You would need to get the administrator password to enable options. Either you can get it touch with the administrator of your company to help you with the password, or Google to find out how you can get one.

I forgot my password to log on to my account. I have an IBM thinkpad 240. It's at least 5 years old. Is there anyway to restore the factory settings.


I imagine you have Windows XP. If so, try this:
Start the computer in safe mode.
Choose the Administrator account. If your computer is like 90% of the computers I've seen, no one has password-protected this account.
Once in, go to the control panel and choose Users; From there, you can change your password to one you remember.
Next time don't forget it.

IBM R40 HOW ICAN UNLOCK THE PASSWORD


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and its difficult to break into its password.

Take care

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.

IBM Thinkpad


When you first start the machine, start pressing F8. It should go into safe mode. Safe mode looks different than the regular Windows mode, and there will be a screen with user account boxes, just like when you logged off in Windows. One box will have administrator, another will have whoever had the computer before, and there may be another with guest. Click on the administrator box, then open user accounts from the control panel. Then you can open the user account with the password and clear it. If you still can't get to safe mode let me know and we'll try a forceful way.

I forget my ibm thinkpad t22 power on password !!! pleas help


When it powers up, hit F8, go into safe mode, log in as Administrator (with NO password) - if this will let you in -

Then go into control panel, then users, then remove your password from your profile.

Reboot, and you will not need a password to get in.
