Reset Supervisor Password in BIOS

2018-02-13, 13:44 PM

Hello,

I've recently bought a used Lenovo ThinkPad L440 and it has a supervisor password which prevents me to modify anything on the BIOS. Is there a legal and easy way to clear it since the former owner doesn't know the password either? Thanks.

Solved! See the solution

Unfortunately not, you either know the password or replace the motherboard. Password circumvention discussions are not allowed according to forum rules.

 

Kind Regards...
