Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2682 Notebook
A method you can try if you don't have a password reset software
is by removing the CMOS battery. Remove the CMOS battery then turn the
computer on. The system BIOS will be reset and password will be removed.
Find the battery on the motherboard - it looks like a small silver coin. Ease it out of its clip noting which way it goes and then insert the new on in its place. When replacing the new battery handle it carefully. Only handle it by its edges. Do not hold it between your fingers as the battery will discharge quite rapidly through your fingers. This could be what happened with the "new" battery.
