I have IBM 2628-DRU Think Pad A21m And this PC sets password for BIOS, and I can't use it, because I don't know the password


To reset the BIOS 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.

ThinkPad A21m type 2628


This is usually caused by one of three items.

1. The cdrom drive is failing

2. The hard drive is failing (it may say hdd 0)

3. The interface to those two items is failing

Consult your seller ASAP and check that he would accept a return. If it was bought "as is" then your are out of luck. So sorry for the bad news

Installing new Hard Drive Problems


i suspect you need both because the cd is not a bootable one. download a win 98 boot disk from www.bootdisks.com it will allow you to boot to dos.... then you change to the cd rom drive letter.. usually D: ... tho sometimes even X: and then type setup... that should start the restore.

Always shutdown my IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 PC Notebook


It must be a processor overheating problem, check the vents are not restricted and if the fan is always on or never comes on because of a faulty temp setting then theres a overheating problem and the processor will shut down before any damage.
