At the booting, (before it goes to read the hard drive for Windows), press the "Access IBM" blue key at upper left corner of the keyboard.

On most computers you can access the bios menu by tapping one of the Functions keys, usually its an even number most often f8, sometimes f4 or 2 and seldom f7. Hope it helps, please rate if helpful.

To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

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-

Hi I just got a used Thinkpad T60, and is requesting a password. Can you tell me how to change that


Try booting up in Safe Mode. Log in as administrator (try 'password' as the password), then open control panel (start>settings>control panel). Open the User Management tool, select the user that you want change and click change password. If you want to create a new user you can do that here to. Be sure to make the new user an Admin.

Laptop freezes at windows login screen


If it's not a hardware problem, then you can salvage this computer by installing Linux on it. Mandriva 2009.0 works fine
on a T42 Thinkpad, and it's not that difficult a transition from Windows.
