IBM thinkpad T41 -> get


Hi,

The IBM Thinkpad has a very strong security system.

If you are seeing a lock symbol when booting then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't remember it or 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 T41 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,

Can't boot and forgot bios password on ibm r50e


Yikes. You've set a password on the BIOS and don't remember it?

Well, most manufacturers set a "backdoor" password on the bios that will allow you to get in. It used to be the backdoor PW for IBM was "merlin" but that may no longer be the case. If you absolutely cannot get in, then your option is to open the case to the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery for about 15 seconds and then reconnect it. That will clear the CMOS to the factory defaults.

I wish you well with this.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

IBM laptop cant load XP from externall CD drive


If you have a floppy drive on it you are in luck.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;310994#XSLTH3135121122120121120120

That would be the most straightforward way to do it.

If not.

Are you able to boot off the external CD?

If so there is another way using the PE , preinstallatoin enviroment.

If not , you said you formatted it externally , which I assume means you have either a 2.5 to 3.5 IDE adapter or a USB to IDE adapter and another PC to format it with.

If you can hook the drive to another PC , you can do the install there , change some hardware settings , run the SYSPREP utility and swap the drive back into the laptop.

Hi i think one of my kids had hit a buttion as when i trun my IBM Thinkpad 2366 on the screen is black if you could help me in any way your thanks ned


1. Remove all USB devices such as printers, mp3 players etc etc.
2. Remove the power-cable and the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
4. Put the power-cable back in but not the battery and none the USB devices.
5. Turn the computer on

If nothing loads restart the computer and start tapping F8, when you get a menu called the advanced boot options choose last known good configuration.

Let me know if it doesnt work.

IBM Think Pad T22 auto -shut down a few minutes


Try running it without the battery. Sometimes an IBM battery can develop a short and cause this. If it still does it without the battery, I'm afraid it's the power management chip on the motherboard, and the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Boot sequence


161 and 163 error means you have to change your CMOS battery. open the laptop, change the cmos battery and you should be able to set the date and time.

after which you can access the bios by pressing F1 upon boot up and change the boot sequence after that
