How to brack bios password in my ibm r52


To reset the BIOS 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.

I am using IBM R52.. now, i forgot the bios password.. what are all the options to reset the password?...


Thinkpad R52. There is a very good piece of software that you can download from Sourceforge.net. Its a linux software but works very well. Once you download install on a CD. This IBM has the ability to actually store three separate passwords for it's hardware before you get to windows. The toughest being the HDD (hard drive)password. This password is embeded in the boot table and cannot be removed because of the nature of it's function.

Good luck

Is this a Windows log in password or a bios power on password?

Re: power on + bios password


IBM uses a security chip on the motherboard that burns the password into it when a bios password is enabled. The only solution to getting around a bios password on an IBM is to replace the bios security chip or the motherboard. I've wrestled with this before, and believe me when I say it's a whole lot easier to replace the board. Do your best to remember!!!!!!!!
