I suggest you give the laptop to someone how can do this because it is done by opening the laptop and moving some pins...
without the manual it will be very hard for me to explain. and those computers are really delicate.. so better someone else brake it for you and pay it than you brake it and pay it yourself

I have a IMB Note book and I forgot the power on password I put on it. I want to unlock it. Please tell me how.


If it's a "Power up" password this can be removed by briefly dosconnecting the cmos battery from the system board. If it is the "Supervisor" password either send to Lenovo for replacement system board and hard drive (not covered under warranty) or send to me and I will return unlocked :-) fixmythinkpad@btinternet.com Regards Paul.

IBM Thinkpad T-30 2366 QU-5 Padlock appears on scree. I cannot do anything. How is this unlocked? Please help.


You have a Power on Password. The correct password has to be entered before the laptop will bootup. The password is set to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop.
Did you purchase this laptop from someone? If so get the password from them. There is no backdoor password and the password is stored on an EEPROM chip so removing the BIOS battery will not reset the BIOS and remove the password.

Forgot password


Hello,

On the Thinkpad's, it's a fairly easy process to reset the passwords. Try the following steps and you should be able to access the computer...

1. Power off the lpatop.
2. Flip the laptop over and open the Memory cover. It should have the diagram of a Dimm on it.
3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
4. Remove the jumper, or whatever you used to short the password pads and put the cover back on the bottom of the laptop.
5. Power on the laptop and you should be fine.

This works great
Forgotten Power-on password
If the Power-on password is forgotten
and the Supervisor password is known,
simply go into the ThinkPad BIOS setup
utility and reset the Power-on password,
otherwise try the following:
Turn off the computer.
Remove the battery pack.
Remove the backup battery. This is
located under the battery.
Turn on the computer and wait until the
POST ends. After the POST ends, the
password prompt does not appear. The POP
has been removed.
Reinstall the backup battery and the
battery pack.
Note: Some ThinkPad systems have the
ability to reset the Power-on passwords
in the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility if a
Supervisor password has been set.
