I assuming you are using a Windows operating system. There is no way to override a password if you have forgotten it. There are utilities that will allow you to reset the Administrator password to a blank password. Try the this popular utility:

Unfortunately you will need a computer to download this utility and create a boot CD but since you were able to post this I assume you do have access to a second computer.

I think you need to borrow someone else's computer to write the information to the blank floppy.

Good luck.

I m unable to open my bios setup utility, I hav IBM A51 8122 KQP desktop.


To start the Setup Utility program, do the following:

1. If your computer is already on when you start this procedure, shut down the operating system and turn off the computer.

2. Press and hold the F1 key then turn on the computer. When you hear multiple beeps, release the F1 key.

Notes:

a. If you have a USB keyboard installed on your computer and the Setup Utility does not display using this method, turn on the computer, then immediately press and release the F1 key repeatedly until the Setup Utility displays.

b. If a user password or an administrator password has been set, the Setup Utility program menu is not displayed until you type your password.

I hope this helps.

My buddy has an IBM ThinkCentre Desktop and he wants to nrestore it to factory settings because it was used for a hotel and when they got thier new PCs they sold all thier old ones


The best way to restore the ThinkCentre desktop back to the factory default is to re-install Windows.
You need a Windows installation CD (XP, or Vista) with the product installation code. After installing Windows then install the Thinkcentre device drivers for this model desktop which you download from the IBM ThinkCentre WEB site, you may need to download the LAN driver from a computer that has Internet connection and install it on the ThinkCentre so it has Internet access to download the remaining device drivers OR you may decide to download all the device drivers and copy and install them on the ThinkCentre.

hi there,
if you have access to another computer and the internet, you can download software called password reset/recovery. these come with instructions on how to use. just use one of these to recover/reset your password and you should be able to access your computer again. Hope this helps :)

I bought a IBM thinkcentre from Circuit City but no cmos password


Best thing to do is take it bake and see if they set it for security reasons and have them unlock it,If they can't,It will need to be flashed since the bios password is not stored like it used to be.
