The password is stored in your CMOs which is powered by a very small battery on the motherboard. Theres only 3 ways to remove that password...

Send it to the manufacture to have them remove it as the following two step call for you voiding your warranty.

Open up the laptop by removing the 15-20 screws off the bottom of the unit, then find this small watch like battery and remove it, keep it removed for about 10 seconds then place it back in the unit.

If the battery cannot be found then it would be best to contact someone who is familiar with motherboard jumper settings or if neither of the previous answers I gave work for you then re-post asking for the specifics of your make and models motherboard jumper settings...

How to brack bios password in my ibm r52


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.

My ibm thinkpad r-52 is locked with bios password.how can i remove that .i dont know the password.plz help me mohitagrawal08@gmail.com


Please note that Thinkpad stores the password in a special security chip which is accessed during boot time.

The only option I know to reset BIOS password in a Thinkpad is to disassemble the system and then use the steps mentioned in the following link

I am using IBM R52.. now, i forgot the bios password.. what are all the options to reset the password?...


Thinkpad R52. There is a very good piece of software that you can download from Sourceforge.net. Its a linux software but works very well. Once you download install on a CD. This IBM has the ability to actually store three separate passwords for it's hardware before you get to windows. The toughest being the HDD (hard drive)password. This password is embeded in the boot table and cannot be removed because of the nature of it's function.

Good luck

Re: power on + bios password


IBM uses a security chip on the motherboard that burns the password into it when a bios password is enabled. The only solution to getting around a bios password on an IBM is to replace the bios security chip or the motherboard. I've wrestled with this before, and believe me when I say it's a whole lot easier to replace the board. Do your best to remember!!!!!!!!
