The BIOS password is configured from the BIOS setup and this password is stored on an EEPROM chip. There is no backdoor password available and IBM/Lenevo support say the motherboard needs to be replaced. Also removing the BIOS battery to discharge the BIOS and reset it to the default settings will not allow you to bypass this password.
There is a way to crack the password but you need electronic skills, electronic components and several programs plus a working computer to carry out this task.

CPU Speed showed in My PC Lower than real one.


Check your CPU out on CPU WORLD, some of those older intel processors has a speed switch on them. You just enabled it it the bios but its not apparent until you start taxing the CPU.

Locked r30 diplays locked symbol can't do a thing


Does this laptop belong to you or you purchased it? If so you need to contact that person for the password or ask for a refund.

This ThinkPad laptop has a Power on Password. This password is enabled to prevent unauthorized access to this laptop.
This password is configured from the BIOS and is stored on an EEPROM chip (ATMEL 24RF08) and removing the BIOS battery to reset the BIOS to the factory defaults will not remove this password.

There are no backdoor passwords available. IBM state the fix is a replacement motherboard.

My thinkpad (X60s) will not start... when I try to start it, a lock icon shows up on the screen and no key seems to work...


This is a power on password set in bios. The keys appear not to work because it does not show anything you type. If it is a lock icon in the top right corner of the screen with a cursor next to it that is your problem. And we are not sure if there is a global passwork for the thinkpad, for this you would have to call IBM

Processor speed loss


It's possible that the XP is using the extra resource or processor usage, and there isn't anything that you can do. However, It's also possible that this machine was configurated for 2000, and that it just needs drivers for XP. You can start by going to IBM's support site and doing a bios flash to the most recent bios, and checking for a chip set driver update, patch, or for for XP. Also check for any processor speed stepping drivers or updated drivers. Try this and let me know.

Your limited with the T20 series, the biggest you can go is 1ghz. Try the Pentium M chip, make sure that it's the same mhz (frequency) that's in it now, the board frequency matches the processor frequency. (either a 100 mhz or 133 mhz, you can tell by what memory it uses PC100 or PC133)
