Thinkpad BIOS password reset questions
Thinkpad BIOS passwords are tricky things. I recall them not being dependent on a simple removal of a small CMOS battery but stored in some sort of special thing, it's been awhile since i had to look into this.... however on a model as old as what i am working on not sure if that is applicable or not.
I am looking for some direction or info about how to reset the BIOS password on this X40 Thinkpad i have. ( no machine type# on the bottom)
I would rather try and make use of it and fix it up, couple of other things it needs, and a small laptop would be mine to use..... rather then giving it away for parts or something.
Any input would help, if simply pulling the CMOS battery solves the problem on a model this old then i would be happy to hear that.
Or some kind of Linux tool.
Or if i am just out of luck.
Is this a good question?
