I FORGET MY IBM THINKPAD LENOVO T60 BIOS PASSWORD, NOW HOW I ENTER IN BIOS. PLZ GUIDE ME. S.VIRANI


Hi


Remove to your BIOS password download the CmosPwd, and follow the mention below instruction.
Typical Usage for DOS and all Windows users:

1) Identify your BIOS manufacturer (usually displayed at boot-up)

2) Start in DOS, or start a DOS session in Windows 95/98/ME. For Windows NT or Windows 2000 boot from a DOS or Windows 95/98 boot disk (you can find boot disks at www.AnswersThatWork.com), and run CMOSPWD from your boot floppy (or another floppy).

3) C: [Enter] cd CMOSPWD [Enter]

4) Type CMOSPWD at the DOS prompt and press Enter.

5) CMOSPWD will display a list of possibilities. Use the possibilities itemised against your BIOS manufacturer. Remember :

a) For AWARD BIOSes, use the Numeric Keypad (with NumLock ON).
b) AWARD 4.50PG BIOS always accepts "AWARD_SW", or "d8on", or "589589".
c) Old Phoenix BIOSes will accept "phoenix".

6) If the standard method does not work, then try to kill the CMOS password with CMOSPWD /K (and press Enter), and then see if you can get into the CMOS without a password. If you can, you successfully "killed" the old CMOS password. DO NOT KILL THE CMOS ON LAPTOPS!

Using Recovery CD's to Start Over!

***WARNING: ALL FILES WILL BE LOST WHEN PERFORMING THIS!!! PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL FILES ARE BACKED UP!!!***


1. If you have all of the Recovery Disks (Operating System Disk, Software Disk, Driver Disk) shipped with the system, you need to first put the Operating System Recovery disk in the CD or DVD ROM (the one that says the Windows Operating System on it).

2. Start the computer and you should see "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD...

NOTE:
If the Install Windows page does not appear and you are not asked to press a key to start (or "boot") from CD or DVD, you might have to specify that your computer use its CD or DVD drive as the startup device. This means that you need to set the CD or DVD drive to be the first startup device in the basic input/output system (BIOS). Occasionally, as with HP Pavilion laptops, you can press F9 or some other Function key to designate a temporary boot device. This key may different between systems.
Newer computers usually display a startup (or boot) menu. On the startup menu, select "BIOS setup," or "BIOS settings," or something similar.

Warning

Updating the BIOS is an advanced procedure, and if an error occurs, your computer could stop working. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions exactly.

Note
Procedures for updating the BIOS vary depending on the manufacturer. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the computer manufacturer's website. Each computer has its own startup (or boot) options and access to the BIOS setup. If your computer does not have a startup menu, look for a message that says "BIOS setup," "BIOS settings," or something similar, and then press the appropriate key when prompted to display the BIOS setup screen.
The BIOS setup screen appears. On the BIOS setup screen, select the option called "Boot order," or something similar. Select your CD or DVD drive as the first startup device. Press F10 to save and exit BIOS
Restart your computer, and then start Windows from the installation CD or DVD as previously described.

3. Depending on the type of Operating System you have, the next steps will be different. For Windows XP, a blue screen will come up and drivers will be loading to begin the installation process. For Windows Vista and Windows 7, when the Install Windows screen comes up follow all the prompts as per your needs. The installation, especially for Windows 7, is very straight forward.

4. A screen should come up now preparing the Windows Installation. Simply follow the prompts, making sure to wipe the previous windows installation completely before continuing with the current install.

5. When the installation is complete you should verify that all the drivers were loaded completely. For Windows XP go to Start>>Control Panel>>System>>Device Manager and make sure no yellow circles with exclamation marks are showing. For Windows Vista and 7 go to the Start menu (6c22571.gif )>>Control Panel>>Device Manager.

6. If so, you will have to go to your manufacturer website to download the missing drivers. Go to the support section and put in your express service code or model number, or use the auto-detect feature if it is available and it will tell you what you have available to download.
When in doubt: download and install everything. The worst that can happen is it will say it isn't compatible or already exists and won't install. Also ensure you run ALL windows updates, even optional ones. The only exception to this is with Windows 7 updates. A whole bunch of language packs are available which do not have to be installed, unless you need them! There should be approximately 34 of these language packs.

Hope this helps. I will include more specific information as I come across it.

Good Luck and as always, if you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself please consult a professional.

My computer is restart automatically when i am on my work


This issue could be caused by any of the below possibilities.
  1. Software issue or error.
  2. Hardware issue or error.
  3. Heat related issue.
  4. Computer virus.
  5. Issue with operating system.
Answer:Software issue or error
Errors generated by software programs can cause a computer to reboot unexpectedly or without warning. If you are running Windows XP see the below section "For Windows XP users" before continuing.
If you are not running Windows XP or following the below steps still cause your computer to reboot without warning. Boot your computer into Safe Mode, and let the computer run in Safe Mode. Additional information and help with getting into Safe Mode can be found on document CHSAFE.
If the computer is still rebooting in Safe Mode the issue is likely not software related but something else, skip to the next section. If the computer is not rebooting in Safe Mode it is likely you have software related issue. We would recommend you run through the basic troubleshooting section for your operating system.
For Windows XP users
Windows XP is designed to automatically reboot each time an error occurs such as a BSoD. Although this may be nice for errors that do not occur often, users who have a re-occurring error may wish to identify the error to troubleshoot it. Below are the steps on how this feature can be disabled and enabled in Windows XP.
  1. From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
  2. Click the Properties option.
  3. In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
  4. In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
  5. In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
  6. Click Ok.
Now if the computer generates and error it should not automatically restart and enable you to display any errors your computer may be experiencing.
Hardware issue or error
Any failing hardware component in your computer could cause your computer to unexpectedly generate an error and/or reboot without warning. If you have recently attempted to add a new hardware device, remove that device to make sure it is not causing your issues.
Make sure you are not encountering any hardware conflicts by viewing Device Manager for errors. Additional information about Device Manager can be found on our Device Manager page.
New drivers can also cause this issue, if you have recently performed any hardware driver updates you may wish to try an earlier version of the drivers. Additional information and help with computer drivers can be found on our drivers page.
If you have updated drivers and removed any hardware that could be causing this issue and continue to experience random reboots, it's possible that the memory is bad in the computer. Additional information about testing computers memory can be found on document CH000708.
Finally, hardware devices that are not installed properly in the computer can also cause random reboots. Make sure all the cables and expansion cards are connected properly to the computer. The best way to determine this is to disconnect and reconnect all cables and expansion cards.
Computer virus
Computer viruses such as the blaster virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted.
If you believe your computer may be infected with a virus or are uncertain if your computer is infected with a virus make sure your virus scanner definitions are up to date. Additional information about checking this can be found in document CH000533.
Heat related issue
Many computer today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets to hot. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer.
You can first start by verifying the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and seeing if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer you will need to either open the computer and make sure the fan are working (processor fan and case fan) and/or if your BIOS monitors the RPM of the fans enter BIOS and make sure the BIOS does not report any errors.
Users may also be able to determine how hot their computer is by onboard thermal sensors, if your computer comes equipped with these sensors make sure your CPU is not running to hot, additional information about how hot your CPU should be running can be found on document CH000687.
Issue with operating system
If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case please try the below steps.
  1. Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting. If you are not familiar with how to enter CMOS please read through document CH000192.
  2. After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the computer sit.
If the computer does not reboot while letting the computer sit in CMOS it is likely that you are in fact experiencing an issue with Microsoft Windows and it is recommend that if you have followed all of the above recommendations that you reinstall your version of Microsoft Windows. Additional information about erasing the computer and starting over can be found on document CH000186.

Iam using IBM computer with pentium3 when i turn on the computer this message showing OPERATING SYSTEM ERROR LOADED HOW CAN I SOLVE THIS PROBLEM


This issue may occur if your computer BIOS does not correctly manage or support the capacity of the hard disk on which you are installing Windows XP.

I have a solution for you.

I may involve changing your BIOS or complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings or that may require you to make physical changes to your computer hardware. Incorrect changes to the BIOS of your computer may create serious problems.

Password


If it's an operating system password, then press F8 at start up to enter safe mode, log in as administrator, from here you can go in and clear user passwords. If it's a bios password, it can't be cleared in a Thinkpad. If you have any trouble or if it's a bios password let me know.
