Re: I set the power on password on my ibm 600e and now...
Go to www.ibm.com go to support page, download the service manual of your model first, it will show you how to reset your bios password or remove your bios passord, usually remove the bios password, it is your CMOS battery (look like a calculator battery) unplug it, and put it back on again, your bios password should disappear. make sure remove the battery first.

Turn off power to the computer. Wait about 30 seconds. Hold down the F1 key while you turn on power and keep holding down that key until the setup screen comes up. Go to the network boot section and disable Network Boot. Save setting and restart. That should fix it.
You have an Power on Password.
The Power on Password is set up from the BIOS configuration and the password is stored on an EEPROM chip. Removing the BIOS battery will not reset the BIOS password, there are no backdoor password available. There is a way to retrieve the password, but it requires a bit of electronic skill and a working computer to achieve this.
