TR members do not assist password recovery. Do not respond to this thread

by OH Smeg In reply to Power-on password

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, 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.. To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

Return the unit to Lenovo and get them to fix this for you. This password is stored in a Security Chip on the M'Board and this chip needs to be cleared by one of their Technical People or if you do not ant to do this you can replace the M'Board. Only problem is when you clear the Security Chip or replace the M'Board you'll need to reload the computer again so you can use it.
