Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T22 Laptop ?

I just got a thinkpad t22 900 mhz that seems to have a bios lock on it. How do I fix that?


Answers :

The BIOS password is configured from the BIOS setup and this password is stored on an EEPROM chip. There is no backdoor password available and IBM/Lenevo support say the motherboard needs to be replaced. Also removing the BIOS battery to discharge the BIOS and reset it to the default settings will not allow you to bypass this password.
\015\012There is a way to crack the password but you need electronic skills, electronic components and several programs plus a working computer to carry out this task.
