First ,you have to get into your BIOS.With most laptops ,you press "F2" right after you press the power button to turn on your computer.But it's not always "F2". It may be "Esc", "F1", "F8" or "F10" depending on the particular model.
after you get into the BIOS, you'll see tabs across the top of the screen.Choose the one that says "Security" and then you'll be able to change the password .

Bios password


This is supposed to be impossible, but there is a way to do it. Unscrew the case, locate the CMOS backup battery, remove it. Leave it out for a minute or so as to allow the capacitors enough time to discharge. Restore the CMOS battery to it's original position, screw the case back together, and power on the computer. Your BIOS password should be removed. Keep in mind that this will also restore all BIOS settings to factory defaults.

That is a bit of a problem.
There is no way of finding out what it was I suppose as there is no way of cracking the password.
Contact IBM.com for a dealer near you who can do it for you. I can do it but I am tied by protocol as it is a confidential action.
Why changing the password would help, I have no idea. It won't affect the programmes.
Hope that helps.

Unknown bios password


Did you or someone else change it? Normally there is no BIOS password.

Why do you need in??

To remove the password, remove the BIOS battery for 5 minutes and put it back in.

Free advice - don't use a BIOS password. It does nothing outside of a corporate environment.

If you think this will change or remove a Windoes password ... well ... sorry, it will not.

Supervisor password


A Supervisor password protects the system information stored in the BIOS. The user must enter the Supervisor password in order to get access to the ThinkPad BIOS Setup Utility in order to change the system configuration. If the Supervisor password is forgotten there is no way to reset it to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a Supervisor password automatically sets the master Hard drive password. The following is the icon that comes up in the upper left corner if a Supervisor password is set:
A forgotten Supervisor password will prevent access to the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility. To regain access, the system will need to be serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.
