    disconnect the motherboard battery for maybe 5 minutes with the main battery removed & external power disconnected. reconnect motherboard battery & connect external power or main battery to see if password is resolved.

    Your going to have fun fixing that problem. Try googling this "ibm t40 power on password reset" and read some of the links. Unfortunately it may cost you some money.
    good luck
