Question about IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook
The password requested is the Power on Password and it is stroed on the AMETEL 24RF08 EEPROM chip.
The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration and removing the BIOS battery wil reset the BIOS to the default settings but will not remove the password.
There are no backdoor passwords available and IBM say the fix is replacing the motherboard.
You can hack into the EEPROM to retrieve the password but it requires electronic knowledge to build an electronic interface and running a program on a working computer.
