Question about IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook
Will not boot from hard drive and forgot bios password on ibm r50e laptopto change boot sequence.
Yikes. You've set a password on the BIOS and don't remember it?
Well, most manufacturers set a "backdoor" password on the bios that will allow you to get in. It used to be the backdoor PW for IBM was "merlin" but that may no longer be the case. If you absolutely cannot get in, then your option is to open the case to the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery for about 15 seconds and then reconnect it. That will clear the CMOS to the factory defaults.
I wish you well with this.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

I ever forgot my windows password and try to search for help on google. I've tried a couple of free password recovery utilities. The free software can help you, but you have to learn some computer skills and waste a lot time on learning. If you want to save more time, maybe Google third party password recovery tool or Google Window Password Seeker can help you.
