This generally indicates a failed hard drive, or on occasion, a failed motherboard component. Try reformatting the hard drive and installing a new operating system. If the drive will not format, using a full NTFS format, not the quick format, then the drive has failed and will need replaced. If the machine won't allow you to get to the boot menu to do the format/install, then the security chip on the motherboard has malfunctioned. Unfortunately, the security chip will be an issue that you will either have to send it to IBM to have fixed, or replace the motherboard.

I have IBM 2628-DRU Think Pad A21m And this PC sets password for BIOS, and I can't use it, because I don't know the password


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your 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.

Hello all, I have a IBM A21m with a system password


The Power on Password is set up from the BIOS configuration and the password is stored on an EEPROM chip. Removing the BIOS battery will not reset the BIOS password, there are no backdoor password available.
There is a way to retrieve the password, but it requires a bit of electronic skill and a working computer to achieve this.
