If it is the supervisor or hard drive password, you'll need to contact IBM support for service to have the board and drive replaced. If it is the password need to turn on the system, try to turn off your computer, remove the charger, battery and CMOS battery. Then press the power button for about 10 seconds. After that, connect the charger, turn on the laptop and wait till it completes the power on process. After that, you can turn it off and reconnect the batteries and try to test the system again. Hope this helps

My laptop have got biolock password and i forget my password so tell me how to unlock biolock in ibm model t43


If you are referring to the bios password, you can reset it most times by removing the cmos battery, usually a silver nickel cadmium battery on the motherboard. Remove it and then replace it, this resets all CMOS settings.

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 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

Is there a way to master reset the IBM T43 Thinkpad


No it's not possible to do it with just a button or replace it to factory settings.
The T43 Comes with WinXP or OS/2 Warp or Windows 2000 Pro.
If you wanted to reset it you basically would have to format the harddrive.
You can get a older version of WinXP which is still supported by microsoft or either that you can format it and sell it without a operating system.
Or you can add/remove items you installed and remove personal info delete pretty items much within windows itself.
Happy Holidays

How to remove IBM t43 start up password


If you know the password, enter the BIOs. At start up you should see that option briefly displayed. It will prompt you for the password. Once its entered, you can do what ever you'd like. There are "three different password groups" on your machine. POP, HDP, and SVP (Power on, Hrd drive, Supervisor). If you don't know "either the HDP or especially the POP", there is nothing you can do except buy an new MB or HD. There is not short cuts. Hopefully you have the passwords and you'll be OK.
