    Hy! :)

    Thanks for your will to help me.
    There's how it goes:
    I don't beleive that there has been any password set. At least I don't know for it, because I never had to use any password. My Computer simply doesn't turn on. Even before it boots it just shows a blank screen with a padlock drawn in the upper left corner, and I m afraid that this is all that I can tell.
    The only thing that I also noticed is that computer only allows to enter 6 alphanumerical signs or numbers.....

    Thanks :) and thanks for a funny and educational clip :)

    I donts supose this is what you need, but I couldent let it go.... 
    I just had to show you - maybe we can all learn something.


    What you need is a password, or a way to get around it, right:
    You have to tell me if its the BIOS password (before windows start)
    or is it the Windows password?

SOURCE: locked screen

emove the CMOS battery, POP will be vanished right away. But after that, you have to enter BIOS to set the time/date, otherwise laptop won't boot.

This is a common problem with the T20 series Thinkpad. The problem is with the power management chip. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard to fix it. Since these are a bit on the older side, you can get a motherboard off Ebay at a reasonable price.
