Forgot adm password


You're going to have to google 'password reset' and download an application, which is Unix based, which you then have to burn onto a cd, which you then boot up, and from which you can reset the password. You can't look at the existing password as it is scrambled, all you can do is reset it or remove it.
This is the only way.

I've forgotten the password to my Thinkpad Type 2373. During the months it took me to get a new power cord. Is there a way around the startup password?


Hello,
If you dont know the system password for your System, forgotten it, or its not accepting it again, then you might have to reset your CMOS.
Which means you will have to unscrew your system, remove all cables supplying power to the board, locate the CMOS battery and remove it for a few seconds, then replace it and screw your system back.
This will reset your system's CMOS back to its Factory default settings.
(If you cant unscrew your PC yourself, you can just get a good technician to do it for you instead.)
Hope it helps.
Goodluck!
