Hi you may have tried this. Remove the battery and power lead and leave for about a week, depends on how good the cmos battery is. Hopefully after this time the cmos battery has died and all bios settings will have returned to default settings. The time period is wholly dependant on the cmos battery. Remember to only use your battery to use as you do not want to recharge your internal battery.
I have supplied a link to the website that may help. Good luck and let me know how you get on.

How do i unlock my thinkpad T60


How can you NOT know how to unlock your own laptop?

Perhaps you need to consider a search for the terms 'reset thinkpad T60'

Resetting without the required password or thumbscan means youd wipe the data too.

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...
