Question about IBM ThinkPad 390x Notebook
The password that was created on the hard drive (especially if it came from an IBM, or HP/Compaq) cannot be removed by removing the BIOS battery. The password is stored on the firmware chip and there are no backdoor passwords.
The power on password and hard disk password are created from the BIOS setup and it is stored on an EEPROM chip on the laptop.
These password protection methods are designed to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop its data and the hard disk data. Removing the hard disk and inserting it into another computer will not work.
