This is a tough one! I will assume that you cannot get into the bios because it is locked or the hard drive? If you are able to get into the bios, then something can be done. You can just disable the security lock. More details below:

I usually alert my customers that they will have to purchase a new motherboard and hard drive (which we always find at a very reasonable rate on eBay). This is the easiest solution and sometimes the cheapest.

Another option would be to try a software such as this one:

Unlock the security chip for a ibm t 60 thinkpad


IBM-branded Thinkpad T60 laptops from Lenovo are mobile computing devices that feature a keyboard lock for data security. When the lock is enabled, pressing the keys on the keyboard does not result in input to the computer. The lock hampers attempts by an unauthorized user from gaining access to your computer and your files. Lock your Thinkpad using the Function key. The Function key used in conjunction with other keys on the keyboard expand the laptop's number of available features.

Locate the "Fn" key in the lower left corner of your Thinkpad keyboard. Locate the "F2" key in the upper left area of the keyboard. Press and hold the "Fn" key, then press the "F2" key to toggle the "Lock" feature. Release both keys. Hope this helps.

Hello visit the lenovo support site:

Lenovo has the support for ibm products.
The ibm site is just for servers.

My laptop IBM Lenovo Thinkpad T60 of type:2008-AD7, S/N L3-C0670 06/07, seems to be locked at the very start when the power is turned on, it shows a lock and enquires a password from the early start. it...


Hi,

There is no default password on the T60.

If you are seeing a lock symbol then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't 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 T60 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,

My ibm is lenovo t60 and i need bios password


I would tell you to clear the CMOS. But, on those laptops, they soldered a chip on dedicated to saving password information, etc.. You'll have to replace the motherboard. If the pc's functioning fine, you can use the "ThinkVantage" button to restore the factory settings.

IBM thinkpad t60 security ?


Ibm's are very difficult, when it comes to problems with the security chip. This chip's purpose is mainly for bios passwords. If you've never set a bios password then it should not take you to the security chip window. Since it is, I'm going to say the chip is malfunctioning. For this, you will need to contact IBM support.
