How to reset bios password ibm t40

Forgot password ibm thinkpad 2684-H8U


Screen password...... There are 3types of passwords that can be set on a thinkpad.
- Hard drive password
- Power on password
- BIOS/ CMOS password

Of these 3 only the third is recoverable or changeable without a lot of tinkering and disassembly. By removing the battery, power adaptor and the cr2032 battery inside the laptop for 1 hour then replace and the password should have cleared.

password 1. You will need access to the HPA area of the hard drive and a few lifetimes of manuals and knowledge to get the password backif it's recoverable or even accessible.

password option 2. You will need to find the "Atmel 24rf08c" EEPROM on the laptop motherboard and then EEPROM dump it's contents then scroll down many lines of code until the password appears on the right hand side.

Show me how can regular the password in t 22


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen Login Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Mode option. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it gets to the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the userid for which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgot the password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

I forgot my bios password for lenovo t22


You will need to remove the CMOS battery to reset the mainboard. The Cmos battery stores your system configuration and your password. Remove the battery for about to 2 minutes to set your system to its default configuration and it will also disable the bios password.

Need code to boot up


You need a password. Try to remove cmos battery for a few minutes then replace battery then set date and time. This will defeat 2 of the three passwords. The IBM manual describes this process. If the Lock still appears then you may need an EEPROM reader some wire and a soldering iron.

Forgot bios password for ibm thinkpad 2647 win98


To reset the laptop you need to remove the CMOS battery for ten seconds or so.

On Thinkpads the battery is hidden on one side after you remove the bottom doors, usually inside the RAM slot.

Here is how it looks like:

Althought the operation is not complicate, it requires disassembly part of the unit, and should still be done by a technician.

Laptop main battery pack must be removed before opening the door at the bottom, and internal components and boards must not be touched with bare fingers.

Forgot startup password


For the Windows password you will need to reformat your hard drive. If that would not be done or if there is another way of removing the password without removing and reinstalling the operating system or of using your laptop by working around, windows password does not make sense at all. Hope this helps. Thank you.
