovo purchased IBM's small computer division, the answer may be different!! I have no idea since I've not had to deal with the issue since the purchase.

Sorry, the only answer I can provide you with is to purchase a new system board for your unit.

Sincerely,

Maestro

Forgot startup password


For the Windows password you will need to reformat your hard drive. If that would not be done or if there is another way of removing the password without removing and reinstalling the operating system or of using your laptop by working around, windows password does not make sense at all. Hope this helps. Thank you.
