Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook ?

Need to bypass fingerprint and password on my sons laptop. He died in September and I want to be able to give the laptop to his sister. Can someone please help me!


Answers :

I am sorry about the passing of your son.

The correct procedure here, is to take the laptop to a computer repair shop, that is an IBM/Lenova authorized repair shop.

They will ask for identification, and receipt of purchase. Then the authorized repair person will contact IBM/Lenova, fax the information above, and ask for a master password.

Once the master password is used, you will have access to the laptop once more.

Reason that this procedure is implemented is to deter thieves. Helps to keep them from accessing critical information, from the previous owner.
Sorry to hear of your son. May GOD bless his soul.The password protection is so powerful that no one can bypass it. The only way possible is to reinstall the Windows from the recovery CDs that this laptop has. \015\012Just insert the CD No 1 in to the drive and press the start button. It will start and then boot from the Cd and with little bit of help from you it will start the installation process and then ask for the next CD. Insert that and finally it would Give you the Windows desktop.\015\012Then you can give it to your daughter.
