    Without the exact model number I cannot give you the jumper location, so I suggested the CMOS battery. There is a jumper .. could you give me the exact model number ?

Why am I getting an error message "password is incorrect" I have used the same password for years


Hi!

It seems that your password that you're entering doesn't match what the computer has on file.

Have you recently changed passwords? Are you sure you're entering in the correct requested password? What are you trying to enter a password for?

Hope this helps, and feel free to reply back for additional assistance.

Hello,sorry my english is not good, i have a problem with my thinkcentre M52 . when i start the comp it writes enter system password.i press enter and it goes into the Bios,but i cant change anything into...


Someone has put a password on the BIOS - you must input it before entering the BIOS and the normal boot procedure. Because of the way IBM are build you can't reset the password by removing the battery, but only by performing a low level BIOS upgrade - which only a dealer can do. You will have to take it to one.
If you aren't the one that put that password and noone had access to it then the motherboard is dying - replace it before it's too late and all your data is lost.

How i transfer data from window to linux


Depending on your linux distrobution, you will need to check the /etc/samba or /etc/smb configuration file, within that file there will be a place to set your windowsfile sharing password. then you will be able to transfer data across the local network between your linux / windows machine again..

however, if you've actually changed the password for the linux user account that enabled the samba file sharing, you will need to either remember that password, or set a new one from the root account byt typing the following command in a terminal / bash / shell session:

Task: Set or change user password Type passwd command as follows>
$ passwd <user>

Output: Changing password for <user>
Enter new password:
Retype new password:
passwd: password updated successfully
NOTE: when typing the password, you may not see the password you are typing..
You need to replace <user> with the username you are changing the password for.

You can reset the passwords by removing the small round cmos battery on the motherboard for about 5 seconds. Replace & reboot. Problem should be solved. Hope this helps.
