Same what as whos?
the PC has the early forum of TPM lock. T series Stinkpads.
the BIOS lock out chip.
it can not be simply reset, (by design)
the BIOS user pass word yes, if SVP adimin pass word to BIOS PW is known. The manual for this PC states this.

The trick of killing all 3 forms of power works on USER BIOS pw ONLY.

the 3 ways are here (besides new mobo) SVP reset.
1: using eeprom programmer connect 2 wire and erase it.
2: replace the chip , sold on ebay by man(solder skills max)
3: at wits end,? just before the mobo hits the trash bin

one can do this. (personally id never do it but ...)'

Were you able to fix it? I took out the fan and cleaned it with a toothbrush (didn't disassemble it). If it worked, can you provide some insight into what you did?

The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista devicedrivers for your model computer, Use this link: - You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

You have a CMOS password on your computer. If you for some reason do remember the password and get into it, then please take the CMOS password off. It only causes heartache.

Reset Supervisor paaword Thinkpad R61. And bios settings already locked

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 and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

It lenovo R61 it has a password whenever you power on the notebook it shows you a lock, i av tried so many ways but i aint lucky

try opening the bottom compartment doors. look for a the cmos battery. If you take the cmos battery out(looks like a watch battery), short out the battery terminals for 60 seconds, this will likely dump any cmos locks/passwords, and default them. Worth a try . Please disconnect all power cords and take the main battery out first. Cheers
