IF it  is a BIOS password ,Try taking  out the battery and shorting the BIOS terminals then reinstallign the battery or leave it out long enought  for the capasitors and memory chips to loose their charge.  Reinstall the battery and then memory of the pasword wil be no more. BIOS Brainwashing.

Do you mean remove password from What BIOS / Windows

If BIOS, laptop needs complete strip down to remove CMOS battery for 1 hour.

If Windows, some versions can be cracked with software, you do not say what version you have?

Laptop is locked out


This works great
Forgotten Power-on password
If the Power-on password is forgotten
and the Supervisor password is known,
simply go into the ThinkPad BIOS setup
utility and reset the Power-on password,
otherwise try the following:
Turn off the computer.
Remove the battery pack.
Remove the backup battery. This is
located under the battery.
Turn on the computer and wait until the
POST ends. After the POST ends, the
password prompt does not appear. The POP
has been removed.
Reinstall the backup battery and the
battery pack.
Note: Some ThinkPad systems have the
ability to reset the Power-on passwords
in the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility if a
Supervisor password has been set.
