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. Otherwise you can check out theses 2 tutorials, with few skill you can make it yourself: -http://www.allservice.ro/forum/viewtopic.php?t=47&start=0 -http://marc.info/?l=full-disclosure&m=111234041830357&w=2 Unfortunalty, no other ways other round. Thanks and have a nice day J-

If this is a power on password, it is a BIOS password. To reset this, you need to open the laptop's case and look for the CMOS battery. It looks like a watch battery but is is bigger. remove it then put it back to reset your BIOS.

Hope this helps.

I have a windows xp ibm thinkpad that says


havent opend one of those yet... Does it give you a code, something like a HEXADECIMAL code of some sort, if it does there are DOS programs that can be used to find the password or reset it.
other wise there is the option of opining the NB and removing the CMOS battery wicth should reset system. This I would not advise to you if you dont have a lot of expierince with Tech work.
How ever if you do decide to do this, please read up on Google about reset CMOS on that specific model, some models will lock untill it recieves a code that only IBN should have...

Hope it helps

The Power on Password is stored on the 24RF08 EEPROM chip and there are no back door passwords available.
You can remove this password but you need some electronic skills to do this.

IBM thinkpad T41 -> get


Hi,

The IBM Thinkpad has a very strong security system.

If you are seeing a lock symbol when booting then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't remember it or guess it (try "password", "admin", "pass", etc) then you need to find the person that set the supervisor password.

Once the supervisor password is set the T41 is very well protected and it can't be reset by removing the laptop battery or CMOS battery.

There is a way to read the password from the protection chip but this is very complicated and requires taking the laptop apart and building your own chip reader.

The instructions for doing this are are:

Hope this helps,

When i turn on my emp thinkpad it's all black and on the top it says password but i dont know it.


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.

ThinkPad G40 is locked up


Oops, straight from the manual for your laptop...

Problem: I forgot my password.
Solution: If you forgot your power-on password, you must take your computer to an IBM reseller or marketing representative to have the password canceled. If you forgot your hard disk password, IBM will not reset your password or recover data from the hard disk. You must take your computer to an IBM reseller or an IBM marketing representative to have the hard disk drive
replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service. If you forgot your supervisor password, IBM will not reset your password. You must take your computer to an IBM reseller or IBM marketing representative to have the system board replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service.

Sorry to see that... Good luck.

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.
