When you turn the machine on, press the blue IBM button on the keyboard. This will bypass the normal boot up and let you into the BIOS.

When i powerd my thinkpad a31 2652 it prompts me with a passwword i think is a bios code


Actually its not a bios code. Its a password that was been setup during the accessing of its bios. There are two options in setting up such a thing. 1 is for the security of cannot accessing the bios and 2 for not accessing the computer when booting up. Well in your case it was setup in not accessing the computer when booting up. If you set this options definitely you know the password of it. Just type it in the password that you have setup. Then press enter.

I have an IBM Thinkpad A31 with a power-on password that prevents me from using the laptop. Do you have a solution to take off the password without buying parts at the local Radio Shack that need to be...


Is it a Bios Password or a Hard Drive Password???
If a bios pass... you need to find the CMOS battery (think it's under your keyboard on that model, though not sure offhand).. Remove the battery.. Make sure battery is removed and not plugged in.. THen Hold Down The Power On Button For 30 Seconds.. Reattach the CMOS battery..
Boot Up The Laptop..
If Still Pass Locked Then You Have A Security Chip... this is embedded onto the mainboard and You would then need to replace the board (unless you know someone who can remove it and reflash it)..

Laptop BIOS passwords are kept in a special password chip. On some laptops these chips are replaceable and there are a number of places you can buy this. PWcrack.com for one.
