There are three passwords used at a typical customer site:
the Setup password, the HDD password, and the Power
On password.
Ÿ Power On password:
1. Power off the computer.
20 ThinkPad 390E 2. Remove the battery pack and AC Adapter.
3. Remove the backup battery (RTC) for 20
minutes or use a screwdriver to touch the
backup battery (RTC) for 1 second.
4. Put back the backup battery (RTC).
5. Power on the computer and wait until POST
ends.
6. Verify that the password prompt does not
appear.
Ÿ Supervisor and HDD passwords:
The Supervisor password and Hard Disk password
(Hard Disk1 and Hard Disk2) are security features
that are used to protect the system and the hard disk
drive data from unauthorized access. No overriding
capability is provided, so it cannot be replaced if they
are forgotten. If the customer forgets the Supervisor
password, the system board must be replaced. If the
customer forgets the Hard Disk password, the hard
disk drive must be replaced.

Can you describe the display problem that you refer to? While it is possible that the motherboard is the problem, without knowing details of the problem it is hard to say how to fix it.
Thanks,
Dan

So wait, its asking for a BIOS/CMOS password? If so, one thing you can try to do is remove the CMOS battery. The battery is about the size of a nickel and can be found on the bottom of your laptop. You'll have to unscrew a few things to find it. Once you do, take extreme precaution when touching anything inside the computer. I would recommend getting an Anti-Static Wrist strap (sold at Best Buy). Once you locate the CMOS battery, take it out. Keep it out for about a minute and then put it back in and close everything back up. When you do this it usually resets the BIOS/CMOS password if there is one. Hope this helps!

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.

How did you set the password?
Did you buy this laptop from someone?
If you did you need to get the password from that person.
There is no backdoor password available and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the passowrd because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
You need the password to boot up the laptop and then into the BIOS configuration to remove the power on password.

No network driver installed on my IBM 390x 2626-lou. Where con I get the driverdownload and remember I cant connect the computer to the internet.


do you have a friend or neighbor with internet connection? if so, then ask them to go to the IBM site and download the driver to a flash drive or a CD. you will be able to install it from either device. you may need your model number and serial number to get the right driver.
if your local library allows downloads, then you can search IBM yourself and load it to a Flash drive.

Well, Maybe your driver is not installed. With windows XP

1. Right click "my computer"

2. click properties

3. click hardware

4 click device manager.

see if there are any big yellow question marks, if so you need to load drivers.

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-
