I have tried the backdoor passwords you provide me with Phoenix motherboard but unfortunately I can't put all the letters of these words.

My keyboard do not reply with the right row of the letters. I mean that I can't push any button from Y - H - N and to the right side of them. When I push them I hear a beep sound and nothing happened. So it was impossible to write these passwords.

On weekend I will try with software and DOS system like you told me.
Can I use the DOS system inside windows XP?

Thank you in advance.

SOURCE: Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet security chip. lost

I have had to retrieve the BIOS password from one of these before. It is not an easy thing to get to. You have to first

  • Build a special 9-pin Serial cable using parts you can find at Radio Shack
  • Dismantle the laptop
  • find the correct BIOS chip,
  • Solder a couple wires to the correct pins of the BIOS chip (without getting solder on the other pins, or damaging something)
  • Hook it up to another computer via serial port
  • Do a dump of the information stored on the BIOS chip
  • Use a hex-reader to decipher the information and display the password within.
Here is a link to a site that shows you in detail how to accomplish this. It does work, and I've successfully used the linked method to unlock a X41 of my own.

How to restore image by using bootable usb oc dvd

I prefer installing/upgrading the operating system on the ix104c2 with a USB flash drive and the program "WinToFlash" and set the "Hard drive priority" to whatever flash drive you are using as the first boot device in BIOS. I recommend using a USB key board to navigate BIOS and it is required to install the Operating system.

Back up your most important data to an external storage device in case anything goes wrong while changing the BIOS settings. Remove any disc that is currently inserted in the IBM Thinkpad X41's disc drive.
2-Shut off the Thinkpad X41 laptop. Turn the laptop back on and wait for the "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" message to appear on the screen.
3-Tap the blue Access IBM button at the top of the keyboard. Click the "Access BIOS" button when the "Rescue and Recovery" menu appears.
4-Click "Yes" and wait for the BIOS to load. Type in the current BIOS password for the IBM X41 and press Enter.5-Navigate over to the IBM's "Security" heading by tapping the right arrow key twice. Scroll down to the "Supervisor Password" listing and press "F5."6-Type the IBM's current BIOS password and hit Enter. Leave the next field blank if you want to completely remove the BIOS password, or instead type in a new password to replace the old one. Press Enter.7-Press "Escape" and then highlight "Restart" and press F5. Navigate to "Save changes and Restart" and press Enter.

    I was given 3 of these devices and they seem pretty cool but, after looking in the box I don't see any A/C charging units or any other type of charging units, what gives?

    According to a "review" written in September 2005:

    What's in the Box:
    • Xplore iX104C2 Tablet PC
    • Battery
    • Pen & Tether
    • User manual
    • Getting Started guide
    • Cleaning cloth
    • AC adapter & Power cord
    • warranty booklet

    So, when "new", there should have been an AC adapter.

    I need a IX104 battery pack. Any kind will do. Where can I get one?

    This is a tough one, I did some research and found the best bet is to either A. contact which makes the xplore tablets, see if they can point you in the right direction. Or B. and this is my choice, I would take the pack to interstate battery, a nationwide company that deals with batteries, and they offer a service to make any battery. I don't know how much it would cost to do this, but it maybe your only hope.
