Power On Password Change T410

I returning my T410 supplied by my employer as I am leaving the company. Would like to change the power on password, but cannot see the option to do it. I do know the password so was assuming this should be stragiht forward. Can someone confirm?

It's not in the BIOS under the "Security" tab? 

 

If you find it there, select and open it, enter your current PW and then click through twice without entering anything to disable the PO PW.  Let your employer enter a new one if desired.

There are several options for passwords under the Security tab eg hardware password, supervisor password. I've disabled all of them, but I'm still challenged for a password at power on.

Have you scrolled all the way down on that page?  It's not below those others?

Could it be a disk pw? If there is a "1" next to the lock icon, that's what it is.
