Password unrecognized after update Bios 3.16 for my T400

2010-07-06, 15:12 PM
I have successfully update my bios to 3.16 and it restarted into the OS normally without problem. But after I shut it down the next day and i try to reboot my laptop, it is not recognize my password. Neither the boot password nor the supervisor password(they are same actually). I didn't erase the password before update. Could this be the problem? Can anybody help me out? now I have to remove the HDD and install it on a R61i to work.

Does your password have any "special" characters in it such as a space or #? If not please ignore the rest of my post.

 

Could you try the password without these characters and also restrict it's leangth to 7 characters, or less if required, and let us know what happens?
