If you can login in under your User password and has administrator password, then you can change the Administrator/supervisor password. Go to Control Panel - User Accounts then select the User account and change the password for this User.

Factory reset Lenovo


You can order a system disk from Lenovo. Probably the cleanest way of doing it. Othewise, you'd have to install teh O/S from a generic Windows disk and go to Lenovo's site and get all the drivers.

Forgot password to my ibm thinkpad 2373


Which password have you forgotten? If it is the Power On password this can be reset by briefly removing the connection from the system board to the cmos battery. If it is the Supervisor password you can either send it to Lenovo for a replacement system board and hard drive or send to me and I will return with password removed. fixmythinkpad@btinternet.com Regards Paul

How do i get into bios on a ibm thinkpad 1800/R52? seems like it needs a password. all i want to do is reinstall windows and i cant boot from cd


helo

go to the link below to get further assistance
but basically to reset the password, follow these steps.

If the Power-on password (POP) is forgotten and the Supervisor password is known, simply go into the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility and reset the Power-on password, otherwise try the following:
  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the backup battery (CMOS battery --size of coin- located on mainboard, requires you to remove the plastic cover on rear on computer)
  4. Turn on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The POP has been removed.
  5. Reinstall the backup battery and the battery pack.
    Note: Some ThinkPad systems have the ability to reset the Power-on passwords in the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility if a Supervisor password has been set.

When i turn on my emp thinkpad it's all black and on the top it says password but i dont know it.


Per Lenovo Support (they purchased IBM thinkpad a couple years ago)
ote: Do Not Forget Your Supervisor Password! If you forget your Supervisor password, there is no way to reset your password to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a supervisor password automatically sets the hard drive password. If you do not remember your supervisor password you must have the system serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.

Supervisor password


A Supervisor password protects the system information stored in the BIOS. The user must enter the Supervisor password in order to get access to the ThinkPad BIOS Setup Utility in order to change the system configuration. If the Supervisor password is forgotten there is no way to reset it to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a Supervisor password automatically sets the master Hard drive password. The following is the icon that comes up in the upper left corner if a Supervisor password is set:
A forgotten Supervisor password will prevent access to the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility. To regain access, the system will need to be serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.
