Lenovo T440 - can't enter supervisor password

2019-06-13, 13:19 PM

Here is the situation - I know all three of my passwords, HDD user-master, powerup and supervisor. My powerup password is matching with supervisor password, so here is the thing - when I enter my first password on boot, it boots well, but then, when I enter the BIOS, I can't change anything.

 

TL;DR: How to make Lenovo T440 ask specifically for supervisor password?

 

P.S. I've just tried to change it with ThinkBIOS Config Tool and got "access denied".

 

Please help me.

That means your supervisor password doesn't really match your supervisor password.

Unfortunately,the laptop only has what was entered.  It cannot read the paper
