Lost Superwiser PW X100e 35082UG

The pw is not lost but I don't konw it, I came across this machine and it is locked. What does the 5 items means after otherwise. Is this really working?


Normal Operation

When the Power-on password has been set, a prompt will appear during the system start up, and the Power-on password must be entered before an operating system can be booted.

Forgotten Power-on password

If the Power-on password is forgotten and the Supervisor password is known, simply go into the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility and reset the Power-on password, otherwise try the following:

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the backup battery.
  4. Turn on the computer and wait until the POST ends. After the POST ends, the password prompt does not appear. The POP has been removed.
  5. Reinstall the backup battery and the battery pack.
    Some ThinkPad systems have the ability to reset the Power-on passwords in the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility if a Supervisor password has been set.

Contact a local Service Provider to carry your machine in for service.

Those instructions are for the Power-on Password only.


If you don't know the supervisor password you either ask the previous owner (if possible) or swap the motherboard... Smiley Indifferent
