Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook ?

IBM Thinkpad T-30 2366 QU-5 Padlock appears on scree. I cannot do anything. How is this unlocked? Please help.

Answers :

You have a Power on Password. The correct password has to be entered before the laptop will bootup. The password is set to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop.
\015\012Did you purchase this laptop from someone? If so get the password from them. There is no backdoor password and the password is stored on an EEPROM chip so removing the BIOS battery will not reset the BIOS and remove the password.
