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.
