    my guess , you have no PC shops in town?
    and ask them to hack the chip that stores this PW? some can, ask them. (I can but am retired)
    if that cost more than (econ 101)
    >$31 free ship, as sold on ebay bios not
    locked, (has bios screen up in ad.)(

    then why spend any money on any LT worth only $30 working, you don't , buy another or
    better newer one.

    now you know why trash pitched is best.
    T series are very very hard to hack/crack
    ADMIN BIOS locks. fact.

    the PW lock is stored in serial EEPROM
    on T series. laptops.
    only the maker knows how that is coded, and encrypted.
    but hackers, have data files for the ROM
    that has a disabled PW that can be programmed on to the chip old or new. that is the only hack. (safe, hotwiring things not)

SOURCE: lenovo g530 4151 - restore bios from USB or CD ?

Hi, What I would best sugget you if you this kind of issue is to restore your system to its original settings, just look for the small button just beside the power button on your keyboard, it has an arching arrow logo, that key is what we called One Key Recovery that would restore your system to its original factory settings. but just a hint it would also delete everything on your computer so consider bucking up every important files taht you have before proceeding with the recovery. also make sure that the ac adapter is plugin before you press the one key recovery button then it will give the options to choose from, just choose one key recovey then proceed with the factory default recovery, thats it it would now proceed with the system factory default restoration. If you still need some clarifications regarding this issue you could also call the tech support hotline of lenovo

Hi,
Are you the one who set up the BIOS password? If not, unfortunately, there's no way for us to retrieved the password. The only way you can reset the password to default settings is to reseat the CMOS battery on the motherboard, its a circular thing that looks like a battery of a watch,sometimes a pin hold it, just detached it then wait for at least 30 minutes then connect it back again,
Note: Before you reseat the CMOS battery,make sure that everything is unplugged on the computer, like AC adapter,battery and all external devices...
Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

What does this message on my pc mean?Error in c: windows \ system32 \ spool\ drivers \ w32x86\3\dlcd time. Dll missing entry: run dll entry


Time.dll was probably installed along with some software that came with the HP printer.
As time.dll is shared with other applications HP may have removed it during the uninstalling process and either some oter application is looking for it or a command to open it has been left behind.
As you say the Dell printer is working well so have alook in your StartUp folder (Documents and Settings/User/Start Menu/Programs?StartUp) and delete any reference to that file of HP Printer.
Also look under StartUp by Clicking Start > Run and typing msconfig and uncheck andy reference to HP or the file.
If it turns out another pallication needs the file then reinstall that application.

IBM thinkpad T41 -> get


Hi,

The IBM Thinkpad has a very strong security system.

If you are seeing a lock symbol when booting then somebody has set the supervisor password. If you can't remember it or guess it (try "password", "admin", "pass", etc) then you need to find the person that set the supervisor password.

Once the supervisor password is set the T41 is very well protected and it can't be reset by removing the laptop battery or CMOS battery.

There is a way to read the password from the protection chip but this is very complicated and requires taking the laptop apart and building your own chip reader.

The instructions for doing this are are:

My laptop is locked and a lock symbol appears on top left corner on the screen


If you press Ctrl + Alt + del, does it bring up an unlock screen where you can enter your password? If not, can you press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to shut it down? Then power back on to restart.

Blackberry Curve 8330 Pasword Lockout


Try removing the password before attempting to sync to your computer.
On the pressing the keys and getting only numbers sounds like the numbers shift is locked.
simply press the alt on the bottom left of your keyboard.
the use of numbers only or sometimes caps only will be indicated on your screen. observe the symbols along the top and the bottom .
type something as if you were going to send a text message to text that the keyboard is set to normal and lower caps.

Jumper location


Im presuming we are talking about the Supervisor Password. (Screen boots to a lock symbol) If so im afraid that there is not a reset jumper as the password is stored on a chip.

To read the chip to get the password would require major 'surgery' on the laptop.

Im not aware of any other soloution to this issue.

Click on start ---->go to run----> type msconfig---->click startup tab at the top---->uncheck entries that you think you dont use.
