How to brack bios password in my ibm r52


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.

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.

I need to clear my Bios Password for My IBM Thinkpad R52


OK, I posted this the other day, so for the benefit of those who missed it. "None" of these techniques will work on the R52, as it has a different chip. The above well intentioned solutions mentioned above will work with older models but not this machine as the bios chip has been changed. FYI

Re: power on + bios password


IBM uses a security chip on the motherboard that burns the password into it when a bios password is enabled. The only solution to getting around a bios password on an IBM is to replace the bios security chip or the motherboard. I've wrestled with this before, and believe me when I say it's a whole lot easier to replace the board. Do your best to remember!!!!!!!!
