Question about IBM ThinkPad Computers & Internet
Security chip status post can't get past this
Sometimes (rarely) laptops need a bit of a kick to get them going! When confronted with this particular issue, I power off the laptop, disconnect the power supply, remove the battery and discharge any residual charge by pressing the power on switch for a couple of seconds.
Replace the battery, re-attach the power and reattempt the normal power on cycle. See it that kicks it into action!

Are you referring to the Atmel EEPROM 24RF08 chip?
If so, in the T40 Thinkpad it is under the touchpad, I suspect on the T43 in may also in the same location.

Ibm's are very difficult, when it comes to problems with the security chip. This chip's purpose is mainly for bios passwords. If you've never set a bios password then it should not take you to the security chip window. Since it is, I'm going to say the chip is malfunctioning. For this, you will need to contact IBM support.

This is a common problem with laptops, unfortunately, there is no real solution of fixing the touch pad.
The best solution is to use an external usb mouse.
I recomend an optical mouse, they cost about 5 US dollars.

Hi, If you are talking about the Boot, HDD, Bios password, then the only one way to recover it is to implement a chip on the systemboard to shorcut the protection or to contact Lenovo for a systemboard replacement. Unfortunalty, no other ways other round. Thanks and have a nice day J-

Cleaning the fan may help. I use a vacuum cleaner and hold the pipe against the air inlet of the computer and then against the exhaust outlet. That clears the fluff quite easily.
Hope this helps.
