It seems to have a password set for that hard disk. Try using another hard disk. If you have the same issue, then there is some sort of password set in the BIOS.

SOURCE: Removing CMOS battery on ibm r50e is not solving the pass problem

Removing battery or resetting BIOS with jumper will not help. You should call IBM for support on this issue. All thinkpads have a three year warranty, with either return to base or on-site service. Since the R50e is a recent model, you should have no problem getting it serviced directly by IBM. Toll Free: 1-800-IBM-SERV (1-800-426-7378)

SOURCE: IBM Thinkpad will not hold date & time.

Replace the backup battery and run BIOS Setup Utility to reset the time and date. This will resolve the issue.

SOURCE: GOOD MORNING SIR / MAAAM..

It sounds as though your computer has the wrong time in the CMOS. The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductors) is the chip that holds the basic startup information for the BIOS, system and its peripherals while the system is turned on and off.

If you can get into the BIOS check the date and time settings and make sure they are correct.

It may also be a case of the CMOS Battery going out. When this happens your computer will tend to not keep the correct time. They are cheap and relatively easy to replace. Before buying a new battery you can try to take it out and let it sit for about 10 minutes or so to reset the CMOS and then go put the battery back in and go into the BIOS and reset the clock.

Hopefully taking the battery out or replacing it will get past your lock icon asking for the password. If not then you may have to find out the manufacturer of your computer's motherboard to see if there is a common password to get past the lockout. Since it's a laptop then it should be easier to find this code based on the manufacturer.

Unlock password bios


Hi,

To unlock the bios password on your laptop, you will need to remove the cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios password will be reset, and fix the problem.

Take care.

Replacing the oroginal memory


Hi, if your PC is a IBM ThinkPad, you can lift the keyboard by unlocking both latches on the side of the computer (The same latches you use to open the screen) and then lifting the board in the same way as the LCD screen.
To access the memory you probably has to remove a sticker, some screws or even the Hard Disk Drive.
Tell us what model of notebook you have.
