When you removed the MB battery,did you find the shorting linkJumper  and short it out(move it) to discharge the capacitors, before reinstalling the battery?

Entered built in HDD1 user password


as the bios was reset the harddrive password was removed from the bios memory.

To get the password unlocked you will need to remove the harddrive from the laptop, buy a adapter so you can connect it to your pc and then do a few things Il tell you about later if your going to do it.

otherwice you can take the harddrive to a shop to be unlocked / reset to defaults.

I accidently removed the cmos battery of ibm thinkpad t30. After that error 0271: time and date setting appear then power on password show up. I failed to get into bios to change the time and date setting...

Removing the BIOS battery will not remove the BIOS password because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip. The password can be retrieved with difficulty, it requires you to build an EEPROM chip reader. For instructions to remove this password, please click on this link :-

My ibm is lenovo t60 and i need bios password

I would tell you to clear the CMOS. But, on those laptops, they soldered a chip on dedicated to saving password information, etc.. You'll have to replace the motherboard. If the pc's functioning fine, you can use the "ThinkVantage" button to restore the factory settings.
