IBM Thinkpad Password Removal Service

Thinkpad Password FAQ:
     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 time consuming and costly to recover and remove this password.   the best option is to replace the Hard Drive. 80% of the time the same password that is set for the BIOS, is set for the Hard Drive.

What can be done?

  • Is your Thinkpad LOCKED with a Supervisor/BIOS Password?
  • Ready to give up looking for that magical back door? (It doesn't exist)
  • There's NO MAGIC to work, just good, basic Electronic Technology.
