Hi,

Please follow the steps below to reset the lenovo to factory settings
Note: All your data will be lost. So keep that in mind.
So take the backup of your data first in a separate HDD or flash drive.

1. Switch off the Computer
2. Press the power button and then immediately start tapping f11 key on the top of your keyboard.
3. You will hear a beep sound and then stop pressing it.
4. You will get the screen says windows is loading files. Wait untill it finishes.
5. Select the default language which is US and Click on next .
6. Enter your login credentials (username and password) if you use to login to the windows.
7. Then you will get the system Recovery Options screen where you need to select the last option "Lenovo Product Recovery"
8. Again preferred language will be English US and hit Next.
9. Accept the terms and conditions and hit next and then hit Yes on the warning.
10. Then it will start resetting the Lenovo Think pad to the factory default with no previous data. Same as when you purchased it.

If you have any query you can ask before restoring the Computer.
Hope this helps you. Reply if that fixes your issue.

SOURCE: lenovo thinkpad R61 audio driver not working

There are audio drives for this laptop, they will work for Windows, XP, Vista, & Windows 2000. They are on this site:

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67856.html#audio

Just install and the laptop should recognize them. It if doesn't then that means the onboard video is bad.

Were you able to fix it? I took out the fan and cleaned it with a toothbrush (didn't disassemble it). If it worked, can you provide some insight into what you did?

SOURCE: Reset Supervisor paaword Thinkpad R61.

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 and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

I forgotten the Supervisor password, so i want to reset it if possible.


Hi, you have a couple of options to reset your Thinkpad if the Supervisor password is lost. One is to send it to Lenovo who will replace the system board and hard drive, the other is to send to me and I will remove the password and return. Regards Paul - fixmythinkpad@btinternet.com
