Supervisor password on ThinkPadLocked
I have an IBM ThinkPad G40 (2389-Y11). Someone had put a supervisor password on it. I was able to use the laptop just fine then I got the bright idea that I would use a utility that sets CMOS back to factory defaults. I ran the utility and it set the CMOS back to factory defaults. Now when I boot up it detects that the time and date are set to factory defaults and wants me to enter the correct time and date. To enter the time and date you have to enter the supervisor password which is stored in an EPROM. So, now it won?t boot to anything, FDD, CD or HDD because I have to enter the time and date. IBM says that the only way to get rid of the supervisor password is to replace the mainboard, not an viable option. Does anyone know a default supervisor password for IBM or have a non-expensive solution to my dilemma ?
