Bios password lenovo T60


there are 2 ways to attempt it. 1/ you need the diagram of your mother board as it involves changing a jumper setting on the board to clear the pass. 2/there is a small round battery inside ( could be under a cover under the laptop ) unplug that battery for a while to clear the cmos. hope this helps

My laptop IBM Lenovo Thinkpad T60 of type:2008-AD7, S/N L3-C0670 06/07, seems to be locked at the very start when the power is turned on, it shows a lock and enquires a password from the early start. it...


Hi,

There is no default password on the T60.

If you are seeing a lock symbol then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't 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 T60 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:

Forgot cmos password after cearing cmos not able to boot from harddisk. Pls assist me how to remove cmos password of ibm T60 laptop


I just helped a friend out with this exact issue on the same notebook. Here is the instructions (step by step...well 4 steps) that worked perfectly. What you are doing is using a backdoor password set up by IBM/Lenovo.

Turn on your Thinkpad T60 computer.

  • Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.


  • Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start setup utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.


  • Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.

  • Hope this helps...

    I have i problem with my lenovo thinkpad t60, how do i remove the bios password in it?


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

    In case of your 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.

    Hi,
    There is generally a coin cell battery in mother board but lenevo laptops do not have it you can refer to the manual if it has a battery but remember removing the battery will not erase passwords.

    My ibm is lenovo t60 and i need bios password


    I would tell you to clear the CMOS. But, on those laptops, they soldered a chip on dedicated to saving password information, etc.. You'll have to replace the motherboard. If the pc's functioning fine, you can use the "ThinkVantage" button to restore the factory settings.
