This works great
\015\012Forgotten Power-on password
If the Power-on password is forgotten
\015\012and the Supervisor password is known,
\015\012simply go into the ThinkPad BIOS setup
\015\012utility and reset the Power-on password,
\015\012otherwise try the following:
Turn off the computer.
Remove the battery pack.
Remove the backup battery. This is
\015\012located under the battery.
Turn on the computer and wait until the
\015\012POST ends. After the POST ends, the
\015\012password prompt does not appear. The POP
\015\012has been removed.
Reinstall the backup battery and the
\015\012battery pack.
Note: Some ThinkPad systems have the
\015\012ability to reset the Power-on passwords
\015\012in the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility if a
\015\012Supervisor password has been set.
