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

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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

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?

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!

When I boot into bios via esc and F1, it wont let me go to any other pages, says the supervisor password is registered but doesn't prompt you to enter a supervisor password to make any changes. I have upgraded the bios version to 2.0 but that hasn't made any difference. I need to change the boot order but can't get into it to change it.

Does anyone have any ideas? How I can force it to ask me for the supervisor password? Or let me go onto the other pages?

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!

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: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.

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.

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

Steve

A:Tecra A11-1EG - cannot access BIOS after setting supervisor password

I think this should be useful for you:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB0B032D0000R01.htm

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.

 I bought this laptop from a used-laptop store and I only bought it because the BIOS where accessible and ready to use. I set virtualization to on and everything was great, even before I left the store. I also have a friend who loves his Lenovo T430. I told him about the problem and he said to just give Lenovo a call and they will know what to do. Of course there is no phone number I could find except sales, so I am hoping I can find a fix here. A little while ago I updated my T430 to BIOS Revision 2.7, and without my knowledge, in the process the update set a new BIOS Supervisor Password and it decided to disable virtualization extensions. Does anyone know how to fix this?Thank you.

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.

I even tried to change setting within the programs themselves, but the only one that really worked was Photoshop. Krita and Sketchbook still have no pressure sensitivity. There is also a Lenovo Pen Settings control panel for pressure sensitivity, but it does not really seem to make a difference in sensitivity when I change the settings there. Any suggestions as to how to get the pressure sensitivity to function properly on this computer would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to have to return the laptop and get the Yoga 720 13" becuase this computer is really nice otherwise, but I'm starting to think that may be the only option if I want to have a better drawing experience.

I'm not sure how I'll even manage to watch videos on it (1080p videos definitely don't even look close to 1080).I hope there's something you can tell me to help with this as it is very upsetting where my 10 year old Toshiba laptop that has a way worse screen resolution specs but way better image and video quality.Thanks

A funny thing worth noting is that even the Desktop background image that comes with the laptop is blurred. I don't understand how that can be a good start.

I just purchased a Lenovo Yoga C930, and the Pen doesn't charge in the dock unless I push the pen all the way to the bottom of the dock (and only if I'm putting the pen in, not taking it out), and even then it only charges up to 50%.
The battery lasts a while after I do this, and it takes 15 seconds for the battery to charge from 6% to 50%.
The charging contacts on the Pen itself seem straight and fine. 
The first day I used the pen, I used it heavily for a few hours and did not encounter a problem. 
Any suggestions? Is this most likely a problem with the Pen or with the laptop itself?

The Lenovo Yoga Book c930 does not have a charging dock for the pen. I believe you are in the wrong forum. Good luck.

Have a new Yoga C930 and the edges are sharp and cutting into my palms. Is this a defect or perhaps a design flaw? Using a palm rest/roll is not a solution. Can the edges be fixed or is there a type of case or cover that Lenovo can provide to cover the edges?

A:Yoga C930 sharp edges

I put a vinyl cover on my. On Amazon look for vinyl skins. They are about 30 bucks, but they come off with no sticky back and have prevented two serious scratches on my other computer, so I use it for protection. If you place it a little lower, the vinyl will cover the edges and it won't be so sharp.However, there is a hard shell cover from iPearl mCover again, on Amazon that I insist on purchasing for all of our computers. The problem is, the company doesn't release these for about 6 months after the new model comes out...So I wait patiently.I wasn't going to put a skin on my new C930 because I love the color and look, but I had to to protect the computer from that palm mark you get when using it.

Been going along fine. Updated a new battery f/w and was successful. Opted to installed OneKey Optimizer to calibrate the battery after the battery f/w update. However after install of OneKey Optimizer now I get a BSOD. I cannot restore from Acronis backups (externally), I cannot use the Win10 Repair PC option as every avenue takes me down the Bitlocker Recovery Key (to get going again) path. I didn't know this was enabled on a new PC and there's nothing about a key or password stored anywhere. Now it's a paperweight. I've seen similar when a system change is made with encryption running. There was a way to correct or change something in the UEFI/BIOS settings I thought. This was with another brand of PC though. Anyway to get past this even if I have to reset and lose everything?

A:New Yoga C930 wants Bitlocker Recovery Key

Microsoft turns on Bitlocker by default on windows 10 if you use a microsoft account and have a compatible drive. (I always turn it off.))  You can get the key from MS.

I just purchased a new Yoga C930 with an integrated camera.  I have changed all the settings I can think of to activate the camera to no avail. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still I cannot use the camera. Any suggestions?

I bought my wife a Yoga C930 for Christmas. It worked fine for a couple weeks. Then it sat for a few days used and when she went to use it again yesterday, it would not turn on. It should be fully charged as it had been plugged in. When you push the power button, the LED turns on, but the computer does absolutely nothing. It does not boot, or even go to a post screen. The display does not turn on, the fans don't turn on.....nothing. If I hold the power button for about 10 seconds, the led will go out, and it will turn on if I press again, but the computer never boots.  Any suggestions?

i just bought the new c930 (not yoga book but the yoga c930 ) and i installed all upadtes etc but i have not been getting the battery i expected. when i scroll my mouse to the battery bar, it constantly shows around 6-7 hours on full charge. all i am doing is web browsing. Is this normal? i expected to get around 9-10 hours for the web browsing. Also keep in mind i am on better performance so not the best performance or anything. Ya if i lower the performance even more i might be able to get a little more but i dont think thats normal. I dont have the 4k version either just the regular. If this is expected then fine but i am not sure.
