Question about IBM ThinkPad 380ED
I have error 161 and 163 then I come to the power on password.
I have tried shorting the 345 password jumopers as descrimed in the 380 HMM. But nothing is happening.
Do I read this right when I understand this jumpers to restart the computer and reset the password?
Anyway I can get around tis problem?
Try removing the mini lion-lon battery inside the laptop, This should take off the password and you may have to set the time and date again tho.
