Ibm x41 will not boot says boot overload


Have you tried booting in Safe Mode?

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

4-Click "Yes" and wait for the BIOS to load. Type in the current BIOS password for the IBM X41 and press Enter.5-Navigate over to the IBM's "Security" heading by tapping the right arrow key twice. Scroll down to the "Supervisor Password" listing and press "F5."6-Type the IBM's current BIOS password and hit Enter. Leave the next field blank if you want to completely remove the BIOS password, or instead type in a new password to replace the old one. Press Enter.7-Press "Escape" and then highlight "Restart" and press F5. Navigate to "Save changes and Restart" and press Enter.

    According to Lenovo support, error 0211 is a keyboard error - keyboard not working. Ebay sell replacement keyboards for £20 - £30 for your x41 which should hopefully fix this error after fitting.

    Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet security chip. lost bios boot password


    I have had to retrieve the BIOS password from one of these before. It is not an easy thing to get to. You have to first
    • Build a special 9-pin Serial cable using parts you can find at Radio Shack
    • Dismantle the laptop
    • find the correct BIOS chip,
    • Solder a couple wires to the correct pins of the BIOS chip (without getting solder on the other pins, or damaging something)
    • Hook it up to another computer via serial port
    • Do a dump of the information stored on the BIOS chip
    • Use a hex-reader to decipher the information and display the password within.
    Here is a link to a site that shows you in detail how to accomplish this. It does work, and I've successfully used the linked method to unlock a X41 of my own.
