Jumper settings on 8307-48U mainboard

Doesn't IBM have documentation on jumper settings for service techs? If this is the case, none of my customers will ever buy IBM's in the future. I can go to Intel's website, ASUS's website, FIC's, Micronics, Compaq or HP (a little tough) and immediately download drivers and documentation. I need the jumper and Front Panel pinouts for this mainboard ASAP, anyone who can help I will greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Tengo una pc ibm pentium 3, esta bloqueada desde la bios y no se como desbloquearla. he averiguado que quitando la bateria de la mainboard por un lapso de tiempo este pasword se quita, y que tambien...

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.

How do I change pass word in bios setting?

hi
On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.
If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.
Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type, you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it.

okay guys i found i new way to reset the pass with only a screwdriver …
will try to make a site with a tutorial to reset the tmp chip .. i think it works on every ibm notebook
here is a picture from an IBM X41 tablet i reseted the pass today
http://ug1.kw.cx/ug/0257/1549/123784929_full,r,470×470.jpg
you have to put the screwdriver between the 2 pins to contact them .. and now power on ya machine and go to the bios … you will receive a message with an security chip error or something like that
this chip was on the bottom of the mainboard … i think the T Notebooks (T40 , 42 , 43 , R50, R51 have the chip under the touchpad
will share this here for ya guys
i trade with used computers so you have to try many thigs to delete passwords ^^
The same way to delet passwords on DELL (D610, D600, and many more)

Swap two hard drives

Indeed you can. Make sure the jumper settings are identical for the swap, and as long as the replacement one has windows xp running on it you should be fine.

Wont boot fully

Try resetting the system BIOS.

There are three ways to do this, depending on the mainboard style.
Check for a jumper near the mainboard battery.
If there is one, and it is a three pin style, move the jumper from the side it is on to the other side, then turn the power on (generally it will spin up, but nothing will happen), and then back off. Replace the jumper as it was originally and boot the system.

If there is a two pin jumper, remove the jumper, turn the computer on (again, it will probably not do anything), then turn the computer off and replace the jumper and reboot.

If there is no jumper, remove the battery, turn the system on, then off, then replace the battery and reboot.
