Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook ?

When i turn on my labtop only a lock symbol comes up


Answers :

It means that the BIOS is locked with a password. And you do not know it. Now the only solution is to open the bottom plates and locate a button cell on the motherboard. Remove this cell for a few minutes and replace it. Then place the plates back on the laptop and power on the laptop. Your BIOS password will be blanked. \015\012If by chance it happens to be the WIndows password, then you will have to reinstall Windows.\015\012But I feel that it is the BIOS password and not Windows.
