Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook ?

Setup locked I forget my setup password. My computer is a laptop IBM Thinkpad T22 and so i can't start any thing


Answers :

Usually when someone "gets or has got this laptop" and does not have a\015\012password to unlock it, it is a stolen unit. Did you get it off of Ebay\015\012real cheap?
You will need to contact the previous owner and get the passwords\015\012for the notebook, if they cannot provide them then the notebook is\015\012probably stolen. IBM has the best notebook security .\015\012Taking out the battery and or taking out the BIOS battery won't fix it.\015\012The IBM thinkpads have a security chip on the motherboard that holds\015\012and encrypts the passwords. You can't just remove the chip as it will\015\012never boot without it. IBM cannot even unlock it. They can however\015\012replace the security chip for about $250-$300 if you can prove\015\012rightfull ownership of the notebook. The only other way is to maybe\015\012find a motherboard for the T22 on Ebay or somewhere and hope it too is\015\012not password protected and then replace the motherboard. Of course you\015\012could just try to keep guessing the password however the notebook will\015\012only take a few wrong passwords, then it will lockout all attempts for\015\01210-15 minutes. The security is is one of the coolest features of\015\012thinkpad notebooks, if the security features are enabled, the notebook\015\012is pretty useless as the hard drive will never work with anything else\015\012as it is protected as well. The only thing that can be salvaged and\015\012sold is the memory chips and wifi card. I wish that IBM would make a\015\012security sticker of some form to say this as then thinkpads would never\015\012be taken as it is not worth the effort.
\015\012
\015\012Hopefully everything will workout for you and you can get your money\015\012back, if you used a credit card it should not be too difficult to\015\012contest any charges on your account for this.
