Question about IBM ThinkPad R52: R52 P M 760(2.0GHz), 512MB RAM, 80GB 4200rpm HDD, 15in 1400x1050 LCD, 64MB ATI Rad... (THINKPADR52R52PM76) PC Notebook
Hi, would you know how to remove the power on password as well as the bios password as have a R52 lappy and it wont boot as its needing the power on password and i have forgotten what it is.. any help would be appreciated. thankyou. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!!!!!!!!
