By Palmore Electric ·
(Yes, I know it's a dinosaur; I use it for field work, though.) I cannot access BIOS to reset long-forgotten password on an IBM Thinkpad running Windows XP to start from CD for password reset.

Really Bad news for you then

These things have a separate IC on the M'Board to store this "Security Data" and you need to take it to a IBM Service Agent to remove the Password.

People who where Pi$$ed off with their Bosses used to set a Password and walk away without giving anyone the Password thus rendering the system useless.
