Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad X20 2662 Notebook ?

I forgot mypassword to unlock my ibm thinkpad x20 can u help me?

Answers :

I used to be an IBM Certified Gold Dealer (amongst my several certifications, BS Degree in Computer Science, and many years in the computer industry); I said that to start in the event that anyone may have a question as to my credentials.

The unfortunate answer to this dilemma is that once you have set a system board level password on any IBM laptop (notebooks included), it is impossible to work-around that issue (unlike any other system board). The ugly truth to this is that IBM can't even do it; and, there is no way around it, whatsoever!!!!

As for the same issue, since Lanovo purchased IBM's small computer division, the answer may be different!! I have no idea since I've not had to deal with the issue since the purchase.

Sorry, the only answer I can provide you with is to purchase a new system board for your unit.
