    We are not allowed to give that information. The password has been set for security purposes and we have no way of knowing if you are the rightful owner.

You could open up the R51 and remove the CMOS battery. This would reset the password.

Here is a link I found that allows one to hack the BIOS password:

My hp dv6 says enter adminstrator password or power up password then says system disable


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

KEYBOARD NOT FUNCTIONING AND CONTINOUSLY BEEPING SOUNDS ON IBM THINKPAD R51 LAPTOP


Could be the keyboard has shorted out, maybe something was spilled on it? You can either get a cheap replacement keyboard from ebay (be sure to match the make/model & size) or you can just plug a usb keyboard in & use that. Once into windows go to device manager (right click My Computer on Desktop & click Properties, Hardware) & disable the IBM onboard keyboard.

I have a toshiba laptop that I have had cleaned by a friend. now it requires a pass word and mine does not work. howdo I set it back to manufacturer standards?


Ask your friend if he has put the password. Another option is try go to CMOS setup if you can & disable the option of password. But this seems unlikely. Open the laptop if you know how to open it. Locate for the reset switch, it can be found below keyboard. It can be a reset switch or just put a jumper across it for few seconds & your laptop will reset. If there is nothing like this, locate CMOS battery. Remove it for about half a minute & put it back.
