Was recently given a ThinkPad but it's locked on boot. Get two icons, and nothing more. Any ideas how I can unlock the computer without dismantling it?

Are you saying that the computer is stuck at the startup screen?  Or is it asking for a password?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It's asking for a password but at the boot screen.

This could be a BIOS, Hard Drive, or Supervisor Password.
