Lenovo ThinkPad Service - Password Removal - Reset


Thinkpad Password Questions:
The IBM Thinkpad can have up to three passwords:


Power-on (POP) Password Removal


This password is required to turn on the PC. Without this password, the laptop can be turned on but can not be accessed.





Supervisor (SVP/BIOS) Password Removal


This password is inside a chip on the motherboard. It can not be recovered by shorting the jumbers, etc. This password is required to access the BIOS. Changing BOOT sequence (booting from a CD or hard drive or floppy), date/time and other specs on the systems, requires this password.
You have to have a special electronic device to read this password from the chip and remove it.




Hard Drive (HDP) Password Removal


This password is inside a chip on the Hard Drive.
It is almost impossible to remove this password, it is written to the drive itself and encrypted. There is a small chance of recovering from this type of situation, you will have to replace the drive.

What can be done?

Is your Thinkpad LOCKED with a Supervisor/BIOS Password?
Is your boot screen showing CRC 1 - 0175 or CRC 2 errors?
Ready to give up looking for that magical back door? (It doesn't exist)
