Wrong bios password after updating Bios, now CAN'T get into bios

2010-03-13, 12:40 PM

Hello all,


I have a SL500

I have upgraded to windows 7 home premium yesterday,

so i just got all my the software and Lenovo applications updated since i need to reinstall all of them.

I also came across with an update on the bios, so i proceeded.


I originally had a password set, its the one that I need to enter soon after I switch on my laptop,

NOT that one use to log in and out of windows. ( I am not sure if its called the BIOS password)

After updating the bios, i was asked for a password when it reboot, however it didnt take my original password anymore. I am not sure if all passwords get erased after updating bios, if it did, i dont get why it still asked for the password when i reboot. 


As i kept trying and kept getting the password wrong, i got this message " system halted"

After that, the system just reboot again, and from this time on, it never asked for any password when I switch on my laptop. Everything still runs fine, HHD didn't get formatted.


But then there is one problem, I can not get into bios now.


Would anyone have any ideas what happened to my laptop or solutions to the above situation, please comment and advise.


Your help will be much appreciated.

Thank you.
