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.

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.

    ahhh..I see..ok..well..you'll need to re install the operating system from a recovery disk..and this time, either don't use the password, or write it down somewhere.

    good luck


  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Mar 27, 2008

    no worries..just insert the recovery cd in the tray, and turn it back on, the system will see that cd, and attempt to boot from it.

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Mar 27, 2008

    IF you boot from a cd, that would not be the case..do you have a recovery cd?

    Forgot My Pin Number. how do retrieve it .


    Hola Sorry to say but if this is the right one i searched for the manual found
    http://download.lenovo.com/UserFiles/UserGuide/en/User's%20guides%20and%20manuals/K1/Lenovo%20IdeaPad%20Tablet%20K1%20Hardware%20Maintenance%20Manual.pdf
    IT said as following:

    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.

    Power-on password

    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.

    Supervisor password

    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

    I forgot my password.


    When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

    during 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 there

    also

    The 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

    Bios password reset


    from the Toshiba support site

    The BIOS and Supervisor passwords cannot be removed or changed unless you know the existing password(s). If you forget your BIOS or Supervisor password, you will have to have the password removed by a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider. Although the prompts for these two passwords have the same appearance, the passwords are set and removed differently. If both are set, the Supervisor password takes precedence.

    I assume that the notebook will have a BIOS battery similar to a standard PC. If you are happy to disassembe it you may be able to reset the BIOS by removing the battery and/or locating the bios reset jumper

    Another alternative is to If this doesn't work or you dont want to disassemble the PC, you can try to build the Toshiba Parallell loopback.

    A lot of Toshiba computers remove the password when you boot it up with the loopback connected

    It can be made out of a 25pin male connectors (db25). Connect these pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, 18-25
