If this is a bios password, then no. The password is embedded in the security chip on the motherboard. These chips are designed so that if you try to remove them without the specialized equipment, they ruin the board, I've tried. IBM can't even get around this password, and when you send it in, they replace the chip. It's cheaper to replace the motherboard than it is to have the chip replaced, considerably cheaper.

Now, if this is a Windows password, then you can either start the machine in safe mode, log in as administrator, and clear any passwords from the user accounts section in the control panel, or you can perform a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

Tip

For IBM Thinkpads, This method will not work on new models. The Security is...


On a Laptop often you have to disassemble the computer to remove the battery or jump the CMOS reset.
On some laptop, like many Dells, and thinkpads the battery can be accessed from one of the slots at the bottom, and it is located deep at one side of the slot.
More commonly battery is located on lower side of the motherboard, and to access it you will have to remove the motherboard.
Better getting schematics before disassembling the laptop.

Do not disassemble the laptop unless you have done this operation several times before, and you have practice.

Before disassemblying remove battery and unplug the AC adapter.
Do not short any pins unless you are sure that you are jumping the CMOS reset pins, even without main laptop battery you can still damage components touching here and there.

The best way to erase CMOS is removing the laptop battery for one minute, thn pputting it back.

This will reset CMOS to factory and erase BIOS settings.

I have Dell Latitude CPx laptop,when it is powered on it gives the message, This computer system ,#8IT1F88-595B ,is protected by a passward autentication system.You cannot access the data on this computer...


The BIOS password has been set. You have to find the chip that holds the password and short it out. Not the easiest of tasks and you have to make sure you short the right chip. Dell knows that it happens and they are not quick to help.

Does this laptop belong to you or you purchased it? If so you need to contact that person for the password or ask for a refund.

This ThinkPad laptop has a Power on Password. This password is enabled to prevent unauthorized access to this laptop.
This password is configured from the BIOS and is stored on an EEPROM chip (ATMEL 24RF08) and removing the BIOS battery to reset the BIOS to the factory defaults will not remove this password.

There are no backdoor passwords available. IBM state the fix is a replacement motherboard.

Need password


The password requested is the Power on Password and it is stroed on the AMETEL 24RF08 EEPROM chip.
The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration and removing the BIOS battery wil reset the BIOS to the default settings but will not remove the password.
There are no backdoor passwords available and IBM say the fix is replacing the motherboard.
You can hack into the EEPROM to retrieve the password but it requires electronic knowledge to build an electronic interface and running a program on a working computer.

Unable to start up/unlock computer


This laptop has a power on password. There are no backdoor passwords available and removing in BIOS battery won't fix this problem because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
I'm not sure which EEPROM chip is used in you model laptop, but if it is the Atmel 24RF08 chip then you can hack into this to recover the password. For information on how to do this go to :-

Ibm think pad t43 /1872/bb6 i want see where is security chip laptop mainboard\


Are you referring to the Atmel EEPROM 24RF08 chip?
If so, in the T40 Thinkpad it is under the touchpad, I suspect on the T43 in may also in the same location.
