F you cannot boot the ThinkPad, you will have to reset the IBM ThinkPad password via hardware.

If only the power-on password is set, do the following to remove the power-on password.

1. Power off the computer
2. Remove the DIMM cover on the bottom side of the computer.
3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
4. Under the short-circuit condition, power on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The power-on password is removed.
5. Reinstall the DIMM cover.

If both the power-on password and the supervisor password are set, do the following to remove the passwords:

1. Power on the computer by pressing and holding F1.
2. Enter the supervisor password. The Easy-Setup menu appears.
3. Click on the Password icon.
4. Click on the Power on icon.
5. Enter the supervisor password and press the Space bar.
6. Press Enter twice.
7. Click on Exit; then click on Restart.

Please rate my response.

I want to boot from DVD for Notebook Acer extensa 4230


Before Windows boots, determine which keyboard command you need to type to enter the "setup" or BIOS. Hit that key and it should get you into the BIOS. Once in the BIOS, go to the boot priority settings and set the DVD to boot first. Normally the harddrive is first.

I forget my passport


I guess you are saying that you forget your password ...Well..., if you are talking about the user password..to log into windows this will lead you to re-install the windows and will work ...if you want to keep all the files ..choose only to repair the operation system and do not format the C drive during the operation ...
If you are talking about the Bios passworkd..this will be a little tricky ...and the only thing that will help you get rid of it is to open the laptop and remove the bios battery for 5 seconds..
