about 1 year ago I bought my X250 thinkpad on ebay. Recently I found out that the BIOS is locked. I contacted the seller and he told me he didnt know anything about the supervisor password.
I know that it is extremely hard to reset the SVP on newer thinkpad models.
Did anybody of you reset the SVP successfully wihtout replacing the motherboard (which is expensive of course)?

This tool is not Lenovo official and was made to help set screen resolutions -- the same way you manually encode screen resolutions for the EDID chip when building a Hackintosh.Thinky_X250 wrote: ↑Tue Apr 16, 2019 1:52 amdidn't work and would be funny if it did since I don't think Lenovo would provide customers with a tool to quickly reset the SVP
+1 amens to just changing the motherboard - I ended up having to do that since my camera and microphone were dead on my first motherboard anyway and what a difference it made afterward. Perhaps you could even search for the illusive i7-boards now.
