If you call IBM support, they should be able to get you in.  Otherwise, you can try locating the CMOS battery after opening up the laptop, removing the battery and the main battery for 1/2 hour and putting them back.

There are also back door passwords for the specific type of motherboard / type of bios /cmos you have :

I hope those help ! FYI - Callandor's suggestion is probably the one I would try first before trying these. The above options are just something you can try as a last resort !

However I will suggest that you go to the last URL and check that out first !!

Be carefull with the IBMs. I am not too knowledgeable on the E models but I know the T models can be very tricky, and if you removel the battery you will actully make things worse, the bios will lose its password but the HDD will keep its, so now you have two problems.
