The reason that comes up is because the motherboard has a master password set on it and from my experience the hard drive may have a password set on it as well cause the hard drive and motherboard are linked to each other.

If the original owner can call IBM then they can get both passwords removed. If not then both the motherboard and hard drive will need to be replaced.

My father encountered this problem with a similar laptop. The only way to bypass it was to create a switch for something on the motherboard.

If you take out the CMOS battery and leave the laptop for a good 10 minutes to an hour, it should reset itself.

It's funny you don't know this, since you would be the one who password protected it.
