Brand new Yoga C930 shipped with BIOS / supervisor password set - PLEASE HELP!

Q: Brand new Yoga C930 shipped with BIOS / supervisor password set - PLEASE HELP!

Hi there, I unpacked my brand new Yoga C930 this morning and tried to enter the BIOS (UEFI) settings through the Novo Key (Fn + Power). The C930 had been configured and ordered at the German Lenovo Shop run by Digital River. I was shocked to see that the machine prompts for a system / supervisor password for the BIOS. I did a thorough reasearch (online manual, misc. forums) for something like a default password. I even gave it a few tries using different passwords I figured out myself, but obviously didn't succeed. Does anyone know if there's a universal password that Lenovo use for end-of-line testing or customization of built-to-order devices? To talk to the official support, I'd have to wait another two days till Monday, I'm afraid. Unlike in the U.S., Lenovo doesn't provide any help to the European customers during the weekend. Any idea, folks? Thanks in advance. Kind regards and all the best for 2019m_r_j_m

Hi, tried out a brand new Yoga C930 with 4K screen the first time yesterday. I came across three issues: 1. When I took it out from a computer bag, I flipped it to tablet mode. Wallpaper showed up but the Windows login prompt did not. I had to flip the LCD to turn the laptop into laptop mode. Then, the login prompt showd up. What is wrong? 2. After I logged on, some area of the screen were not responsible. For example, I touched the Windows icon at the bottom left but nothing happened. Similary, the computer did not respond when I touched the middle of "Type here to search". Is the touch screen defective? 3. I connected the laptop to a projector at school, even I chose mirror mode, nothing happened on the projector. I went to a different room hours later. Again, connected to the projector via Anker's usb-c to HDMI adapter. It did not work but after a while, my laptop screen showed up on the projected screen. Is my new laptop defective?

I just purchased a Lenovo YOGA C930-13IKB this past Thursday (5/16) from Best Buy & found that the lower left & upper right corner do not sit exactly flat on a hard surface causing it to wobble.  Doing a quick search online I found numerous reports of other Lenovo laptops with this concern but was curious if anyone has come accorss this on their new C930 & if so what was the repair/replace remedy? I checked all the rubber "feet" on the bottom & they all appear to be of same size but yet there is a few mm gap (screen open or closed) on left as you can see in attached picture. Greatly appreciate any help & guidance...

A:Brand new Lenovo Yoga C930 wont sit flat

Welcome to the Community!
 
I've run into this with a number of appliances and devices. Sometimes, it's a warped cabinet. Sometimes, the rubber feet are slightly different (usually due to a bad glue job). Sometimes, it's the surface, itself. The "redneck" fix is to just use an emery board on the rubber pads until it sits flat. But, since you just bought it and if it's out of your tolerance, I'd haul it back and make them unbox and test the replacement in front of you.

Hello, Problem 1:I've set the supervisor password some time ago on my T450s. I think I used the special character "!" which was accepted at that time, but I'm not sure anymore today. Now after severeal BIOS updates the "!" only leads to a beep of the system and I also tried all of my standard-passwords without "!" , but without success. Problem 2:Now I've tried to roll back to older BIOS versions to try if one of these accepts the "!". But every version I tried leads to a "secure flash authentication failed"-error after the reboot of the laptop to actually flash the BIOS. The following link says its the Rollback Prevention Enabled, but I checked in BIOS and it's clearly disabled.https://support.lenovo.com/sg/de/solutions/ht117858 Now I have no idea how to proceed. Has anyone seen that the BIOS has accepted special characters like "!"?Are there other T450s which are not able to rollback to older BIOS versions with the above mentioned error? Technical Infos:- Model: ThinkPad T450s 20BW-S03E00 (the one with Intel graphics only and a core i5-5200)- BIOS: 1.29(JBET65WW) Thanks in advance!  Best regards,Linus123

While I have not used that exact model, most BIOS passwords can be cleared by opening the case and removing the CMOS battery for a few seconds. It looks just like a big watch battery on the motherboard. Good luck!

Hi, I didn't really find the answer I was looking for so here I go: I bought thinkpad yoga 460 that was previously in demopool(nbwn.de). After using it for 4 months I noticed that it has a BIOS supervisor password set and I couldn't get in BIOS. I sent it back, but none of the passwords they usually set worked nor did the one that was given by the previous customer. I definitely haven't set a password of my own, nor could anyone have done it while I have been in possesion of the laptop.  The interesting thing is that when trying to enter BIOS, it asks for fingerprint first which is mine interestingly, although I set one only in windows and after that it asks for the supervisor password. So is it possible that I have unknowingly set the password for BIOS through windows?

Hello all,

I'm in a bit of a bind. I'm working on a computer that needs the boot order changed, so I can install an OS upgrade (2000 to XP Pro) and I can't get into the BIOS without the supervisor password. The individual who had/worked on the computer before has long gone, so that option is out. The default stuff won't work (admin, exec, password...and so on). I seem to remember that you can dislodge the battery, or switch the jumpers (although different motherboards might have different stuff), but It's been several years since I've had this problem and I can't remember the solution.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

A:I forget BIOS Supervisor Password

There is no solution to a lost supervisor password other than replacing the motherboard.  As far as the HDD password, it is encrypted in the BIOS but the encryption algorithm is the same on most models of a similar age.  (You don't say what model you have.)  If you have another machine or anything T400 or newer with an ultrabay, you can remove the password there

I recently acquired a Lenovo W530, however on startup it is asking for a password to move forward. I got this password from my supplier, however when I go into the BIOS to turn off the password protection, it says 'Can't remove when Supervisor Password is set' - meanwhile the Supervisor password change option is greyed out. Is the password I have only the Power On password, with a separate Supervisor password that I don't have? Is there any way to remove the Supervisor password if you don't have it (other than replacing the motherboard)?

A:Supervisor Password greyed out in BIOS

Power on PW and Supervisor PW are different from each other, you can open your computer using power on PW but not on the other. I suggest you to contact the manufacturer directly and most of the time they can deactivate that PW on their end.

A:Do you have a vb script to set a new BIOS Supervisor Password?

It is not possible to set a password with the WMI interface when a password does not already exist.  This is for security reasons.  Otherwise it would be possible to have malware which runs in Windows, sets passwords that you don't know, and locks you out of your system. It can be done in DOS.  Some customers boot a DOS disk as part of their unboxing procedure to set a known password.  Then they can change it by WMI later (if they want to).  Some large customers order their systems from the Lenovo factory with a known password installed, talk to your account manager if you fall into that category.

In the Thinkpad BIOS, is there any way to access the pre-boot environment with only the supervisor password if a HDD password is also set? I note that at least on my machine (X1 Carbon 5th Gen), with both a supervisor password and a hard disk1 user password set (I have set different passwords for each), I am always prompted first for the HDD password to enter any pre-boot environment, including:BIOS (pressing F1 at Lenovo screen)the boot order menu (pressing F12 at Lenovo screen)the boot options menu (pressing enter at Lenovo screen)However, for any of these functions, I am not accessing the disk drive and not booting into the drive, but rather trying to access only the pre-boot environment in the BIOS. So why does the system ask for the HDD password? I can see a scenario where perhaps one needs to boot via USB for troubleshooting, or the HDD password is forgotten or some other issue where only the BIOS needs to be entered and not the disk drive.  Is there perhaps a certain key press at the HDD password prompt to switch to a "BIOS only" mode? (I tried the various function keys at the disk drive password prompt, but it didn't do anything) Thanks in advance for any assistance!

I recently changed my BIOS password (aka supervisor password) on my ThinkPad T400 and I did not write it down. I do remember that the character limit for this password was short (maybe 6,7,or 8 characters long). If I knew the (default?) character limit or length I could rule out dozens of other passwords in my memory and gain access to my computer that much sooner. Ive read every manual and users guide for my laptop and there is no other method readily available, no bypass solution so it is imperative that I remember what I set.. Thanks for your time.

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help ?

We have just started to put a supervisor password onto our Tecra A11 laptops so our pupils cannot set passwords on the hard drive etc.

To get into the BIOS and set a BIOS password, we press F2 as the machine starts.
We then go into the security option, then supervisor password.
Having entered the password we want to use twice, we press F10 to save etc.

The machine starts ok and goes in to windows without a hitch.

The problem we have now is that we cannot get back into the bios at all.
As the machine starts we press the F2 key as before but unlike previously the screen just remains blank and the 'Toshiba leading Innovation >>>' screen no longer appears.

If we keep our finger on the F" key or keep pressing it the laptop just restarts without ever getting to the BIOS screen where I assume we will get asked for the supervisor password we set earlier?

Is there another key we should be pressing as the laptop starts ?

I should add we have added a supervisor password for the BIOS security screen on three of our laptops and all three have the same issue.

Thanks

I think this should be useful for you:

In some cases you need to press the "INS" key while Toshiba logo appears.

Then a prompt for the Supervisor Password would appear and if the password is certified then the BIOS could be entered by pressing the "F2" key.

Indeed, it may happen. Sometimes large customers request preconfigured laptops which may include customized supervisor passwords. Of course, you should have not received one of these units.

Right,  So when last home in the US I bought a brand new Lenovo C930 (the 2018 version with an i7, 1TB ssd and the standard 1080p screen). I purchased the lenovo specifically because of reliability and durabilitiy issues I had been having with a similar Acer. However upon moving to Southeast Asia, where I will be working for the foreseable future, I noticed several severe problems.  The sakers rattle. Badly. On mid to high volume the built in speakers are not usable unless I press down on the front of the laptop. Um. Not acceptible.The thing crashes when touched. It is so sensative. I got a crazy stuck pixili screen when I tried to flip the display around the first time. If I bump the table its on (even setting down a mouse to hard) the thing crashes. If I pick it up, it crashes. If I set it down it crashes. Basically useless as a laptop or mobile device. It just crashs and crashes and crashes and has to be hard reset over and over and over.I contacted Lenovo and of course their once standard international warranty is now no longer standard. Half the reason I purchased the **bleep** thing is because of Lenovo's reptuation for global tech support and warranty support. Apparntly that died in 2018. So now I have a nearly $2,000 laptop that cannot be used as intended, and the tech support guy was less than helpful.

So my cursor was jumping to the upper left corner of the screen.  It is under warranty.  Now Lenovo says that the LCD screen is cracked.  It was not cracked when it left here.  It was sent to Lenovo to have it repaired for the cursor.  lenovo says that the crack isn't under warranty so my cost will be over $700 to repair.  I feel that I need to discuss this with someone who can go back on FedEx.  I shipped it in the Lenovo provided box and I even had the FedEx folks be sure that it was secured correctly within the box.  I had them use extra tape as what was sent by Lenovo wasn't enough. How do I get someone to listen to me at Lenovo.  No one even sent me an email about this, I had to call to find out after 2 weeks that they weren't repairing it because it isn't under warranty. I've been a customer of Thinkpads for over 20 years but this has been the worst experience I've ever had with a thinkpad.  I am just sick that it has come to this. Surely someone is able to go to FedEx and say this was damaged in shipment.  I shouldn't have to pay for their mistake.  What do I do.
