Re: i have a laptop ibm 380ed
You will need to use a password reset tool such as Winternals ERD commander to reset the password. the only other option is to reload the operating system. it is important to use a password that you will remember or write it down. BPCS

Hi there, You need to make sure your laptop meet the minimum hardware requirements for windows XP . (see below) I believe your system has a Pentium MMX 166 MHZ processor which will not be able to run XP properly. But that's not all, You also need to make sure IBM Lenovo provides drivers for all the hardware on your 380ED, which I don't believe it does.
Minimum hardware requirements
Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
Keyboard and a Microsoft Mouse or some other compatible pointing device
Video adapter and monitor with Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution
Unfortunalty this is an hardware failure there is nothing you can do.
If you are under warranty i suggest you to contact the reseller/manufacturer to get a replacement units, it should be no problem at all this is a common issue on batteries.
Thanks and have a nice day
From what you are stating it seems like your backlight in your lcd needs to be replaced. Plug an external monitor up to your laptop. Press the fn & f key (the one with the picture of a monitor in it.) Your diplay should project to the monitor. Display is ok.....replace the backlight.
