From your hardware maintenance manual:

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.

My laptop IBM Lenovo Thinkpad T60 of type:2008-AD7, S/N L3-C0670 06/07, seems to be locked at the very start when the power is turned on, it shows a lock and enquires a password from the early start. it...


Hi,

There is no default password on the T60.

If you are seeing a lock symbol then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't guess it (try "password", "admin", "pass", etc) then you need to find the person that set the supervisor password.

Once the supervisor password is set the T60 is very well protected and it can't be reset by removing the laptop battery or CMOS battery.

There is a way to read the password from the protection chip but this is very complicated and requires taking the laptop apart and building your own chip reader.

The instructions for doing this are are:

Hope this helps,

Forgot cmos password after cearing cmos not able to boot from harddisk. Pls assist me how to remove cmos password of ibm T60 laptop


I just helped a friend out with this exact issue on the same notebook. Here is the instructions (step by step...well 4 steps) that worked perfectly. What you are doing is using a backdoor password set up by IBM/Lenovo.

Turn on your Thinkpad T60 computer.

  • Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.


  • Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start setup utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.


  • Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.

  • Hope this helps...

    I have ibm think pad T60 and i forget my bios password how can i reset my password ?


    To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

    In case of your IBM ThinkPad 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.

    Hi,
    There is generally a coin cell battery in mother board but lenevo laptops do not have it you can refer to the manual if it has a battery but remember removing the battery will not erase passwords.

    I have ibm thinkpad t60 admin password or problem or lock problem, i mean it has padlock symbol displays on the lcd. here is my email: nosaglee@yahoo.com


    You need to re-set your BIOS, (Basic Input / Output System). In essence you need to remove the CMOS battery and replace it; however, do not do this unless you are technically competent. When you replace the battery the BIOS will be re-installed to it's factory setting, which hopefully wont include a BIOS password.

    PROBLEM WITH T60 IBM THINKPAD


    If your laptop received a password protection and that password was forgotten there is no user manageble way to recover or disable the password. Maybe the person who tampered with it tried to reset the BIOS by removing the battery or things like that. They woun't work as the password is stored in a NAND ROM memory section of the BIOS, meaning that it isn't volatile and can't be erased like PC's BIOS by removing the power and battery. If you can't modify BIOS settings or you can't get rid of the "locked" display image, you need to go to a service center to have the password removed by them. This operation requires BIOS flashing and can't be done by the normal user as it involves specialised hardware. Sorry for I can't assist you further with a easy fix or something like that.
