Just because you forgot the password that you manually assigned to your Lenovo X60 computer BIOS doesn't mean you will forever be unable to access this all important utility. All computer BIOS' ship with a backdoor master password to be used in exactly this type of situation. This backdoor master password will override your existing user password, allowing you to unlock your Lenovo X60 BIOS without using the original key.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Turn on your Lenovo X60 and press down on the blue coloured "Access IBM" button on your computer until the Lenovo BIOS access page is displayed.

  2. 2

    Highlight and select the option on screen (this screen is called the "ThinkVantage Productivity Center) that reads "Start set-up utility." You will be prompted to enter your BIOS password.

  3. 3

    Type "merlin" as your BIOS access password (include no quotation marks) and hit "Enter." Your BIOS on your Lenovo X60 will now load.
