Boot problem IBM thinkpad r52 type 1860

Q: Boot problem IBM thinkpad r52 type 1860

I have An IBM thinkpad r52 type 1860 that I am borrowing from school to do work, but today I booted it up and it takes me to the bios password screen every time I boot the computer it will just take me to this screen so I need to know if there is some kind of like backdoor password that will temporarily override the password that IT set so I can see what the problem is and possibly fix it myself so I can boot it normally, I even try to press F12 to bring up the boot list so I can boot my Linux on a flash drive but it still takes me to the bios password screen, any he'll would be greatly appriciated because I needs to access the hard drive so I can do my work, with it being Christmas break for me, and schooling ending on like a month after that, I can't afford to wait until I go back to school to get the problem fixed. I basically need to access the bios so o can either copy an error code and come back here foe help or see what the bios says and possibly fix the problem myself.

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.)

I bought a used IBM Thinkpad T20 Thinkpad Type 2647-92U from eBay for use this semester on campus. It is in great shape and has a recent edition of Windows XP but an older version of MS Office which does not boot properly.

This computer was a part of a network and keeps trying to connect to it each time Windows loads. It came with a LinkSys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter 2.4 GHz 802.11g card.

The CD is an official copy; clean and has no scratches or nicks. The DVD/CD-ROM will boot other CD's such as music CD's and DVD films and data discs with MS Word files etc on them.

Any help would be appreciated!

That T-20 is pretty long in the tooth. I suspect your optical drive either needs cleaning, or is worn beyond repair.
Did you try the CD in another drive as a double check?

Hi, During my visit to US in January and February 2014 I purchased the X1 Carbon 2nd Gen (Type 20A7). I got back to south Brazil where I live, it worked fine until October 2014. Suddenly the X1 Carbon didn't boot anymore and the backlight keyboard keep flickering. I realized it was a known issue and several customers had the motherboard replaced or even the equipment replaced.  I planned to reach the US customer service in a future visit to the US but I could not travel to the US from that time, so I tryed to reach the Lenovo customer service in Brazil and check with them to pay for the service and parts replacement so I could have my X1 Carbon working again. I called and told the problem, they said it was possible to fix and they would send me a budget proposal in 4 work days.The customer service took about two weeks to get back to me and surprisingly the budget I received was of U$ 3,650.00 which is the cost of a new X1 Carbon in Brazil ( I paid U$ 2,180.00 in the US for the top version). I am very upset with Lenovo, I lost all the confidence I had to the brand. My only hope is that a senior executive of US Lenovo headquarter would take this matter and help me get my machine fixed or replaced, even for a reasonable value as I could not use it since October 2014.I really do not have much hope that this will help, I am sure it would be different if I have had the opoortunity to get back to the US just after the problem arose but it is so sad, I was ve...

Hi,I received my new ThinkPad X1 Yoga 20FQ one month ago. I'm very happy with it but for one week I'm very often unable to type the power-on password. When I turn on my X1 Yoga (3 times out of 4), the keyboard seems to be not working and I'm stuck at the padlock password prompt. I must insert a paperclip into the reset hole and restart to be able to get the keyboard working and be able to enter the password.  I'm wondering if anyone else have any similar issue and if so, if there is a simple way to fix it? or if I should return the X1 Yoga?  Thanks for your help,Steven

Greetings

Merry Christmas all~ my nephew has an IBM Thinkpad T40 which is doing something strange. When powered on nothing happens but the following.
Cap Lock Number Lock Battery Light and Sleep Mode lights all blink steadily along with one that has a circle with an angled Z in it. Nothing from hard drive activity light. They continue to blink once every half a second. I can not shut the computer off with out pulling the battery. Once that battery is pulled I hit the power button and the same process starts all over. The system was running well and as far as my nephew says nothing was spilled on it. Good Ole Uncle Smitty has been asked to take a look at it and I have no idea where to start. It has XP Pro but I never see a boot screen so I think its hardware related and not software. I have tried another battery and hard drive.
If anyone has seen this and can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Smitty

Hi,

I dont get why it wouldnt work as the thinkpad uses pc100, but the pc133 should scale back right? Im also not sure, but maybe it has to do with the density, i dont know what the thinkpad uses, nor if the ram purchased was high or low density, anyone have any ideas?

After the reboot which should start the upgrade, the notebook is in the state described above for around 2 minutes and then shows the blue troubleshooting page. when you click "continue booting into windows 10" it does this without installing the anniversary update (win 10 1067). S54016GB RAMSSD Samsung Evo 1TBbitlocker encrypted (using the hardware encryption of the SSD)

You might have damaged the power circuitry on the motherboard.  If that is the case, the only solution is to replace the board.  There is an array of power transistors that handles the switching back and forth between AC and battery.

I fix machines, so my first impression is always to fix, but you have at least 3 damaged parts (jack, panel and case).  If the jack is damaged, there may be an issue with nearby parts.  I cannot be  sure without seeing it, but my guess is that you would be better off selling the broken one on eBay and buying a different one.

My year old Thinkpad X Carbon opened this morning and for the first time ever, the keyboard would not respond. I could type nothing in Google search, a Word Doc, or anything. Even the arrow keys would not advance through a collection of photos. For some reason, the "Function/space bar" combo would backlight the keyboard, the only keyboard action that would respond. The touch pad and red button cursor would work. So, I could open any document, go to "bookmarks" and open any page in my browser, but could not type anything in any space that required text such as log in and password spaces.  I would hit a lettered key and nothing appeared on the screen. I have only found a couple of references on this forum that this might happen. In 25 years of computering, I have never had such a problem. Any thoughts? Bill PhillipsDurham, NC, USA

I cracked the LCD in the screen today, and it looks like there is nothing wrong with it at all unless one looks really closely, or if one looks at the screen from certain angles. I can see the point where the pressure was placed on the screen when i look directly at it, but it isn't too bad. I have to travel tomorrow to Haiti (talk about bad timing) and I need the laptop to work for the three weeks that I will be there. If it can last that long I will be very happy.
