When i start Lenovo thinkpad T400, i get to see a lock symbol with blank screen

Hi sundar1968,

I see that your Thinkpad T400 machine is locked and you are unable to make use of the machine.

to be able to unlock the machine power the system on once turned ON you will see a Lock icon on the center of the screen just press and hold down the FN key for at least 5-7 seconds or if possible untill the lock icons shows that it is unlocked.

This should help you with your concern.

Have a nice day,

I have somehow managed to switch the touchpad on my laptop off. What is the shortcut to put it on again?

laptops have an FN function key try pressing on FN then press F8 at the same time or if you have a lenovo and it is a g530 upper right hand corner above the keyboard you should see speakr icons and on the roght last Icone that lookslike a box is for your touhpad, press t once if the light on your touchpad turns off then it will already be enable or turned ON but if the light between the touchpad buttons is lit then it means it is turned off,

the FN+f8 is for a lenovo only for other laptops I really am not sure but if you look clsely to the FN bottons on your keyboard they will have little picture showing what they can enable or disable by click FN + whatever botton for a touchpad it will be a box with a slash on it thus enabling anf disabling your touchpad.

I can't remember the password to unlock my Lenova laptop. Is there any way to bypass?

hi dbcaloha, one way of bypassing the password is to power drain the pc.

Turn off the pc, unplug cables, remove the battery , press and hold the power button for 5 seconds, replug cables and reinsert battery.

Turn on the pc and check if it bypass the password, otherwise your system needs to perform factory reset...

Hope this helps...

I unchecked the veriface setting to NOT use my face at login and I never set a password or username for my Lenovo G530 now my veriface won't read my eyes and I have no password to get into vista so I am...

Try booting the system in safe mode (keep pressing f8 while booting till you get booting options to windows). This will enable you to log into Administrator account using password if it was assigned, otherwise it will simply let you in.

Locking keypad

Do you have a device password set on the device? If so, go to Options (wrench), General Settings, and you should be able to change the lock out time up to an hour. Press the BB Menu key and select save. Enter Password to confirm.

If you do not have a password set, somehow you are pressing the Keyboard Lock icon. To unlock, press * (asterisk) key and hit Send call button.
