Do not give up ! :) It is true that laptop's bios security is MUCH stronger then at the normal pc. Removing the bios battery, shortcircuit or whatever woun't fix that. However it is possible to rewrite the rom memory. This can be done in a specialised service. I don't know one in your country but here in Romania some services do that. Therefore keep looking for a service, you should find them. Tell them you need your BIOS rewritten.

When i start Lenovo thinkpad T400, i get to see a lock symbol with blank screen

Hi sundar1968,


I see that your Thinkpad T400 machine is locked and you are unable to make use of the machine.

to be able to unlock the machine power the system on once turned ON you will see a Lock icon on the center of the screen just press and hold down the FN key for at least 5-7 seconds or if possible untill the lock icons shows that it is unlocked.

This should help you with your concern.

Have a nice day,

Can't get into my screen its locked

Maserati claims if you remove power from the radio by unplugging it or removing the fuse and then power it back up and do not enter a 4 digit code before turning the key back off than the system will be locked out for good.
I do not know how true this is though. Try removing the fuse again. See if the screen comes up were it will allow you to enter the code and try to see if it will let you enter it. Hopefully it works because that is a 7k radio (nit). You can also try removing the battery terminals to reset the car, but I would recommend the dealer do that because these cars are very finicky.
If the NIT screen says wait 20 minutes all the time no matter what, then you need a new NIT module, under warranty of course. Jeremy is absolutely correct in that if the NIT is in security mode waiting for a code and power is interrupted or voltage is too low, it will PERMANATELY lock.

My laptop IBM Lenovo Thinkpad T60 of type:2008-AD7, S/N L3-C0670 06/07, seems to be locked at the very start when the power is turned on, it shows a lock and enquires a password from the early start. it...

Hi,

There is no default password on the T60.

If you are seeing a lock symbol then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't guess it (try "password", "admin", "pass", etc) then you need to find the person that set the supervisor password.

Once the supervisor password is set the T60 is very well protected and it can't be reset by removing the laptop battery or CMOS battery.

There is a way to read the password from the protection chip but this is very complicated and requires taking the laptop apart and building your own chip reader.

The instructions for doing this are are:

Hope this helps,

My laptop is locked and a lock symbol appears on top left corner on the screen

If you press Ctrl + Alt + del, does it bring up an unlock screen where you can enter your password? If not, can you press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to shut it down? Then power back on to restart.

LOCK LAPTOP IBM

try going into safe mode. Shut your computer off completely and then turn it back on, when you do start tapping f8 and then choose safe mode with networking. Once your system comes back up see if you can get into any user account. If you can press the start button and click the picture at the top beside your name to enter the user accounts screen, then press the home button, and click on the administrator. from here you can have the option to remove the passwords. If you cant get into any accounts in safe mode you will sadly have to do a recovery, which entails reinstalling windows.
