Where do I find out how to use a IBM 2620 Thinkpad?

I bought a used IBM Thinkpad at an auction with no user manual. I know nothing about Thinkpads and when I turn it on it seems to work fine, but loads a screen for a company and I can't get it off or do anything with it. Can these be used as a laptop or is there any way to download a user manual to help me, or have I just bought something I can't use? It is a IBM 2620 D50 IBM Thinkpad.

Sell the computer and go out and buy a dog. You'll be far happier.

I have an IBM thinkpad x41 and it comes to the Windows xp screen needing a password and I dont know the password can someone help me?

You can use Ophcrack, an open source software. You don't need any access to Windows to be able to recover your lost passwords. Simply visit the site, download the free ISO image, burn it to a CD and boot from the CD. The Ophcrack program starts, locates the Windows user accounts, and proceeds to recover (crack) the passwords - all automatically.

Here is the link to download you ISO file to burn to a cd.

Or use Another computer by installing the exe file and make a cd for your recovery:

Check if you have any button on panel says about to lock the keys and mouse? Use your manual book if you have one. Lenovo has got this buttons that locks the keys and mouse to prevent unautorized use while you are away. Possible located next to the audio or power button.

IBM sold off it's notebook line to LENOVO. The Thinkpads are excellent business machines and for the price of a Macbook that is dual-bootable, you can really do the Thinkpad up nicely. If he was going to college for a design or music or something like that I would go with the Macbook. Since he is going for business, go with the Thinkpad.

I bought a used thinkpad i am locked out

I have had to retrieve the BIOS password from one of these before. It is not an easy thing to get to. You have to first
  • Build a special 9-pin Serial cable using parts you can find at Radio Shack
  • Dismantle the laptop
  • find the correct BIOS chip,
  • Solder a couple wires to the correct pins of the BIOS chip (without getting solder on the other pins, or damaging something)
  • Hook it up to another computer via serial port
  • Do a dump of the information stored on the BIOS chip
  • Use a hex-reader to decipher the information and display the password within.
Here is a link to a site that shows you in detail how to accomplish this. It does work, and I've successfully used the linked method to unlock a X41 of my own.
