Question about IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook

3 Answers

Starting an IBM ThinkPad

I have an IBM ThinkPad Model 2628 which was in use by a colleague who left and none of us have the opening password. The computer will not boot up from a CD and demands a password for entry. We have no use for the data on the hard disk and have no need to preserve it. The computer OS is Windows 2000. So, how can we bypass the opening password? We don't know what company supplied the BIOS. What do you suggest to get the laptop operable?

The IBM TP2628 has the password encoded on a chip, and the usual method of removing the CMOS battery/ changing jumpers will not work. You will have to contact IBM tech support in this regard.

Of course, the link provided by Ekse is a great workaround, but much too risky, and the actual chip on your model may differ from the one in the article..

Try this though..it may help:

Hope that helps!

    You may have to send your thinkpad to a professional service with the equipment required for reseting / removeing the security



    You sent me a question with another ibm model.

    Can you verify what is the model of the notebook.



    Thank you

My thinkpad 2628 wont recognize my hard drive and tells me i dont have a operating system on it


This means it has crashed. You will need to use your recovery disk that came with the laptop to re-install Windows and the system drivers.

I have IBM 2628-DRU Think Pad A21m And this PC sets password for BIOS, and I can't use it, because I don't know the password


To reset the BIOS 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.
