Hi, If you are talking about the Boot, HDD, Bios password, then the only one way to recover it is to implement a chip on the systemboard to shorcut the protection or to contact Lenovo for a systemboard replacement. Otherwise you can check out theses 2 tutorials, with few skill you can make it yourself: -http://www.allservice.ro/forum/viewtopic.php?t=47&start=0 -http://marc.info/?l=full-disclosure&m=111234041830357&w=2 Unfortunalty, no other ways other round.

Ibm thinkpad t42 bios password problem


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

IBM thinkpad t42 boot up problem.


The sympton is rather vague, but I suggest the following options, to be followed one by one, until one of them works for you.

1) Boot your system in Safe Mode (if Windows is your OS) by pressing F8 after the usual "beep" provided by the BIOS after it detects all is fine. If it boots up, which takes a little longer than usual, then your system is probably Ok, although it may have a configuration problem.
Reboot the machine from the shut down menu and hopefully it will work Ok. If not, then, depending on whether you have Windows Vista (or better), try:

2) Boot again pressing the F8 key, but this time locate the option that reads something like "Last known good configuration". Highlight it with the arrow keys and press Enter.
If you have System Restore set on your drive(s) your laptop should boot up normally.

3) The last option would be for you to go into your system BIOS and run at least a HD detection test, followed by a memory test, etc., but I would only recommend doing this if you know what you're doing. If not, ask a friend for help.

On most computers you can access the bios menu by tapping one of the Functions keys, usually its an even number most often f8, sometimes f4 or 2 and seldom f7. Hope it helps, please rate if helpful.
