IBM thinkpad T41 -> get


The IBM Thinkpad has a very strong security system.

If you are seeing a lock symbol when booting then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't remember it or guess it (try "password", "admin", "pass", etc) then you need to find the person that set the supervisor password.

Once the supervisor password is set the T41 is very well protected and it can't be reset by removing the laptop battery or CMOS battery.

There is a way to read the password from the protection chip but this is very complicated and requires taking the laptop apart and building your own chip reader.

The instructions for doing this are are:

Hope this helps,

My 9 year old computer is lock how do i unlock it if i forget his pass word

If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account (click on switch account to log in). If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP
- or this for Vista/Win7
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD

I am working on a Lenova t43 laptop for my school, which has been locked by a previous tech. I removed the cmos battery and left it out over night, but it did not erase the locked cmos. Is there anything...

Traditionally with ThinkPads:

1. The BIOS password can be reset with the CMOS.
2. The Supervisor password cannot.
3. The HD password cannot.

If it's the harddrive that's locked you will have to replace that. If it's the Supervisor password you need to replace the system board which kind of defeats your purpose.

Supervisor password

A Supervisor password protects the system information stored in the BIOS. The user must enter the Supervisor password in order to get access to the ThinkPad BIOS Setup Utility in order to change the system configuration. If the Supervisor password is forgotten there is no way to reset it to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a Supervisor password automatically sets the master Hard drive password. The following is the icon that comes up in the upper left corner if a Supervisor password is set:
A forgotten Supervisor password will prevent access to the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility. To regain access, the system will need to be serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.
