Lenovo T60 - Can't get beyond the the bios password prompt

I took my new Lenovo T60 out of the shipping box, powered it on and saw a lock icon. Is there a factory set password? I see nothing in the documentation other than the need to bring it to certified Lenovo repair.

    Lenovo laptop HDD locked/Sata port 0 locked, insydeh20 bios locked, can't go to boot selection(it brings me to the HDD prompt password again). help!


    Sorry, you're hosed. If you forgot your HDD password the only thing you can do is replace the drive and rebuild your S110. There is no way to remove or reset it without using the original password in the original motherboard. Period.
    If you're misinterpreting the screen information and it happens to be the bios user password that's forgotten it is possible to have an authorized Lenovo repair center reset it with adequate proof of ownership. Lenovo themselves will not do it. If it's the SVP password for the bios the only solution is to replace the motherboard. Period.

    Having passwords that can be reset like in the old days just by jumpering 2 wires defeats the purpose of having a password in the first place.

    Need to reset bios password on Daytona-a rev 3.3 mboard


    Enter the BIOS at power on, rather than booting windows, and go through the settings. Put in your old password and enter a new one as prompted on the screen.
    If you bought this used, and there is a password from a previous owner, you can go to the system board and remove the small jumper that maintains the password lock for the BIOS. This should allow you access to the BIOS if you're locked out by a previous owner's password.

    My laptop IBM Lenovo Thinkpad T60 of type:2008-AD7, S/N L3-C0670 06/07, seems to be locked at the very start when the power is turned on, it shows a lock and enquires a password from the early start. it...


    Hi,

    There is no default password on the T60.

    If you are seeing a lock symbol then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't 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 T60 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,

    Forgot cmos password after cearing cmos not able to boot from harddisk. Pls assist me how to remove cmos password of ibm T60 laptop


    I just helped a friend out with this exact issue on the same notebook. Here is the instructions (step by step...well 4 steps) that worked perfectly. What you are doing is using a backdoor password set up by IBM/Lenovo.

    Turn on your Thinkpad T60 computer.

  • Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.


  • Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start setup utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.


  • Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.

  • Hope this helps...

    I have i problem with my lenovo thinkpad t60, how do i remove the bios password in it?


    To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

    In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.
