sorry for my bad einglish please help me

Obivously none of you read the acctual problem of the guy with the problem. He has BIOS, HD and admin-passwords set. So, no way to enter the BIOS, boot from CD or anything else.
There is no way to bypass the HD password. Go buy a new harddisc, that's the only solution.
It sometimes helpes to bypass the BIOS password when you take out the CMOS battery for an hour or two. But it usually comes back after you reboot.
If you google you will find some threads about reading out the password from the motherboard, using some technical devices.
But I have no clue how that works.

IBM thinkpad is different with other T series
release your power battery and battery backup, for 1 or two hours
power on your T-pad

No worries..when you boot up, press F2..before the IBM logo appears, and then you'll see the bios password option on that screen..change it there, and you may see magique.

As many as two passwords may be needed for any Lenovo IdeaPad computer: the power-on password (POP) and the supervisor password (SVP). If any of these passwords has been set, a prompt for it appears on the screen whenever the computer is turned on. The computer does not start until the password is entered.
Exception: If only an SVP is installed, the password prompt does not appear when the operating system is booted.
A power-on password (POP) protects the system from being powered on by an unauthorized person. The password must be entered before an operating system can be booted.
A supervisor password (SVP) protects the system information stored in the BIOS Setup Utility. The user must enter the SVP in order to get access to the BIOS Setup Utility and change the system configuration.
Attention: If the SVP has been forgotten and cannot be made available to the servicer, there is no service procedure to reset the password. The system board must be replaced for a scheduled fee.
Sorry hope this helps a little good luck

you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log
in if you cant log in
the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press
a certain key to enter set up press and
hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user
password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from
most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to
physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug
and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another
way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2
methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the
BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the
battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps
