Arguably the most important program on your Lenovo ThinkPad T60 is called your BIOS. This program loads the second you start your computer and is responsible for everything that happens with your machine after that. If you've added a password to your T60 BIOS configuration program and want to reset that password, you can do so using a backdoor password and the configuration utility itself.

Turn on your Lenovo Thinkpad T60 computer.
Watch for the status message "To interrupt normal start-up, press the blue ThinkVantage button" to appear on the screen. The only time you have the ability to access your BIOS is while this message is on your monitor. If this message disappears, you will have to restart your T60 and try again.
Press the "ThinkVantage" button on your T60. From the list of options that appears, select "Start set-up utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password. Type "merlin" and hit "Enter" to bypass the password prompt using your backdoor password and enter your main BIOS utility.
Select "Security." In this window, select "Set Password." Type the new password you want to use for your BIOS. Press "Enter" to finish resetting your T60 BIOS password.
