To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your IBM 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.

I recently replace the fan in my IBM Thinkpad R52. Ever since, when using the power cord it suddenly shuts down after booting for about 10 seconds. But if I use the battery it boots fine.


I would open the case back up to make sure nothing else got moved around when you installed the new fan. If it was close to where power plugs into the laptop, you might have knocked something loose that could be either stopping the fan and causing heat to shut you down, or causing a short when the fan varies its speed.

Can not hear sound


The thinkpads have a sound key on the keyboard. usually operated by holding down the FN key and pressing the key with the (think its blue) speaker symbol on it. Make sure this is on and the volume is turned up.

Also check that the volume under the Sound option in control panel is on.

If these are suggest obtaining latest sound drivers from IBM web site and reinstalling them.
