Hey!

I just need some pointers to make sure that my T580 is compatible for unlocking.

Looking at the EEPROM chip, it looks to be the Winbond W25Q128JV

Booting the laptop brings me to a "0199: System Security - Security password retry count exceeded." after trying to get into the BIOS a few times. Pulling the CMOS battery does not clear the 0199 code but is now on top of a set date and time error, which obviously cannot be done without the password.

The icon looks like a person with a lock beside it.

Just making sure that I am all set to be able to proceed with the unlocking or if I now have a brick

Thank you!
