Pad lock icon on screen

I have three new think pad r series computers and upon initial startup they all have the pad lock icon on them.  Any suggestions?

Re: Pad lock icon on screen

amnna, welcome to the forum,

 

this means that the ThinkPads have passwords set at the BIOS level. You need to contact sales, or where you purchased the ThinkPads, and ask them to help you resolve the situation.
