  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.

What is the default password for my R51 Thinkpad by IBM Model number 2888?


Hello

I am assuming you cannot log into Windows because you do not know your login password. (Passwords can be put on the BIOS but IBM/Levono does not put one on the BIOS by default).

The easiest way to reset the default Administrator password is to create a Password Recovery disk, boot the laptop up using this disk, choose the login account that you want to reset the password for and then reset that password.

(This will NOT work for computer accounts that are on a Microsoft Active Directory Domain - you must contact the Domain Administrator to reset your password.)

I recommend using the "Offline NT Password & Registry Editor". This creates a bootable CD that you use to boot your laptop. It has automated menus to get you to the User accounts. Select the User account you want to change and then apply the changes. Remove the CD and reboot - use the new password and you should be good to go.

You may need to run the utility more than once - also, you will probably need to UNLOCK the User account.

Password lossed


try starting the machine in safe mode. (tap the "F8" key while booting, and select safe mode.) When the welcome screen comes up, there is often a user called Administrator and it most often does not have a password. If you don't use the welcome screen type "Administrator" in the user name box and click OK without a password.
Failing that, you can use a boot disc such as "UBCD4Win"(google it) to start up the machine and use one of the pass word tools to either change the password or create a new user with a new password. Then when you restart the machine normally, you should be able to log on.
