You will need to remove the bios battery in your laptop. Here are instructions for an R40, I assume it will be similar for a R40e:

I have ibm think pad T60 and i forget my bios password how can i reset my password ?


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your IBM ThinkPad 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.

Forget BIOS Password (Laptop - IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R60)


For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.

My ibm thinkpad r40e is asking for CMOS password what to do


You will have to enter the bios and reset the date and time, but you might need a new cmos battery.

Re the cmos password, you should remove it, but will have to know what it is. This can also be done while you are in the bios.
