IBM thinkpad T41 -> get


Hi,

The IBM Thinkpad has a very strong security system.

If you are seeing a lock symbol when booting then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't remember it or 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 T41 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:

Hope this helps,

Tip

Actually, shorting the battery terminals WILL work on SOME laptops, but things...


1)Plug in either the vga or dvi into both the projector and the laptop.
2)Plug in the power cord to the projector,then turn the projector on.
3)Once it has past its warm-up period,find the function key on your laptop.(Fn)
4)Along the F1,F2,F3 ect keys,press find the one with the picture of the display.
5)When you have found it,hold down Fn and press the display key down until it clones the laptop and projector.

Hi HP Compaq Presario 2200 PC Notebook Usb problem usb not work any idea about solve this problem usb & sound problem & touch pad cannot be move


Dear Mr. Amr, (if this solution doesnt solve your problem, without rating the solution, please leave a comment and i will try to resolve your issue.)

Dear Mr. Captainjerry,

For your issue, please find attached the service manual for your laptop at this link. (*read complete email before clicking this link)

http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00226047.pdf

BUT,

If your laptop uses security chip protection, please continue reading as removing the battery won't help ... nor is there a reset jumper. If this model uses a Security Chip for access protection => once a password is set for BIOS access there is no way to reset it if you don't know the password. It will require a new security chip (which requires extensive soldering/desoldering skills and equipment, as the security chip is wave soldered to the board) or a new motherboard. You'll need to have the laptop serviced at an HP repair facility.
If you're comfortable with your soldering/desoldering skills, you may be able to buy the security chip here http://www.pwcrack.com/security_chips_compaq.shtml
Although they may not list your specific model, they can often get the appropriate chip if you give them a call.
Security-chip enabled laptops have EXCELLENT security => they're designed so that if you set a password your data is thoroughly protected against anyone who doesn't know the password -- including YOU.
The good news is that's great protection -- you can be sure that if the laptop was lost or stolen nobody can access your data. The bad news is that if you forget the password you're out of luck -- you also can't access the data. There's simply no recourse except to have the laptop serviced at an authorized repair facility ... they'll likely require proof of ownership; and it's not an inexpensive repair.

Hope that was useful. If yes, please rate the offered support.

Regards,
Techno-Geek.

I need to clear my Bios Password for My IBM Thinkpad R52


OK, I posted this the other day, so for the benefit of those who missed it. "None" of these techniques will work on the R52, as it has a different chip. The above well intentioned solutions mentioned above will work with older models but not this machine as the bios chip has been changed. FYI

BIOS PASSWORD


Taking out the battery does not work anymore. The bios password is now held in an electric erasable read only memory chip AKA (EEPROM). Its a little labor intensive process to erase this chip and I am not going to go into it here. But if you rate this fixya and post an E-mail address where I can send you contact info I will send you the info you are seeking and teach you.

Problem with the startup when turn it on


You mean a BIOS password? or a password on your Windows account.

In case of BIOS password: you need to reset the CMOS (Chip that holds data for BIOS). You can do this by removing the CMOS battery or use a reset switch/jumper on your motherboard. If this is the case tell me and I'll walk you through it.

In case of Windows: Boot until logon screen. If it's the blue welcome screen press Ctrl + Alt + Del 3 times until a small login box appears. Type the following:

Username: Administrator
Password: the password set at install, or is most case: leave blank.

Once logged in, go to Control Panel > User Accounts. Select your user and change the password.

I hope this helps solving your problem.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

THE V-SHIP NEEDS RESET


The V-chip has a 4 digit numerical password in order to keep older children from changing its settings. However, it can be overridden by savvier youth who read the television's manual to find out how to reset the password to 0000 (built into the V-chip in case the parents themselves forget the password that they set).
