    IBM Laptop BIOS Password

    Locked

    by jacob.kutty ·

    I am having a IBM -T60P laptop. Accidentally the BIOS Password created and I am not able to remember the password. Can you please tell me how can reset or break the password. I asked one of my IT friend and he suggested that changing the motherboard is the only way out.

    Can any one guide me to break/reset the password.
    When I switch on the laptop, immediately it show the picture of computer and nothing else and stops there. I would be grateful to you if you could advise a way out to break/reset the password.

      Chances are you’ll also destroy the HDD contents…

      When you replace the motherboard.

      Might be a better idea if you were to recreate the ‘accident’.

      Just how do you ACCIDENTALLY create a BIOS password? 😉

      [b]TR members do not assist password recovery. Do not respond to this thread
      The members of TechRepublic – A Resource for IT Professionals[/b], will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

      If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft’s technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc..
