Answers :

Hi, \012If you are talking about the Boot, HDD, Bios password, then the only one way to recover it is to implement a chip on the systemboard to shorcut the protection or to contact Lenovo for a systemboard replacement. \012Otherwise you can check out theses 2 tutorials, with few skill you can make it yourself:\012-http://www.allservice.ro/forum/viewtopic.php?t=47&start=0\012-http://marc.info/?l=full-disclosure&m=111234041830357&w=2\012Unfortunalty, no other ways other round. \012Thanks and have a nice day\012J-\012
If this is a power on password, it is a BIOS password. To reset this, you need to open the laptop's case and look for the CMOS battery. It looks like a watch battery but is is bigger. remove it then put it back to reset your BIOS.

Hope this helps.
