Try removing the backup battery for the bios and the main battery. The bios battery is a small little lithium battery usually located under the memory access panel. Killing the bios backup power causes it to lose its memory and go back to default, AKA No More Password. If this does not work you must find the security eeprom located somewhere on the motherboard and short pin 3 to pin 6 with a paper clip and power up. This will set the security eeprom back to manufacturing mode and once again, no more password.
In the most extreme cases the eeprom actually has to be replaced, this only occurs on very high end units. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Good luck.

Ps. you can find the location of the eeprom easy just google for your model laptops security eprom.

Lenovo T61 Power-on password. Hi, my Lap suddenly asks me a code that I unknow. It doesn't able access to any setup, even when I press F1 to open BIOS Setup Utility to remove. I removed Backup battery...


The BIOS password isconfigured from the BIOS setup and this password is stored on an 24RF08 EEPROM chip. There is no backdoor passwordavailable and IBM/Lenevo support says the motherboard needs to be replaced.Also removing the BIOS battery to discharge the BIOS and reset it to thedefault settings will not allow you to bypass this password. This also applies to thePower On Password and the Hard Disk Password.There is a way to crack thepassword but you need electronic skills, electronic components and severalprograms plus a working computer to carry out this task.For details on how to dothis check this WEB site.http://sodoityourself.com/hacking-ibm-thinkpad-bios-password/http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335050-remove_bios_power_password_thinkpad

I have a problem with my lap top ibm think pad r32 he want password


If that is asking 4 a bios password your kinda real screwed. IBM has a government contract for the Thinkpad and the agreement in that contract states there will be no password lock work around. If you call IBM tech support they will suggest you send it in and they will swap the motherboard at your expense.

How to remove Bios password of IBM a31 Laptop


Looks like you need to send it to IBM or Lenovo if you don't like a complicated operation to the chips.

I put a password in for the power on and the administrator things and it turns out to be to long but it let me put it in. now when i put it in i cant put the hole thing in and i cant power up my lap top....


the only solutions i know are both non easy fixes. one is to strip down the laptop and find the bios battery if it has one. then pull it, leave it 30 seconds and put it back in, rebuild and all will be well. the other is to get hold of IBM and fax them proof of ID and ownership (the usualy request although i havent done it with IBM yet) and they have an unlocking set of passwords which is written into the BIOS.

IBM T21 NEW MOTHERBOARD PASSWORD PROBLEM


Break BIOS Password 
A user may also put a BIOS password preventing you to even enter the system but if you wish to access the system do not worry we you can still do it. However, I only recommend this trick for your own personal use.

What is BIOS?
Bios stands for Basic Input Output System and is a firmware code run by a PC when first powered on, which is a type of boot loader. The primary function of the BIOS is to identify and initialize system component hardware (such as the video display card, hard disk, and floppy).

How to Break a BIOS Password?

The following steps work absolutely fine for a Desktop and are the easiest of all.
Steps:
• Shut down the computer and take out all the plugs connected to electricity.
• Open up the CPU cabinet and locate the CMOS battery on the motherboard (it will be a silver circular battery just like a button cell).
 
 
Remove the battery and keep it out for some 2-3 minutes as this will flush out the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configurations.

• Now place the battery back and start the computer normally.

Steps for Laptop:

• Open up the BIOS at the time of booting.

• There are some backdoor passwords which the manufacturing company had set that will be accepted by the BIOS. You will just need to know the make of your BIOS. Try out the passwords from these lists.
List of Award BIOS backdoor passwords:
BIOSTAR, AWARD_SW, AWARD SW, AWARD PW, CONDO, LKWPETER, J262, 01322222
List of AMI BIOS backdoor passwords:
AMI, AAAMMMIII, BIOS, PASSWORD, A.M.I., CONDO
List of PHOENIX BIOS backdoor passwords:
phoenix, PHOENIX, CMOS, BIOS
