Re: password lossed

Try starting the machine in safe mode. (tap the "F8" key while booting, and select safe mode.) When the welcome screen comes up, there is often a user called Administrator and it most often does not have a password. If you don't use the welcome screen type "Administrator" in the user name box and click OK without a password.
Failing that, you can use a boot disc such as "UBCD4Win"(google it) to start up the machine and use one of the pass word tools to either change the password or create a new user with a new password. Then when you restart the machine normally, you should be able to log on.

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.
