Hi,

For security reasons this solution can't be given out, you must re-install the Operating System to factory settings.

Please rate my solution when possible....!

Good Luck....!

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.

How to Reset an IBM ThinkPad Power On Password Using Hardware

If you cannot boot the ThinkPad, you will have to reset the IBM ThinkPad password via hardware.

If only the power-on password is set, do the following to remove the power-on password.

  1. Power off the computer
  2. Remove the DIMM cover on the bottom side of the computer.
  3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
  4. Under the short-circuit condition, power on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The power-on password is removed.
  5. Reinstall the DIMM cover.

If both the power-on password and the supervisor password are set, do the following to remove the passwords:

  1. Power on the computer by pressing and holding F1.
  2. Enter the supervisor password. The Easy-Setup menu appears.
  3. Click on the Password messagebox_info.png icon.
  4. Click on the Power on icon.
  5. Enter the supervisor password and press the Space bar.
  6. Press Enter twice.
  7. Click on Exit; then click on Restart.

My mom forgot her password anyway to logon without it ibm thinkpad 2647 windows xp pro


Just reset the password in the router and you will be good to go, don't forget you will need to change all the wirelless devices that you want to have access to the network. Otherwise the short answer is no, it is an encrypted pasword.

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.
