Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
I have an ibm thinkpad A30 2652 it lock with a supervisor password. Everytime i boot it, it is asking to update time and then it goes to a lock position asking of a password. Do you have any solution for this on how to unlock this machine.
Some of the older thinkpad had a program you from the OS or a boot floppy to had to run to get change the bios settings. But the BIOS key on most is F1. So if you press that key as soon as you turn the machine on and anything appears on the screen, and once you've provided the password you can then change the password to blank within the bios.
If you don't know the password at all, there may still be a way to reset it, but it may require a call to IBM/Lenov, or some other tedious process.
