I've got a W700 that I bought new in 2009. I know it's old but it works 100% and is still useful after 11 years. I'm trying to update it to Windows 10 as Win7 is now obsolete.
The install kept failing and one suggestion was to disable the graphics card (Quadro 2700M) in the BIOS.
So I rebooted and hit the F1 key and it asked me for a password. I don't EVER remember setting a password. I managed to access the BIOS in 'user' mode but couldn't change anything.
The support I found online suggested rebooting with the main battery and the backup battery removed, so I did that.
Now when I power-on it's asking me for a (different?) password - not to access the BIOS, but to access anything! My Thinkpad is currently a brick.
