    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.
