I FORGET MY IBM THINKPAD LENOVO T60 BIOS PASSWORD, NOW HOW I ENTER IN BIOS. PLZ GUIDE ME. S.VIRANI


Hi


Remove to your BIOS password download the CmosPwd, and follow the mention below instruction.
Typical Usage for DOS and all Windows users:

1) Identify your BIOS manufacturer (usually displayed at boot-up)

2) Start in DOS, or start a DOS session in Windows 95/98/ME. For Windows NT or Windows 2000 boot from a DOS or Windows 95/98 boot disk (you can find boot disks at www.AnswersThatWork.com), and run CMOSPWD from your boot floppy (or another floppy).

3) C: [Enter] cd CMOSPWD [Enter]

4) Type CMOSPWD at the DOS prompt and press Enter.

5) CMOSPWD will display a list of possibilities. Use the possibilities itemised against your BIOS manufacturer. Remember :

a) For AWARD BIOSes, use the Numeric Keypad (with NumLock ON).
b) AWARD 4.50PG BIOS always accepts "AWARD_SW", or "d8on", or "589589".
c) Old Phoenix BIOSes will accept "phoenix".

6) If the standard method does not work, then try to kill the CMOS password with CMOSPWD /K (and press Enter), and then see if you can get into the CMOS without a password. If you can, you successfully "killed" the old CMOS password. DO NOT KILL THE CMOS ON LAPTOPS!

I forget bios password for ibm thinkpad r30-2656


Removing the BIOS password is difficult because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the BIOS password.

A password bois in thinkpad t60 et merci


This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

The bios needs an operating system to work. That's why it's called an operating system. DOS will even work but, you must have something.

Display 2010 error message


POST warning message 2010 after BIOS upgrade or hard drive installation - ThinkPad General
dblue_rule.gif c.gif d_bold.gif Applicable countries and regions c.gif dotted_rule_443.gif c.gif Symptom After a BIOS upgrade or installation of a new hard drive, the following error message may appear at POST: ERROR
2010:Warning: Your internal hard disk drive (HDD) may not function correctlyon this system. Ensure that your HDD is supported on this system andthat the latest HDD firmware is installed. Press <Esc> to continue

Press <F1> to Setup
The system appears to boot normally after escape is pressed and the operating system will load.

Affected configurations This message may occur on any system that uses the Intel 915 Expresschip set. This new chipset uses a different hard drive interfacetechnology (Serial ATA) to address the hard drive. Models specifically included are of the following systems:
  • ThinkPad R52 systems
    Machine types:
    • 1846, 1847, 1848, 1849, 1850, 1858, 1859, 1860, 1861, 1862, 1863, 1870

  • ThinkPad T43 systems
    Machine types:
    • 1871, 1872, 1873, 1874, 1875, 1876, 2668, 2669, 2678, 2679, 2686, 2687

  • ThinkPad X41 systems
    Machine types:
    • 1864, 1865, 2525, 2526, 2527, 2528

  • ThinkPad X41 Tablet systems
    Machine types:
    • 1866, 1867, 1869
Solution There are three possible workarounds to eliminate the error:
  1. Update the hard drive firmware to the latest level. Download the hard drive firmware update, and then apply to your hard drive.
    Note: This update requires a floppy disk drive.
  2. Replace the hard drive with one supported by the system being used.
  3. Usethe hard drive, producing the 2010, error in the Ultrabay of the systemor a docking station with the second hard drive adapter instead. Theinterface to the Ultrabay is parallel ATA. For more information visit, ThinkPad Second Hard Drive Adapter for Ultrabay Slim - Overview
Additional information This error is purposely generated to alert the user to potentialproblems with diagnostic or copy tools. There are known issues withseveral of these listed below.
  1. Disk Fitness Test (DFT) version 3.xx provided byHitachi GST which uses vendor specific commands on the hard drive.These may not be correctly interpreted since they must pass through theserial to parallel ATA bridge. However, version 4.00 or later of theDisk Fitness Test (DFT) will work.
  2. HDDTEST version 0.28 by Hitachi GST does not function properly for similar reasons. Instead, use HDDTEST version 0.29 or later.
  3. DOS-basedcopy tools may function slowly or produce incorrect output,specifically previous versions of Norton/Symantec Ghost. These versionsare not compatible with the Serial-ATA interface of the Intel ICH6Mchip set. Documentation on this problem may be found atwww.symantec.com. It is recommended to use either a newer version ofGhost, Norton Ghost 2003 (version 2003.789 or later) or Symantec Ghost8.0 or later, or to use the -FNI switch when invoking Ghost from thecommand prompt (For example, Ghost.exe -FNI with the current version of Ghost).
Other disk copy tools and related applications, such as some backup programs, may also have similar behavior. Thehard drives shipped in the affected systems will not display themessage because they already have firmware that recognizes this newSerial ATA bridge chip. However, a similar drive from an earlierThinkPad system or an OEM drive might cause the error message to bedisplayed. Customers may also notice the POST error message afterapplying a ThinkPad BIOS update if a drive without the firmware updateis installed in the system. Some early systems were shipped with asystem BIOS version that did not provide this POST error message.Updated BIOS has been released to provide this informative POST errormessage to users.

How to get into the Dos prompt at reboot for the IBM ThinkPad 2645?


Vince,
First of all, What operating system do you have on this machine?
If it's Win98, you can get DOS.
If it's WinXP, you will have to make a bootable CD to get into the DOS prompt.
Check out this link :
http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

You can also get into the setup from CD, by changing the boot sequence from BIOS. (If the installation CD that you have is a bootable CD)

Hope this helps.

Thanks & Good luck!
