You must log in as the administrator to change the supervisor password. Otherwise check with the PC vendor.

SOURCE: supervisor password...

I'm not sure what is meant by it being on top of the bios password, I'll need more info.

However, A bios password can be reset by removing the coin cell battery for 15 seconds from underside of most laptops in a compartment with a cover removable by a screw(s).

If the password is not part of the bios it is on the hard drive. The only way I no of wiping out an operating system password such as in windows xp is to do a fressh install of the operating system wiping out the old one.

Other than that the only other place I could think of there being a password is on the boot sector of the hard drive and formatting the boot sector and repartitioning the hard drive wiping out all data can remove any password on the hard drive.

When i turn on my emp thinkpad it's all black and on the top it says password but i dont know it.


Per Lenovo Support (they purchased IBM thinkpad a couple years ago)
ote: Do Not Forget Your Supervisor Password! If you forget your Supervisor password, there is no way to reset your password to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a supervisor password automatically sets the hard drive password. If you do not remember your supervisor password you must have the system serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.

Supervisor password


A Supervisor password protects the system information stored in the BIOS. The user must enter the Supervisor password in order to get access to the ThinkPad BIOS Setup Utility in order to change the system configuration. If the Supervisor password is forgotten there is no way to reset it to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a Supervisor password automatically sets the master Hard drive password. The following is the icon that comes up in the upper left corner if a Supervisor password is set:
A forgotten Supervisor password will prevent access to the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility. To regain access, the system will need to be serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.
