Per Lenovo Support (they purchased IBM thinkpad a couple years ago)
ote: Do Not Forget Your Supervisor Password! If you forget your Supervisor password, there is no way to reset your password to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a supervisor password automatically sets the hard drive password. If you do not remember your supervisor password you must have the system serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.

This ThinkPad id locked with a POWER ON PASSWORD, this is diffucult to remove and there are no back door passwords you can use to unlock this computer.
There is a way to remove this password, but it rquires building an EEPROM reader and attaching it to your ThinkPad. For details please click on this link :-

I opened my emp x3 because it wont turn on. there is some kind of strip that runs from the cover and seems to connect to the main board but it is disconnected, is that the problem? Where would I connect...


The wiring strip you are referring to runs from the control board on the top of the projector to a slot connector on the big circuit board below. That connector is on the edge of the big board facing the front of the projector, about two inches from the left (when facing the projector front). You'll know which one it is because it has black piece on top of it that pulls up. To reconnect the strip, pull up the black piece and slide the blue bottom part of the strip in the slot opening on the front of the connector. Then push the black piece back down.

My ibm thinkpad r-52 is locked with bios password.how can i remove that .i dont know the password.plz help me mohitagrawal08@gmail.com


Please note that Thinkpad stores the password in a special security chip which is accessed during boot time.

The only option I know to reset BIOS password in a Thinkpad is to disassemble the system and then use the steps mentioned in the following link

How clear power on password in laptop


Hi,
You have 3 choice (i mean, thats all i know:) )

1: Get a new BIOS
2: Get the password from latest user (dont know if laptop yours or not)
3: Get the BIOS Flashed (Which is costly)

There is no way to unlock it without open it ,sorry.
Good luck....

I turn on my lap top HP Pavillion 2000 and all i get is the lights on the top of the keyboard and the screen remains BLACK, it was working fine last nite. I dont know what to do.


Hi,
Pull out the battery and try to boot it on AC power only, if it boots up turn it back off reinsert the battery and try to boot again, if it does not boot then they maybe a problem with the battery.
