Question about Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC

1 Answer

Changed Supervisor's password on X60 and can't get in now.

I was about to put a new build on my X60 laptop, then I decided to change the bios and hard drive password. I was able to do so with the Supervisor's password, but when I tried to change the Bios password, it told me "Invalid format" then the laptop rebooted. I tried logging back on but none of the passwords are working now.

    I'm sure there is a fix without having to take it to have the system board replaced.

Back up your most important data to an external storage device in case anything goes wrong while changing the BIOS settings. Remove any disc that is currently inserted in the IBM Thinkpad X41's disc drive.
2-Shut off the Thinkpad X41 laptop. Turn the laptop back on and wait for the "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button" message to appear on the screen.
3-Tap the blue Access IBM button at the top of the keyboard. Click the "Access BIOS" button when the "Rescue and Recovery" menu appears.
4-Click "Yes" and wait for the BIOS to load. Type in the current BIOS password for the IBM X41 and press Enter.5-Navigate over to the IBM's "Security" heading by tapping the right arrow key twice. Scroll down to the "Supervisor Password" listing and press "F5."6-Type the IBM's current BIOS password and hit Enter. Leave the next field blank if you want to completely remove the BIOS password, or instead type in a new password to replace the old one. Press Enter.7-Press "Escape" and then highlight "Restart" and press F5. Navigate to "Save changes and Restart" and press Enter.

    I put new harddrive in lenovo x60 while ruuning setting for xp installation .set up loading file then setup is starting window i receive following messege stop : 0x0000007B


    I think 7b stopcode is hardware failure. Which means your hard drive is bad.

    First I would try getting into your BIOS,(pressing F2 or DELETE or something upon turning your PC on) and finding a setting that says "SATA operation".... i think. You are looking for something that gives you 2 choices... either 'AHCI' or 'ATA'. It may not be called SATA operation, but it will definitely say 'AHCI' and 'ATA' as the two choices. Move the selection to whatever one it is not set on. Then try booting normally, or even re-installing again.

    Try that BIOS setting first, that may be the only issue.

    Good Luck.

    How to remove the BIOS Supervisor Password:

    Open all covers and openings. Remove hard drive and battery. Remove bottom of notebook. Many many tiny screws.
    Now look towards the rear of the notebook. You will see 2 plugs both have a red and black wires. The one with the much smaller wires and connector is the BIOS battery. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and remove this plug.

    Leave it off for 5-15 minutes.

    Leave the BIOS battery plug off. Replace the laptop's main battery. Leave the hard drive out. Turn the unit over and turn it on.
    Press F2 when the screen comes up. POOF! NO PASSWORD!

    Go to Security and disable the password. Save configuration. Turn off the notebook. Replace the small connector. Turn it back over and turn it back on. Press F2 and verify that there is no password. Go to Security and Disable the password again. Save the configuration.
    Put the bottom back on. You're done.

    NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS!!!
    Your hard drive is now dead. Replace it. When a supervisor password is used it locks the hard drive to that password. There is NO WAY to recover the hard drive. It is called an ATA security password. Without the ATA password the hard drive is completely useless.

    I need to remove my bios password


    You can try the old parallel port dongle trick.

    Do a search on google for the Toshiba Password Removal. If you are enclined enough you can build your own parallel port key that will wipe the password out.

    If you would rather buy a premade port key, search on eBay for something like this -

    I found a schematic once online, a long while back when I had the need, and built my own out of spare parts in my shop. Worked great... only had to use it once for a customers laptop. But I still hang on to it just in case someone else comes along. There is also a USB version I believe.
