I have a Thinkpad 600 2645 35U with a locked bios due to a password that I have no idea of what it is. I was wanting to know if I can take the hard drive, floppy and cd rom drives and use them in another brand of laptop. I want to get another one, maybe from E-bay, but I don't want another Thinkpad, because of the possibility of getting another one which might lock up after a year of using it. This is what happened with the one I have. Thanks.

I don't know why it locked up. It worked fine until a month ago. When I powered it on, i get a padlock symbol asking for a password. i have tried everything anyone suggested, and I can't get it unlocked. IBM said I had to get a new motherboard, but I am not willing to pay that much money on this machine.

Listen Weezie I don't want to go down the road of assumptions here but why, if this laptop is legitimately yours, why can't you remember the bios password?
A bios password would ask you every day you booted up.

It is mine. I have had it over a year. I bought it from E-bay. The guy I bought it from doesn't know the password. It was a computer used by some company. And it worked perfectly until the password screen came up. I have posted many messages on this board asking for help, but nothing worked. Now I am about ready to give up, and try to get another laptop. Which brings me to my original ? Can I use the hard drive, floppy and cd rom in a different brand of laptop?
