How to recover data from an encrypted IBM Thinkpad T61 by TPM?

My graphics card has gone out on my laptop and with some other motherboard issues that cannot be repaired.

My data is encrypted by the on-board TPM device on the motherboard.  How can I recover my data from my hard drive?

Look here, there are more links in google which say how to get over it. But they are all on your own risk.

If the drive cannot be oved to another identical machine for decryption - then forget about the data. That was the idea of this encryption that nobody gets to it if the machine is stolen.

I've installed the hard drive into a T60 model and it is prompting me for the encryption password in which I don't have.

Hi.

Please tell us, which encryption software or encr. method utilised the tpm to encrypt.
Did you start it in windows or how did you trigger encryption?
