After starting my computer it goes into normal setup and then I only have a blue screen...no cursor no icons no Ibm map background, etc. I've tried the safe mode, safe mode with networking, last good startup, and normal setup...they all go to the plain blue screen and I can' t get any further.

How to Reset an IBM ThinkPad Power On Password Using Hardware
If you cannot boot the ThinkPad, you will have to reset the IBM ThinkPad password via hardware.
If only the power-on password is set, do the following to remove the power-on password.
Power off the computer
Remove the DIMM cover on the bottom side of the computer.
Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
Under the short-circuit condition, power on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The power-on password is removed.
Reinstall the DIMM cover.
If both the power-on password and the supervisor password are set, do the following to remove the passwords:
Power on the computer by pressing and holding F1.
Enter the supervisor password. The Easy-Setup menu appears.
Click on the Password icon.
Click on the Power on icon.
Enter the supervisor password and press the Space bar.
Press Enter twice.
Click on Exit; then click on Restart.
