T440s - Cannot Change Bios Settings

Hello everyone,

 

I am able to access the Bios on my T440s, and I have set a power on and HDD password for full drive encryption(They are both the same password), however I am not able to change Bios settings even after entering the password.

 

I have looked at previous threads, however suggestions such as these did not work:

*Enter only the first 7 characters

*Change boot mode to UEFI - (I cannot access the settings to do this in the Bios)

*Turn off secure boot (I again cannot access the settings to do this in the Bios)

*Holding shift and clicking restart brings me to the windows boot menu but rebooting into uefi settings just restarts to desktop

 

 

I am open to try any other suggestions you all may have!

 

Thanks so much,

 

Gabe

It sounds like there is also a supervisor password that is different from the other two.

Re: T440s - Cannot Change Bios Settings

I thought I had set all three to be the same, but perhaps not..

 

Do you know how to get the supervisor password prompt to showup? F1 at the unlock screen doesn't seem to do the trick..

 

Thank you.
