With Windows 95, you can reinstall th operating system without affecting your data or programs. If you have your original install cd, use this to reinstall the operating system

I FORGET MY IBM THINKPAD LENOVO T60 BIOS PASSWORD, NOW HOW I ENTER IN BIOS. PLZ GUIDE ME. S.VIRANI


Hi


Remove to your BIOS password download the CmosPwd, and follow the mention below instruction.
Typical Usage for DOS and all Windows users:

1) Identify your BIOS manufacturer (usually displayed at boot-up)

2) Start in DOS, or start a DOS session in Windows 95/98/ME. For Windows NT or Windows 2000 boot from a DOS or Windows 95/98 boot disk (you can find boot disks at www.AnswersThatWork.com), and run CMOSPWD from your boot floppy (or another floppy).

3) C: [Enter] cd CMOSPWD [Enter]

4) Type CMOSPWD at the DOS prompt and press Enter.

5) CMOSPWD will display a list of possibilities. Use the possibilities itemised against your BIOS manufacturer. Remember :

a) For AWARD BIOSes, use the Numeric Keypad (with NumLock ON).
b) AWARD 4.50PG BIOS always accepts "AWARD_SW", or "d8on", or "589589".
c) Old Phoenix BIOSes will accept "phoenix".

6) If the standard method does not work, then try to kill the CMOS password with CMOSPWD /K (and press Enter), and then see if you can get into the CMOS without a password. If you can, you successfully "killed" the old CMOS password. DO NOT KILL THE CMOS ON LAPTOPS!

I have a ibm thinkpad that was giving to me ,but when i power it up it displays no operating system found?


The reason why no operating system was found is possibly the hard disk has been wiped clean. You need to install Windows and the ThinkPad device drivers and any programs you need to get a fully operational laptop.
If you are new to setting up a computer, you need to get assistance from a computer savy friend.

Need to find start up disk for windows xp pro/ ibm


Well this web page has the specs for you laptop:-

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-54877.html

From what I've seen, it probably had XP loaded originally.

Now you could try contacting Microsoft for a genuine copy of XP complete with COA. Of see if you can get a copy from a PC shop or even ebay.

I'd be tempted to go down the slightly more adventurous route and download a copy of XUBUNTU. Its a Linux based operating system. A lighter version of the main (Ubuntu) designed for older laptops.
